Once you hear the details of victory, it is hard to distinguish it from a defeat.

I borderline belong in this category, but despite being a member of MS for many years I've never really opened up much. My abuse was at about 15-16, with my abuser only a year or two older, and even here I find it pretty much impossible to open up for fear of judgment. We're never going to get much public understanding because its like advocating for the fate of the spotted endobacterial on Jupiter. Its just too foreign for most people to get.

You are right people need to respond to each other. I am sorry I admit I have not been following this forum closely. I realize every victim despite age and gender of perpetrator needs support and compassion. Violation is violation. Sometimes I get lost in the Males Survivor forum.

I am glad you are here and please let out your anger and rage. Sharing your story helps you to heal, you no longer bury it within. I understand affirmation that you are being heard is also important. Thank you for reminding us of the need to acknowledge our support of each other.

all i did was read posts for years before i was comfortable enough to contribute.

but once i started communicating... i could't quit.

it feels great to express emotions.

i highly recommend breaking the silence.

I feel on here when opening up about my abuse that it reminds me of my ex partner her friends and family, but my wife and her friends would wait till I was smashed out my head to interrogate me and offered me no help

Morning everyone. I will have to admit that I have so far done more reading than posting. I started posting earlier this year, and it was after a couple years of inactivity. I took a big step and started sharing my insides. It goes against my defenses to share, after many years of trying to hide my feelings becsuse of my distrust of people. But now I have found a place to help the healing occur.

The way I see it, this board has 3 levels, or 3 purposes. The first step is discovery, reading and learning what this site has to help you. The second step is sharing your story. The third step is mingling and building bridges in this community of people who have had similar experiences. We are here for each other, and we as the healing process changes us, however many years it may take, we can share each step, our progress.
He sent His WORD and healed us, and delivered us from our desructions. Psalms 107:20 (New King James version)

I feel ashamed that I don't reply , at all.
I don't know what to say.
I am nervous. What if I say something that is offensive?
What if a guy knows something , that I cant help with?
What if.....I guess I am much better face-to-face.
I cant see the facial expressions , I cant comment on how their
personality is.
Shouldn't matter! Yes that is right!
and thanks for posting this.
