Cool topic wink
I've used my pseudonym (Pero Peric) usually when I'm on line. It could be translated into English like Mr. Nobody. It is a real but very funny sounding name in my native language. I've used this identity to reach some porn web pages; I'm shameful because of this but I've accepted my past and my shameful side. Now I'm using this name just for healing purpose it keeps me somehow focused on my recovery.

Here is other similar topic where we wrote about our nicks and avatars in similar manner. It seems like good idea to connect these two threads wink

i came here after my daughter told me my husband/ her father abused her. then i did what mothers do and stopped the abuse, reported the perp. then he turned out as a victim of insane abuses in the childhood. my daughter didnt want him in jail and the other kids as well. i was in a place where i thought i would be confused for a lifetime.
everything is always okay in the end, if it's not, then it's not the end

Mine is pretty self explanitory too. :-) However, I chose it because I signed up right after I found out about my DH's abuse. See, I WAS at the point of giving up. We could not get any further in our relationship. I was making appointments with divorce lawyers and preparing myself to separate from the man I love. And then he came home from his counseling appointment, he sat down with me and told me about what happened to him. He had remembered a few days before that and he had no idea what to do. The reason we could not get anywhere with our work on our relationship is because we were putting bandaids on the wound with out treating it. At that moment - I decided from here on out, I would not give up on him, on us and on a happy future. SO - here I am with hope that we will live a good happy life.

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Suwanee can be spelled with one 'n' or two. As a Native American word, It is possibly a Timucuan description meaning "crooked black water." This is a good description since the rivers on the coastal plain in this part of the country are often the color of strong tea. The color is caused by decaying plant matter. It's clean, but dark. The darkness is accentuated by the bright white sand bars along the river.

It is both the name of a town in Georgia and the famous river (as in "...way down upon the Suwannee River...") that flows from Georgia, into Florida and on to the Gulf of Mexico.

I've canoed the river many times over the years, so it is a special place to me that reminds me of good times.

I've got this life
And the will to show
I will always be
Better than before

a few months ago, I found a storybook called "Ben the beaver" in my letterbox with a note in it "for Ben, to say thank you. Found it on a flea market, thought you'd like it." I'm still trying to find out who put it in my letterbox, but it absolutely made my day.
It's about a beaver who wants to cross a big, wild river and finally manages to do so, because he doesn't give up.. kind of felt good to take it as a nickname for this.
If we're not entirely ourselves, truly in this present moment, we'll miss everything.

I grew up on a farm and looked a lot like my avatar when I was first abused. Except I had blonde hair. It reminds me of the innocence I lost.

My dad was a farmer and I was a farmer's boy.

13 years ago I married a farmer (my beautiful wife) and became her boy.

3 years ago I gave up my job as a Graphic Designer to work with her on our own dairy farm so now I am a real farmer boy.

I ride motor bikes, horses, drive tractors, plough paddocks, fix fences, milk cows, pull calves - the whole deal.

I am a real farmer....and I am a boy.

.....although sense coming here I am starting to feel like a man.
More than meets the eye!

Gretta was my most loyal sweet dog. I loved her like she was my child.
