A couple of weeks ago I spent an entire afternoon digging through old threads on the men's forum, seeing how much support there is, and (at that point) thinking recovery would never happen in my home. "It'll never happen" was a lie, and I both know it and feel it now. It can, will and does happen.

This thread has given me so much hope, and I thought it's well worth sharing. As I read it, I contemplate the lies I believe(d)...the general "keep the pretty" stuff from all parts of life, the lies surrounding CSA, the lies surrounding ideal marriages, the lies surrounding motherhood, the lies surrounding being a's a very powerful read, and I thank you all, survivors, for bringing that to us.

I'm going to come back to this thread and finish it, but I too find it useful. I correct the lies my husband says out loud, but I know there are probably tons hanging out in his brain that he dare not speak aloud. I'd love for him to shut those lies up too.

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to link my husband to it.
