Wednesday's Thoughts: Going Through Changes

Image
It's been 2 months since I've started hormone replacement therapy and continued on the journey to "Yannick." It has been a journey and a half. Through mental, emotional, and physical changes, I am processing this better than I thought.
  There has been some challenges. One of those being coming out to my family as a whole. My Mom, Dad, and Step Mom and siblings all know, but however there are a few close relatives such as my Grandmother and Uncle who don't know. Maybe they know or maybe they are in denial. However, I am waiting until I move to the DMV to really come out. The reason being South Carolina won't have to owe me anything.
  I'm getting my mindset back after the passing of my beloved uncle and I'm refocused on the things that I love doing. I don't think people really understand what one with mental illness especially being transgender deal with on a daily basis. Depression and Anxiety is real. I just wish people didn't always give…

5 Years Since The Diagnosis

Image
This blog post will find you a couple days before World AIDS Day which is on December 1st, 2017. Although we deal with HIV/AIDS awareness and education and what not on this day, the work does not stop and start on one day. It is an on going thing.   I chose this time to write this blog post, because today marks 5 years since, I found out that I had contracted HIV.  I will never forget that day for as long as I shall live. It was in 2012.   I had went in for my routine testing which was every 3-6 months.  I acknowledged that I was doing some risky sexual behaviors. Mind you I was a former sex worker, amateur porn star, and just living dangerously. I did hard drugs which is a constant struggle, but I'm yet holding on.   I had already had a dream months prior that I would end up positive, but the next day I had taken a test that came back negative, meaning that at that time I was not termed positive or the test was non reactive.  However, a few months later I decided to get tested…

Death, Loss, and Life

So I realize that it has been a while since I've actually written in this blog.  I do try to post as much as possible. I'm coming to learn that blogging is a good cathartic release of all of the energy that has been plaguing life and more.  I'm thankful for the gift of writing and what it does for the human soul.
  I must admit the last week and a half has been kind of rough.  I recently loss one of my favorite uncles, Mario.  Sadly he passed away, but thankfully he is not suffering anymore and he's not in pain or having to battle being confined to a wheelchair. He's gotten his wings and I'm just glad that he's not suffering anymore.
  This has been the second loss I've experienced in my family since April, so it has been kind of crazy.  To add on top of that, I've started hormone replacement therapy and I've been real bitch!!! With so many people in my ear about this and that, I actually just need a reprieve from it all.  So I've decid…

"Greenleaf" and the Black Church Part 2: Prostitution of the Blaqueer

Image
Part 1 of my "Greenleaf" blog series is up!!!

  For those who have kept up with one of the two Gay Story Lines in Oprah's new show "Greenleaf"  , you know that I'm about to go the fuck OFF about the prostitution of the Blaqueer community and the bullshit we often go through in the Black Church.
  In the last couple episodes of Greenleaf a new praise and worship leader by the name of Carlton Cruise, played by actor Parnell Damone Marcano, is sought out by The Bishop's singing daughter, Charity, played by Deborah Joy Winans (yes she's Bebe and Cece's Sister). Now the shade is that Charity's husband Kevin Saterlee played by Tye White is on the Downlow but we'll hit that point later.

Hurt People Hurt People

Image
In my lifetime I have heard and experienced the unfortunate cliche “,hurt people hurt people.” This simply means that people who have been hurt at some point in their life lash out and inflict emotional, mental, physical, and sometimes even spiritual pain on those around them.  It could be that certain words are triggers, certain phrases can set a person off or that people simply accomplishing certain goals can cause the person who have been hurt to lash out.   Many questions may come to mind. One question may be “why do hurt people hurt others when they can heal or get help to heal that hurt.” Well, that is easier answered than accomplished.  When a person is hurt they tend to internalize the role as a victim. If a person has been victimized with in a great trauma, often times they carry around the weight of that hurt and the pain and use it as a defense mechanism.  The hurt that was done to that person may have caused them to feel insecure which can and will affect relationships an…

Even I Get Tired

Image
We all get to a point to where we get burned out and get tired.  Burn out happens when you are over your head in stress and when so many people desire so much of your time.  But sometimes we get tired and we have to take some time for ourselves to regroup and refresh.   I'm at that point right now.  It happens every blue moon.  I do apologize for not being very active on this blog site, but I haven't really felt like blogging nor have I had the time.  I do thank you all for viewing this blog site and I thank you for showing your support and keeping up with my Youtube Channel.  I may not have a million views nor a million followers, but I am thankful that you all think enough of me to come by and to comment, share, and input your ideas into this blog.   It really means a lot to me.  I pray that you all bare with me as I change some things in my routine. I realize that with some things going on in my life, that posting may not happen everyday, but I count it all joy when I am…
