I signed up here a while ago but haven't posted anything. My uncle did stuff to me but I never told anyone except my cousins not long ago. He did the same to them before me. One of them told me to come here because people here will understand.

Is this ok?

Hi fvn, Welcome to Male Survivor!
I'm sorry to hear about your abusive uncle. I hope you are safe and out of his reach now?
I found this place a little bit over year ago and it added greatly to my life's quality. I found many friends here, found about some books/articles for survivors and read it, it really improved my knowledge and stance toward some problems that are connected to abuse.
Take your time for exploring the site in finding your way to connect to others.
Keep sharing with us!


PS. you made nice introduction topic, it is more than OK wink

Thank you!

I don't really know what to write. I never did something like this before.

My uncle is dead now. He died just more than a year ago.

I read a lot on here from when I joined. I don't really know why I decided to write something. I just want to not feel so alone!

Also English is not my first language so I'm sorry if it isn't good.

So you felt lonely and made step forward and reach out, that is great wink
We can talk about anything, good that you told us couple of things about your self for start. Maybe with some time you'll felt good to make some replies to other posts or write your story and post it (there is part of board for posting survivor's stories but it is not possible to comment it later), who knows.
And your English is excellent wink
