Looking back on it, I joined EC almost 8 months ago, and my life has been utterly transformed since then - in part because of EC, but mostly because time heals. I came to terms with my sexuality, opened up to a couple of others, found out that around half of my friends were queer as well, got over what might have been the most hopeless crush I'd ever had, improved relations with my parents, befriended new people, expanded my music taste, virtually conquered my OCD, and more. I'm happier now than I have been in a while. Of course, not everything is perfect, but it's honestly close enough. How have your lives changed since you joined EC?
