Hi Joshua,

Welcome to MS, and welcome to the ASA forum.

Acceptance on someone else's terms is worse than rejection.

Welcome to MS. I'm assuming you're an ASA survivor.

Hope you find something here for yourself.

Hello Joshua,
Thank you for reaching out and taking time for this important forum.
Being assaulted from 7yrs old to 16 yrs old and then again at 39 this forum has helped me so much. Most people don't understand that we can be assaulted later on in life just as easy as it was when we did when we were younger.

Be Strong!
Hope Spring 2011

Thank you all for your kind works. As I am reading through some of the posts. I am amazing at how strong you all are and how supportive you are. Being an ASA is hard, there is a lot of discrimination and prejudice associated with it. When we were hurt the most, we tried to find support and sometimes those support systems let us down. I am glad that you all have shared your story and thoughts and encourage you to continue to share what is going on for you. Because of the work that all of you are doing, I hope that it brings about change and that change could simple be another ASA not feeling alone and finding the support they need. Again thank you all, you are amazing and strong!

Hi Josh and everyone,

I feel really weird sending a post here. I do have some questions and a story to share. I'm wondering if I should be here or not. Many other guys that I spoke with all told me the same thing, that I am an ASA as well as a CSA. I am really sick beyond sick of having sexual abuse as any part of my life, but I guess I have to accept it, like it or not.

I'm wondering when you have chats about ASA so that I can share what happened to me a few months ago and give me your input about whether I need to be here. I don't really want to post it. I feel stupid, scared and intimidated to post anything. I'm probably in denial because I'm really good at that, but I need to hear it from others here. It's not that I don't trust the other 13 guys who all said that I have recently become an ASA, because I do trust them all. I guess I just don't want to admit it or hear it yet. Maybe you all can help me to see my dilemma the way I am supposed to see it. Please help me to sort this out. I'm sorry that I might be a burden to any of you with my plight. I would appreciate your input, though.
