Welcome to MS Tom. I am glad that you are getting good support from your therapist and your family and you have found your way to this community. It has helped me a lot on my recovery path and I hope you find that to be the case for you as well. But honestly I am sorry that you had such a traumatic start in life and have to be here.
Good work on that first post. Not easy for any of us, especially in the beginning. I sometimes take days putting a post together and then can't get up the nerve to hit that submit button.
You will find all kinds of men here and from all walks of life. All different and yet so much in common it strikes me almost every time I visit. Take care. Wish you peace. Dave
