Hi helpless

I can hear your 'helplessness' in your post. I'm sorry frown

In a moment he told you, the first person after all these years. That was a moment and now he's not so sure. And like Billy said, its real now.

Try not take it personal. He needs your support now more than ever, although you have to look after yourself in this because, as i'm sure you know, you cant make him do anything. So take a little step back. Tell him you love him, write him a letter. And wait. Be the mother you want to be, he will come good...he just needs some time.

Im the wife of a survivor. PM if you need, anytime smile

I have taken to the stand-up comedy stage to educate other male survivors and those who try to love them. I blog about my isolated religious upbringing where physical and sexual abuse were commonplace and I serve as a facilitator of a weekly support group for men who have suffered sexual assault.
