My Coming Out Story Spans 26 Years – Dr LuLu, growing up Queer in Nigeria

First off, I don’t use the phrase ‘coming out’ anymore. I use ‘invited in’ -I don’t believe that I was ever in a closet. I have always been myself.

Being raised Catholic in Nigeria, one of the most homophobic countries in the world was very tough.

As I got older, I never stopped being attracted to women. I did my due diligence and married a man, bore three fine children, but my attraction remained.

It was only at the age of 42, after my first marriage ended that I finally decided to live in authenticity. That’s when I decided to stop living for others. To start living for myself.

Soon after that I met my now ex-wife, and the rest as they say is history.

A Core Memory

I could hear the pitter patter of my children’s feet running around and their laughter filling the air. Such a divine moment, I could feel peacefulness wrapping itself all around me.

Heal your mind, body and soul, so your children don’t have to heal from you

I spent the entire weekend with my ex and his new wife. My children had the best time ever, and it was even fun for me and my wife. Now I’m not saying it was easy, but I also knew this weekend wasn’t about me, it was about my children. Allowing them to make memories with their father and seeing us successfully co parent together again. Heal your mind, body and soul, so your children don’t have to heal from you.

Binging, bulimia, and restrictive diets – Fat Athletes transforming the Fat narrative

I’ve been fat since I was a child. I’ve joined weight loss groups, tried fad diets, and been stuck in a cycle of restriction and binging. The latter led to unhealthy relationships with food and bulimia. None of those things made me thin, and they certainly didn’t make me healthy. Most importantly, they made me unhappy. Only when I began to accept myself, as fat, did I begin to find happiness.
