Although nothing written was directed to me, your words echoed across the barren half of my soul. Letting me know that I am not alone.
On the contrary - everything written here IS directed directly to YOU. that is why MS is here and why the public forums are open - to give access to everyone who needs these messages. and you have discovered one of the most precious truths already - you are NOT alone. you are a part of us - and you belong.
I am a newlywed (June 21 2013) who has a wonderful wife that knows all of my secrets & loves me unconditionally. She puts up with my destructive side and honestly confronts my pain. But being married has opened up a whole new can of worms that I had never dealt with before and am dealing with now.
great that you have a good and understanding and supportive wife. but yeah - that relationship also adds another level of complexity to recovery - because whatever you go through affects her too.
I am a a survivor of CSA who has never gone to counselling and has always faced his demons alone...struggling my way towards recovery.
you are no longer alone - there are over 12,000 others on this journey with you.
