Because what happened to me started in a bar I kind of started staying away from those kinds of places. I turned myself into a hermit. My friends both think it's a good idea for me to go with them next time they drive out to Pittsburgh to go clubbi

Today I received an invitation to an event at the Diocese. It sent me off--not sure why. It contained a kind note. I was in the office lobby when I checked the mailbox. I went running out and ran. Two people I gather went after me. I found myself on

Dear Daniel, For me the simple realization that I had absolutely no say in the matter of my abuse made it easy to "drop the shame" and lose the guilt. Realizing *I didn't do anything*, THEY DID, made it a no-brainer for me. I didn't do shi
