I heard about FHFM from a YouTuber when I was searching for LGBT comforting videos. I was feeling extremely tired and severely depressed. I even had dark thoughts and suicidal ideation (I wanted to end my life at 35). To make it brief, my mental state was significantly going downhill. Physically I was fine.
I honestly feel like I was reborn again with a new perspective of life. My depression has got much better and I view life in a more optimistic lens, even though I'm still in a place that would ruin my life or kill me for just being LGBT. Overall, my mental health has improved dramatically.
I had issues with regard to asking for help and reconciling my sexual identity. Those are no longer the case, I have fully accepted myself and I gained a new understanding of a couple of things which I had a very bad experience with them.
I really liked my experience [in therapy w FHFM] as a whole and I had no problem with it. I only wish I done it earlier in my life. I liked that I didn't feel judged and crazy for voicing my thoughts. I had someone who gave me guidance and encouraged to do better and to be easy on myself when I make any mistake.
[The most challenging part of therapy was] talking about my family and my relationship with them. It's hard to think that the people who we call family could kill without a thought or care for the simple fact that you are not straight. It's heartbreaking to realize that fact.
Thank you Free Hearts Free Minds, Yasmine, and everyone involved. I'm forever grateful ♥️.
