Welcome to MS. IMHO the greatest gift this site has to offer is the message that you are not alone. I hope you will continue to contribute to the conversation as you become more comfortable. Every story is different but they are all the same. Some survivors have explicit memories, some only fuzzy recollections, but what is clear to every survivor is the impact it has had on their life. Shame, fear, guilt, self-contempt, hiiding,, and too many other emotions to list. Just knowing that others deal successfully with these helps ease the pain and gives hope.

@Narya70, welcome to MS!! I lingered on the fringes for some time before posting anything. Being here has brought me strength and an understanding of myself through the eyes of other men. For a long time I lived with shame and unease, never having a true sense of myself. The men of MS have helped me find the voice of that inner child I lost.

I am glad you are with us; however, sad that you had to experience what you did. I hope you gather strength being here. Be the light, peace, and many blessings on your journey.

Thanks everyone! I do feel the love and welcome here. My healing has been seriously boosted by finally signing up and beginning to interact. There was something about taking the official step that opened up doors that were long closed. And this site has encouraged me to begin writing poetry again. That is a particular joy that has lain dormant for about 30 years. And it too it’s bringing healing and ways to grieve that I’ve needed. So appreciate the brotherhood.

For me being able to reach out to guys here when I was tempted to look at porn or do . other destructive things was huge as was joining HusbandMaterial.com. Take care!

Hi Friends,
I registered for this site a long time ago, but I now have the courage to say something. I was abused at the age of 8. I need some help! I want to talk about what happened. I know that fear is a liar!!! I am hesitant to push the reply button.

Well there is a step to be proud of right there. Well done Longhorns.

Longhorns,
Congratulations for taking an important first step. You are among friends here. When you’re ready, you can post your story or your questions and I’m sure you will be met with kind and compassionate and empathetic responses. You may want to create your own post in a particular forum so more people can see it. Glad you’re here!
