I'm 57yr old. I was a victim of incest from the age of 8-13, raped by roommate at 18 while in the AF. and molested by my Dr. at age 27.

Welcome to MaleSurvivor where we're glad you found us, but saddened you needed to.

I'm so sorry for the multiple episodes of abuse you've experienced and for the impact it's had on your life. Remember to take some slow deep breaths and share what you are comfortable with at your own pace.

I hope this place, and we fellow survivors, can be a part of your healing journey.

Everybody's been through their own hell
There's nothing too special about getting hurt
Getting over it, that takes the work

Several similarities in our stories, Greg, as well as our birth year.

Glad you found MS; you're in safe and good company here.
I have taken to the stand-up comedy stage to educate other male survivors and those who try to love them. I blog about my isolated religious upbringing where physical and sexual abuse were commonplace and I serve as a facilitator of a weekly support group for men who have suffered sexual assault.
