I just joined today and am stepping out of my comfort zone of silence to introduce myself. I'm 33 years old and am trying this as a way to hopefully meet others, understand that there are other people besides me who are trying to overcome. From birth to 6, I was raised in an extremely abusive household (physically, sexually, emotionally, verbally). I was pulled from the house and placed in a foster home that was not much better than the environment that I had been removed from. I was finally adopted a few years later only to end up being molested by an uncle (something that none of my family now knows about). For years, I bottled everything up....somewhat successfully, but at times completely unsuccessfully. The memories are beginning to flood back and I'm not sure what to do with it all. I have resorted to unhelpful coping mechanisms and live my life on the verge of the end on a day to day basis. I'm hoping that I can come to an understanding of everything and learn how to have relationships, learn how to trust, learn how to not be so dang angry all the time.

Welcome kyrobo07, we had different stories but mine is similar to your in some ways. Even though everyone's story is different, we have shared hurts and can help each other. Here you can find support, and healing is possible. Welcome Brother!

Welcome Kyrob,

You are in good company here. We are men in all shapes and sizes, all walks of life, all ages, all orientations, and from several different countires. But the one thing that unites us is our childhood experiences, and how that affected our lives. You've made a good start by posting your introduction. Keep reading and posting when you need to get something out or ask a question. From this point forward, you do not have to do this alone.

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Welcome to the forum. I am very new here as well, but already I have found it so important to be able to interact with people who have stories like mine. So much of what you write is familiar: the details are different but the negative effects are so similar. That is what makes us a community. People are not here to judge or blame you, but to help you.
