Good afternoon: I never really thought I would ever find a site like this one. I am thankful I stumbled on it after reading about it in a totally unrelated news account.

I have tried to deal with my abuse for many years. The abuse occured when I was 5 or 6 years old.
I just now 'officially' joined the beloved AARP..and that is a long time.

I plan to observe, read, and think about all of the content on this site before I share by story. Many thanks for helping me.

Welcome JM,

Many of us were unable to face the abuse and its affects on us, till later in life. It took me 42 years....2/3 of my life. For whatever time we have left, we can still become the whole healthy men we were meant to be. You came to the right place.
