    Wow, (sighs sadly) i understand u a lot. Growing up, my sexually orientation was dat being gay was d worst sin and so wen i noticed d urges, hated myself instantly. I am still getting used to accepting nyself d way i am. Hopefully we will get there. Our families are a lot similar. Mine do not knw about my sexuality yet, but i do knw dat d day dey do, it may b worse dan wat ur family did😢😢😢

    Who is cutting onions here? I couldn’t help but cry so hard after reading this story. Damn! We go through a lot with this skin but this experience is exactly what makes us stronger. As a Muslim, I can relate to your experience. At 18, I had my first session of exorcism to cast out the “Jinn in me”. Brother, I want to tell you that you are not alone. No matter how your family ostracized you or treated you badly, you are not alone. At your age, I am extremely proud of your strength. Jazakallahu Khairan for sharing your story.

    How on earth could your sister and brother in law ignore the fact that you needed to be on ARV’s soon after the knowledge of your diagnosis and instead allowed your parents to dictate what route of treatment was right for you? That is some unimaginable incompetence, negligence and pure evil. I’m appalled!
    One solution in all this chaos;
    Remove Religion from the equation and all the stupidity & callousness meted out to you would not have occurred.
    I do not know you from anywhere Adeena Rhodes but I’m sleeping better tonight knowing you are still here with us, fighting the good fight.
    You’re loved! We need you.

    You are strong my dear. I can’t believe you went through all that. I always thought my childhood was messed up but this! Wow

    You sure are a fighter. You have come a long way and I believe you’ll go far in life. I can relate with being gay n from a staunch Muslim family. I’m fighting my own Demon presently. I’ve stopped teaching the Hadith after subhi and my salary aren’t constant anymore.

    I keep feeling like a hypocrite each time I hold the microphone.
    Las las, we’ll be fine.

    I was referred by a friend to read this and I can say that what a battle you have fought! The adversities and many near death experiences you have had. I can only empathise with you. Grateful you have come this far. Alhamdulillah. Please focus more now on your general health, keep up with your appointments and meds as well as prioritise your mental health! These are non- negotiable. I wish you more courage and strength as you push further. Thank you so much for sharing ♥️

    Seriously, this same Unilorin that I’m in? I actually think Unilorin (or Ilorin) generally don’t have gays because of their strong religious beliefs but you just opened my eyes 😁.
    I’ll be looking forward to meeting other gays here in Unilorin, after all I’m still new to this gay biz, I can do with a bit of guidance 😁
