Welcome aboard mate. This site is great, the guys here are great, the support here is great. Everything is great. Don't worry about anything. It's okay to be nervous at first but you'll get past that. Take your time and go as slow as you need but keep the momentum. It will get better, I promise. \:\)

Welcome Kip,

This is a great place with very caring guys. I would encourage you to spend some time reading past posts and the articles on this site, they have been a great help for me. I discovered I was not alone in my feelings and my views. That made a huge difference for me.

I guess by now a theme is emerging here, huh?

You're welcome here. We've been through sexual abuse, and through various distances on our respective recoveries. I hope seeing that we're here and you're welcome will make you feel a little safer as you work on your own recovery.

Come out of the cold.

Welcome to MS. It can be a little intimidating to post here at first but it gets easier. It can also be a wonderful help in your recovery.

Hope you find much healing among the good men here on this site.
