i think it's the last thing people want to do

i've been thinking about telling my friend so that i can talk to him about things of that nature, he has his problems, and when he's depressed he'll phone me up or ask me to go and play snooker to talk. i've never told him about me, he's the only person that i think i could talk to about things like this. but then he would get freaked out wouldn't he, maybe he wouldn't believe me, he always thought i was quite a strong boy in school i think, i mean i was small and slightly built, but i don't think he ever thought i was weak of mind to have let something like that happen, i always try to make out i'm a strong person.

maybe it will destroy who he thinks i am, he will look at me differently

have you ever told your story to a friend? do you regret it?

I told someone who was very close to me last week. She did not take it very well.
I have had more positive outcomes from disclosure than negative.
You might want to read the section on disclosure before making the move to tell someone.
