Hi Andy!

Welcome!! How to start? I just spent a whole lot of time reading. Then, once I was ready, I started to ask some quiestions and posted My Story.

Don't feel like you have to DO anything till you are ready sir!

Just know that there's a TON of healing to be had here!

Hey...my wife is from MN..Cool Place!! (litterally - cool)

Andy,

Welcome. Your presence here enriches all of us. Don't feel any pressure to do or say anything you don't want to. Just know that we are all here to love and support one another.

A lot of us began our journey here by posting our story of our abuse. The experience of sharing our story and receiving support and sympathy can be healing, but it's also not necessary.

You can also post you feelings, questions, anything you want. If something is bothering you or confusing you, feel free to ask. Chances are a lot of us have shared similar thoughts or questions.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome and support. \:\)

I'm glad to be here. I'm not really new to the survivor boards, but I am to this one (relatively). I come from a pretty much disolved one on America Online. It's been a while since I've posted there, however. I gotta say, it's nice that there's one for males. What a great idea. My old home was mostly women, and while it still was great there, somehow I feel more comfy around men in my situation. It's a shame that a few people saying innapropriate things ruined the whole AOL board.

Thanks for being here.

andy
