Until the word bronies no longer has a squiggly red line under it I refuse to take them seriously

I’ve been trying to write some semblance of a speech for my story, which I will be presenting in two weeks, but it’s so hard to write about. Not in a triggering sense, but because it feels like bragging. I always talk about how writing about how sick you were and sharing dramatic before and after recovery photos are not really conducive to helping others heal, so what could I write about in regards to my experience that is genuine without having the potential to hurt others? I really want to reach out to anyone in the AA or NA community that have heard others tell their story so that I can do this right, because the group I am in is heavily based on the twelve steps, seeing as how half the members still go to AA meetings. 

Any suggestions?

Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
