What a good response! Now you'll be doing not 'whatever you want' but 'whatever you need'. I've gone to several WORs throughout my time at MaleSurvivor and I've learned something good about myself every time. Every one of them was worth it.

These weekends are so supportive and so affirming that afterwards everything seems surreal. I couldn't believe it until I saw it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears, the emotions come out and the healing goes on.

Take good care of yourself,

Thanx, Steve. I am ... happpy? ... to report that it is official - I am through the "phone screening" - plane reservations, car, hotel - all booked. It's about as committed as I can get.

Of course, knowing my own abilities for self-sabatoge, that doesn't mean I won't find a way out of it - but after $$ paid - there's a MUCH greater chance I will be there.

But thanks are due - to you, Larry, Howard, Andy, and more that I'm sure I'm forgetting. All of you have always been there with an honest, edifying response.

If my going to Kirkridge is a victory - it is shared by those here at (mod, admin, member, what-have-you) that have been steadfast with their support.

I suppose the real test now, is what happens while I'm there...
