I first started dealing with the abuse issues back in 1999 via online websites the predate Malesurvivor. The one that had the biggest impact on me was, M.A.S.S.F. that was around for a few years and shut down when the founder couldn't handle the stress of running it. Shortly after that one shut down Malesurvivor opened, and I was one of the early joiners here. By the time I started here I had most of my "ah ha" moments already, so I never spent a lot of time posting, but mostly reading. I would disappear for months or a year at a time, too. Anyway I figured an update would be in order, I've been at this for 18 years now, I should have something to show or say about it, right? So here it is;
