For this Swedish caregiver, coming out was the path to authentic self-love, self-acceptance and community.
Coming out gave me peace and personal release of dis-ease that I held in my mind and body for a long time. Coming out is an expression of self-love and acceptance. It allowed me to better understand myself. Honoring oneself is the first step towards good health.
