My screenname comes from the idea that in my world, sex should come with strings attached... good strings... I love being attached to my wife in every way. And no strings attached sex is not at all good for me.

I am not ready to put my real name out there nor am I ready to post my face on the site. Scary thing... one of the avatars I have seen looks like my perp (older bro) shortly before I was molested.

I made my avatar after a session with my T when he was describing the victim => surviving => and thriving cycle. It shows survive as smaller than thrive because the goal is to thrive but first we need to survive.

they are both connected because in my therapy, they are inextricably linked, one building upon the other.

Love this thread.


Survive, then thrive
