first off it wasn't a stupid idea. You wanted to tell your story and I commend you for doing it. It takes a lot of courage to get this shit out but you did it tonight. I'm sure you are feeling awkward and uncomfortable, I know I felt like that and still do in many ways but your getting it out in a safe environment. You have all these great men here to help you bud. I'm glad you opened yourself up tonight Ryan. Way to go bud, huge fuckin step in your life.

It just makes me so sick and angry all this fucked up shit has happened to the men here, and continues to happen in our fucking world. Really fucked up.

I wanna give you a safe virtual hug Ryan.


You have been here for me and I wanna be here for you bud.

My heart went out to you as I read this. You do not owe anyone an apology at all for this very honest sharing. This took a lot of courage and I admire you for pushing through to do this.

I am so sorry for what was done to you and hope much healing for you. Thank you for the trust in this.

You was 6 yrs. old and ten yrs was a baby.

No way to process that.....not possible to be able to handle that..

Just a's ok.

You not a baby don't need to explain yourself to anybody...

We know that no child could handle that or should ever have to be horribly abused like that....but then you had no way to know that.....

I can't help but to say that you don't need to explain anything about those was just a baby....

That's all,
So so sad,
Glad you could say it...
All the best,

Don't mean you shouldn't say it.....cause you help everybody by saying it.....what I meant as adults...we know that we don't have to explain ourselves......

Ryan I'm so sorry.....

My story is on the members side of the forum.

This hurts just to read but I can't imagine what you must be feeling(actually I can, and thats what makes us brothers).

I know too well what that feels like.

I have had room mates wake me up from nightmares. One of them told me I was talking in my sleep, again, pleading for someone "untie me."

This is tough stuff man, no other way about it.

It was very courageous of you to post this.

I find when I talk about it, it loses its power over me and I am a little bit more free of it. I hope the same goes for you.

Ryan, thank you for sharing. You courage in doing so is the strength we feel. I don't know if I should say this as it fells weird kinda but, I'm proud of you.
I am sure you are spent from it, when I was becoming a Marine I was always spent. That was easy compared to what you just did.
We all do it from time to time, but need not ever apologize. It is not what we did or didn't do. It was done to us. Stabbing victims don't apologize, they have no reason to, neither do we.
Peace, fill your mind.... happiness, well from you, radiate healing through your heart. I don't really pray, but that would be my prayer for you. Thank you, Giggles.
