Today marks one year since I joined MS, I can say that many milestones have been reached while here. So many have been here for me and helped me muddle through the haze that has been my life for so long. Last year on this day I was at the end of my rope, nothing made sense and the pain I was feeling was unlike anything I had ever felt before. I spent hours curled up crying while my soul was slowly being torn to pieces. I never would have thought that today, I would be ok. I have taken inventory of my self my emotions and my outlook on life and pieced them all together so that I can soldier on and continue this journey. These are some of the milestones I have made reached.

I have come to terms and been open and honest about my sexuality.
I know that I am not at fault for what happend to me so long ago
I have made progress reconciling with my father.
I know I am worth the effort needed to recover.
I have lost 50 lbs.
I let go of alot of my anger towards those I felt could have prevented my abuse.
I can see a tomorrow, one of joy.
I know I am a strong man, not a scared child.
I have started therapy.
and today I can laugh and smile when last year that was not possible.
I like who I am smile

Thanks again guys.... Peace

good work, man!
amazing progress.

How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....

This thread really caught my eye. So cool to see someone coming out from underneath all the crap we can carry around.

That was my favorite part! After a year in therapy I can say that once in a whole too. Looking forward to more progress now that i'm here at MS.

So cool to share this with others who know how great it is.
"Me too"-I don't think I will ever get tired of saying or hearing these two words.
