He was a liar! I believe you. He was a piece of shit!

Tell what you need when you can. Do not feel like you have to disclose anything to us. Do so only when you feel comfortable with it.

We are all scared. It is a terrible burden these dreadful secrets that blacken our souls. You are here now with people who feel the same things and share many of the same experiences. When you are ready we will listen. We ask nothing of you. Talk when you are ready. It is OK to be scared. It means you are alive and you want to be safe. That is 100% normal. Stick around and join in when you are able.

Hey, G,

I hope that you have a good therapist to talk this stuff over with. If you don't have one we have a guide under the "resources," area, above. If you can not find one after checking that area out, get a hold of Ken Singer from the directory and check with him. He tries to keep up with who's who and where they are. OK?
Welcome to MaleSurvivor, we hope that we can give you the encouragement that you need.

Glaukos, I believe you! It's so important to be believed. I'm so sorry you're frightened, but it's so very understandable. I care about what happened to you, Glaukos. We all care. Bobby

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

Glaukos, in this place we will all believe you, and we all care.

He is a piece of shit, and I hope you can keep distance from him, maybe report him.

It is very hard to make any headway, when this is so raw, there are so many deep emotions, to go through, and it can make you feel like you are going mad.

We are all here for you,

As you have read already and I repeat, it was not your fault and you are not alone. We believe you. I still tremble and still am afraid espically when I have flashbacks.

Sometimes I hide in the corner of the room with my arms folded across my chest and somtimes I cry out in fear. On the outside I am 6' 3" tall but when this stuff happens I feel 4yars old again and I am 2' tall again. I did this last night.

I have found out that when you have these thoughts and memories like I did last night more and more, they lose their sting and you become less scared after awhile. They don't go away but you knoe the source and you can deal with them better.

Post when and If you are able. There are a bunch of supportive guys here that will really really care.

My best to you

I can't come to the phone right now, I am out living my life
