Hi, I'm Michael. Just found the site and joined MaleSurvivors.org and will be going to the Hope Springs Weekend of Recovery in Peebles, Ohio next month. Anyone else going? (I know this is a very private matter for many, but am trying to make connections with other survivors...)

Hi, Michael,
I'm Russ, or REJ in the chatroom, and I am going to the Hope Springs weekend as well. I am really excited about going...hopeful that it will be a shot in the arm toward my recovery. I've only been working on my CSA since March in a real way, so I'm bringing lots of hope to Hope Springs.

Glad to hear from you...Welcome to the MS site...glad you've found this wonderful place.

Russ

Hey, Michael.

I am not going on the retreat, but just wanted to say "welcome" to the site. I hope you find as much support here as I have. Like Russ, I am fairly new to my recovery (march as well) and have made some wonderful connections here since then.

Dan

Hey Michael,
You sound just like me, I signed up here March 31, 2004 and was at my first retreat in Canada in Early May 2004. I'm not going but there are PLENTY of facilitators there to help you if you start to have problems, so don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

Hope you have a great time
Jason

Guys,

This is a really good way to find out if a particular retreat is something you could handle and would benefit from. It's great to see so many guys coming back from these gatherings with such positive news and feedback! \:\)

Much love,
Larry

Michael,

Sorry I didn't see you when you first arrived here, so I just want to add another word of welcome. I hope you are still considering the retreat experiences, and if you've been to one I wonder how you feel about it now. Did it help you?

Much love,
Larry

I've never been, but I've already registered for next month. Can't wait! And I've made friends on the sight that will be there too!
