23 and WTF?!?
23 and WTF?!? is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
This is my first post, so I will keep it simple, and tell you some basics:
I am in the thick of a DNA mystery; I am, as they say, processing, and it’s helpful for me to talk about it. Plus, despite how upending and strange all of this is, even I find it sort of fascinating (mostly when I forget that I am the subject.) Instead of telling the same story as it unfolds to those closest to me, I figured I could write about it and share it this way.
So if you got an email inviting you to receive this newsletter, it’s either because I know you, or someone close to me knows you.
In some ways everything is out in the open—that is how I discovered my own mystery. I’m not ashamed of who I am—nor, hopefully, of however it turns out I came to be.
But not everyone involved is up to speed. I don’t even know the whole of who is involved, or how. I am still unsure about the best way to approach this so I will use pseudonyms when/as needed. I’m on the DL for now, so I ask you to please be discreet as well.
Later I will try to explain why I am both comfortable sharing all this, and also asking for privacy. It’s fuzzy and messy. This is how things are.
