Coming out killed me (almost)

In this video I talk about how I came out to my family in 2010 and how within 28 days nearly died of Guillain-Barré Syndrome. Beginning with foot-drop and progressing to full-body paralysis, I couldn’t move and was awake the whole time. A couple of months on life support and not being able to speak gives you time to think, and I couldn’t help but wonder, was I being punished by God? Let me know your thoughts…
