I did tell the T as much as I had told my wife, but I still haven't told either of them all of it. And I haven't told anyone else. Just not ready, I guess.
Me Either. But I tell more and more all the time.
I keep trying even though I am so afraid.

On a Positive note Rachel at the poetry reading thing found me a male survivor group therapy only 50 - 65 miles away. I may be admitted to attend as soon as in 3 weeks - Assuming i can find someone to drive me in case I am unable to drive after sessions.

Some Things are not problems to be solved, rather, they are facts which must be coped with over time.

I started group therapy a few weeks ago and it's so good. It'll be worth every bit of effort to travel.

Our T asked us all "what are you getting out of this ?" and we all agreed that no matter how much 1 to 1 T we do, how much we read and learn or how much we share on sites like this there's nothing to touch the feeling of someone looking you straight in the eye as you share your life and it's history with them.
Especially when they look at you with that unmistakable feeling of empathy in their eyes, the one that tells you that you are not alone, and they know EXACTLY how you feel.

That's a feeling that's as good to give as it is to receive, it's a feeling that I look forward to all week.


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
