Hello Men: my name is Doug and I am 30 years old. I've been married eight years and we have an 18 month old daughter. My wife and I both work in higher education and we love it.

I was molested by my step-dad when I was eight years old and it went on for two years. I have struggled with life ever since.

I'm an alum of the Dalongah(spell?) 2012 weekend of recovery and I highly recommend you go. Life changing.

hey, doug - welcome!!

i too was abused by a step-father. and it has affected everything ever since.

just to let you know - i get it.

in a way i envy you - you are starting to deal with it way younger than i. lots of better years ahead!

all the best on your journey...
Lee

Hi Doug,
I've just seen your other post where you talking about attending WOR and seeing your self as not so successful as other survivors. Someone asked question what is success in that post.
Well let me tell you something, if I could chose I would like more to be married and have wife and child than to have some high positioned career. Happiness is not somewhere outside of us, we all have to find it in our hearts.
You already achieved so much, give some credit to yourself, you deserve it man!
I can't wait to find some more gems from you and your life, I have some feeling that there is much more wink!
