"You're only as sick as your secrets": Kirsty Spraggon

Recommended Posts

Although it has only been a little over a year for me and I am no where near the place Kirsty is on her journey, I wanted to share these videos with all of you that I recently came across.


Kirsty did a TEDx talk and follow-up Podcast with Jenelle from The STD Project on coming out about having herpes, her struggles and pains with shame and guilt, and what she has learned along the way. Hearing her speak has triggered SEVERE emotions in me. I cried uncontrollably watching and listening to her in every audio/video, but in a cleansing "It feels so good to know I am not alone in this" kind of way. I can relate to everything that she says on many levels, as I'm sure all of you will be able to as well.


This link contains all three audio/videos (the TEDx talk, her own personal "coming out" video, and Podcast interview):




Cheers, lovelies.
