I see you've been diagnosed w/ a few psychiatric disorders/diseases and was wondering if you take any medications to help with these issues? I do and it helps tremendously.

What possessed u to commit suicide at 17? Did u take pills?

Hey CJ, thank you reading the interview. To answer your question, I didn't take pills. I actually was going to cut myself, but I knew I couldn't go through with it. When I called my family I was reaching out because I didn't know how to express all of my emotions I held in. Showing the pain was easier. I was dealing with a lot. A guy who wanted to have sex with me befriended me in school and when I refused ended up telling my whole high school about me being gay. The rumors started. As you may or may not know being gay really wasn't accepted as it was now so I had fear of that. I was very vulnerable. My acting coach/director began to pressure me beyond the point of no return. School was becoming too much and a lot of things just didn't make sense. It was a very dark time for me, and by the grace of God I was able to find the light that would be my true self. Now I'm a fierce person who has so much love to give.
