    Hello all

    Some of you may or may not remember me

    Over the past several months, I've came to some realizations about myself.

    I suffer from Social Anxiety, but worse than that, Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria which I was in denial about but eventually accepted after an online friend kept urging me to look into it.

    For those who noticed I was gone with no explanation, I'm sorry. I wasn't in the greatest of headspaces and as I said above, I no longer found much joy here, but with all this Virus crap, I started to get lonely and decided to try coming back again.

    I also came to the realization and have accepted the fact that I'm Bisexual (and Pansexual), but will keep to Bisexual for the sake of simplicity.

    Hopefully I'll be welcome back with open arms, and see what's new

    Good to see you again man, I was on a hiatus myself for a few months. I came back a couple weeks ago and was wondering where you were.

    I stayed. But I wondered where you all were. Glad to see you, @Isadoorian , I did look for you on your profile page but found no news of a recent sighting. (Anyone seen @Autistamatic ?)

    Glad to hear you are in the ranks of the nonheterosexuals, we need all the out n proud folks we can get! Yes, with gender being so pleasingly diverse, bisexuality doesn't always say enough...

    Welcome back. I kind of think of this place as a virtual waiting room. But one where the doctor never sees you next.

    ;)

    It felt like you were dealing with some internal issues and we had half of you.☺
