You hurt me. You probably don't remember the days, but I will never forget them. The knife-like looks.The words like clubs, beating the flesh already wounded by you, by others. Pain has a vocabulary of its own, and you have mastered it with fluency.

Many of us survivors are plagued with addictions and compulsions and they can work insidiously to destroy us from within. Life is difficult enough without the challenges we survivors face, but we have to take those challenges on and make them our ow

Wow thanks for the support everyone and I'll look into the books you guys suggested. It means a lot to know that I'm not alone in this while also saddens me that there's so many guys in my situation. I'm glad I've found this place so thanks again.

Wow - it was just the reverse for me. Being a victim was a step that came after being a survivor, although in a real sense I became both at the same time. But it took years to truly understand fully - to admit - that I was a victim. Until therapy
