Hi,

I can only chime in with welcoming you, and telling you you're not alone. I was abused both as a child and as an adult, though not quite what you experienced. I can relate most to the shame. Thanks for having the courage to tell your story. I hope I can do my part to be supportive.

Ed

Hey Greg,

That was one powerful post, and it's good you got it out.

I can relate to your inability to "feel", I too suffer that left over lack of emotional connection.

It is the root of all the problems with the abuse, and my wife and my relationship. Thus the screen name emptydreamer.

You have found a fabulous place here, and healing is possible, I'm learning that myself and it is because of this place and the people here.

Best wishes and warmest regards,
Scott

Hi ArmyGuy,

I'm glad that I've had the chance to speak with you before and that, for the moment, we're only miles away.

I think it is great that you had the courage to share what you did. I could feel tears welling up as I read your post. I can relate to the fear and the shut down feelings. You touched my soul and you, along with everyone else here, share a part of my soul. It all seems kind of like a dream, doesn't it? And waking up is hard to do.

I hope that you find tons of support here. I'm in your corner, as many others are.

God bless,
John, The Music Man.
