Hey guys,

Just wanted to let everyone know that since my stomach problems have completely cleared up I have truly gotten my mental crap together.

I am finally doing the things I used to do, I am progressing again. I am complete, a different person truly.

I don't worry about everything or what everyone thinks of me.
I don't try to help solve the worlds problems.
I don't have anxiety or depression.
I don't have an overwhelming urge to have sex.

I can summarize what took place to get me to this point.

I wrote my life story and published it, cathartic journaling, and it helped a lot.

I participated in professional counseling and really put forth all I had.

I continued to seek within and worked step by step to purged myself of any and all self defeating behaviors.

I forgave myself and others, mother, father, wife, etc.

I raised hell, got mad, cried, laughed and made my peace with God.

I finally surrendered my life to him and let him take the wheel.

I know that sounds like it happened yesterday but it took eleven years and I can safely say it was damn well worth it.

Most important things, in my opinion;

God, Therapy, admitting I had a problem that stemmed from the CSA, and forgiveness.

Thanks for listening,

P.S. I hope that this post does not offend, I just had to let it out. I am so very happy to feel, to feel joy and peace, to feel motivated to continue this life to its fullest.

Whatever It Takes, God

It is refreshing to hear that progress can be made and lives changed. sometimes we focus on all the sadness and negative things, we fail to see the positive things that are happening in our lives. It sounds as if you are at a good place in your life. I am happy for you and pray that it will continue.

With warm regards,
