Yolester/Lester,

Welcome regardless of your name ;\) . Its a great group and the site is wide open. There isn't any agenda or program, apart from helping each other to heal as best we can. Just post or join in wherever and whenever you feel you can, and you will soon get to know most of the "usual suspects".

Larry

Welcome Lester.

I confess the phoenetics of your member name jumped out at me for a second, but I appreciate your explanation.

Lester, hey at least you explained your name, because it made me jump at what you called yourself, and while I don not take exception, maybe others will,

welcome here,

Actually, thicko that I am, I was wondering what the fuss was all about until just this morning. But as you get into things here I think people will be okay about the name. You certainly have a right to your nickname from childhood.

thanx for your understanding. i tried to change the name in Profile, but the system wouldnt let me. i am diagnosed with PTSD. not only sex abuse perpertrated by various adults when i was young boy, also beaten up by kids at school. i wasnt safe anywhere and in spite of being over 6 feet tall and 200 plus pounds, i still cant protect myself. people walk all over me. i hope this group will help me with these and other issues. again, thanx for you understanding with the name. Lester.
