hi group!!!! Im a new member just posting for the first time. my screen name is Mr. Sims15 after a radio DJ tha gave me great solace during the years when I was abused. that was when I was in my early teens. I am now middle aged and am still greatly affected by the abuse of that time and childhood. It was principally of a sexual nature although I was pretty badly assaulted and beaten up by bullys in school for years. Im told survivors of sexual abuse commonly experience difficulty with self protection as a result of the abuse. I am diagnosed w/ PTSD and have really uncomfortable disturbing thoughts of seeking revenge against my attackers to the point where I cant achieve peace within. just need someone to talk to. would also like to be of help to others if I can.

Mr. Sims,

Welcome to Male Survivor! I'm glad that you found us!

Unfortunately, many of the folks here are middle age men who are just starting to deal with our childhood abuse issues. I was lucky enough to find this place and some of the wonderful supportive men here back in 2001. This site gave me the courage to start to deal with my issues of guilt, shame and anger. Today, I'm happy to report - Life if Good!

Recovery is Very Possible!

Brian

Hey, Mr. S

Welcome. I kept my abuse a secret for 37 years, and only started working on recovery last March - this site has been a huge benefit to me. As Michael said, we understand, we have been there - there is no judgement here. There are only the most amazing group of men you will ever find.

Hi, Mr. Sims,

Welcome, I hope you are able to find at least some of the answers you're looking for while interacting with us here. You've come to the right place.

Take your time getting acquainted and only say what you feel you are ready to say. The big rule around here is to make sure you "take care of you" first.

Lots of love,

John

Welcome, Mr. Sims, I'm glad you have found MS. It's a great place for healing with a bunch of great guys who really do "get it" when it comes to talking about the effects of all this.
