    Hey there, I'm Alex [He/They] I'm a Non-Binary Trans-Man. Also Bi/Pan-Romantic Asexual.

    I've been feeling pretty lost lately. I have been mostly out about my sexuality since I was around 16, but most people think I am bisexual instead. I don't really care to get into it with people IRL, as long as they know I am not straight it isn't really worth it.
    When it comes to me being a non-binary I came out to my long term partner and close friends about 2 months ago as quarantine really forced me to come to terms with who I am. So far my partner is the only person who knows that I am also a trans-man. They're supportive to an extent but they just don't understand; I can't fault them for not knowing how to help.
    I've been under tremendous stress from work, home, and school, and its not having a great impact on me mentally. I just need a friend or a community to rely on. I'm so so lost and am feeling horribly alone right now
