Back after a lot of years, sorry for anyone that were hurt or felt hurt by me.

It's not my heart ever to hurt anyone, especially any of you guys.

going through a lot, which has always been "normal" for me, but I'm struggling hard lately. I don't know what I need, but I do need. I don't know where to turn so much of the time.

Hi. I think I can relate. I feel like I'm back at school in this forum and everyone is the same as me this time. It's comforting.

I've looked to see some of my older posts and feel pretty bad about how I responded to guys who were just trying to comprehend what I was trying to communicate and be supportive.

If any of the guys are still around here I just want them to understand how my perceptions of things then were really being twisted by overmedication of wrong meds and being at the mercy of doctors on top of my being extremely scared trying to get a handle on what I deal with. I'm still responsible to some extent and that's why I've felt a need to say i'm sorry in this or another post to them.

I appreciate you guys being welcoming

Yeah, we all say stupid hurtful shit, some of us more than others. I still do all the time. And I struggle with the same hangups you wrote about back in the day. (I researched). But we also grow and strive to be better than the person we once were. It sounds like you're doing that now with this apology.

Let me ask you this: what could else the MS site provide to you that would empower your healing?

Thinking of starting some new iniatives on this platform and for the org. at large (BTW I'm a new member of the MS Board of Directors) As someone who's used Male Survivor resources a long time I wonder if you have any ideas about additional services you'd like to see. It's okay of you don't know. Think on it, yeah?

Hi there usmc97

We all respond badly at times, those are most likely times that are very hard on us as well. I can understand where it comes from know of some of your trauma. I think people get over stuff very quick as they realize you are hurting also. So I don't know that apologies are necessary but maybe welcome by some. Not necessary for me I am ok with you saying what you need to and make my own decision to read.

I had to leave once when you were talking in chat about the preacher. It stressed me badly. It did not trigger me as I got away fast enough. I do not see that has your problem I see it as mine and something I need to work on.

Church was one place that I was attack and made do things I didn't want to. I trigger when entering the basement of any church still today and that was around 50 years ago.

I say you have to get it out when it is ready to come out so let it fly. We can decide if we can read it. We can leave and take a break and maybe next time it comes up it won't be as hard for us to listen to it. Exposure to this stuff helps.

I encourage you to talk as you need to and we will read if we are able. You are a good man and have a lot of pain. I am here if you need my support or just my ear.
Peace be safe
