I don't think I'm quite ready to tell my whole story in the Survivor Stories yet, so I figured I'd start here. It'll be long enough. My main romantic/sexual abuser in my life was my 2-years-older sister. That's something I've taken a long time to ad

Yes, definitely. For starters, I'm a research scientist, so I read journals for my work, but that's in a different field. Regarding topics more related to abuse, I've used research to help me recognize symptoms of trauma and c-ptsd so I could identi

GreyBrackle - what you are describing sounds pretty "normal" for the beginning stages of realizing the truth of abuse. Part of it is shock. part is a struggle to overcome the repression and denial of memories that leaves you distracted and

1) How much does the feminist movement intimidate male survivors? A rhetoric that tends to accuse men, can be heard to us in a different way and be another reason for us to keep silent. (Why should I tell somebody my mother abused me if that person
