I'm new to Male Support and Im not real sure how to post new topics or chat with anyone. If anyone responds to this message, then I guess I've passed the first step. I'm computer illiterate and 47 yrs old, but still not too old to learn. Any help would eb appreciated. Thanks

Welcome! This is one of the best places you could find yourself, thanks to the people who make it such a good place.

I hope you take a look around and see some of what we have been through on our individual paths to healing. There is a lot of accumulated experience here. There is even more love and concern for one another. Despite what we have suffered we have found there is something inside us that still believes life can and will be good. We're nothing if not stubborn. \:\)

Most of the time we (the male survivors) post in one of the other forums. If you click the link to "Public Forums" above your message, you'll see the "Male Survivors" forum in the list. Click that to view the busiest forum here. You'll get used to it quickly, I'm sure.

I wish there was no reason for you or I to come looking for this place. I'm so very glad that it's here and that we have found it.

Looks like you passed the first test. As outis said most post on the "male survivor" forum. If you would like to chat then please follow the link at the bottom of each page. You will need to registor first. If you have any more questions please post them. I also echo outis when I say welcome and I am sorry you need us. You have found a place where we all heal together.

FLRich. As the others have said welcome. You have found a brotherhood of men and their loved ones that is second to none, in my opinion, on the face of the earth. You will find that you are never alone again and only support , suggestions and strong shoulders to lean on.
