Hi.

My name is paul. I am new to this, but have good hopes for it. I was sexually abused, physically abused, and emotionally abused growing up, so I never had a childhood.

I have gotten to the point in my life that I can do this sort of thing with MS. I have a Higher Power, a spiritual plan of action through AA, and a good support team. I hope to include all of you in my support group. Thanks.

Peace.

Hi Paul,

Welcome! You have every reason to have high hopes with being here. I'm certain whatever issues you are facing, you will find a support system here if you ask for it and let the guys of MS into your recovery. Your third sentence could have been written by most of the men here. Abuse rarely happens in a vacuum. While many of the stories will have much in common, each man here is unique and offers a certain point of view to whatever issue you or another member bring up. I encourage you to make the most of it.

Once again, welcome.

sono

Paul,

Welcome! May you find the answers you are looking for, the childhood you lost, and the forgiveness and support you need as you walk through this process.

Glad you're here.

laugh Wow, thanks for replying man. That was a buzz to think that telling that part of my history would be taken favorably.

I guess it's true that I am not alone. SUPER!
