I've been thinking recently. One in six males has been abused. What do these survivors do to support themselves when they grow up ?

I know of a pro football player, a singer in a popular rock band. Survivors cross a wide range of occupations. I am an engineer. What are you?

Keith,

Cool idea. What do we do? Great question.

I'm a university professor in Germany, where I teach Arabic and Middle East history. I've been there 8 years, and before that I taught at the University of London.

Much love,
Larry

I have been a Commercial Photographer for 20 yrs, mostly photographing furniture for manufacturers and retailers. In 2005 after my mother died I decided to go back to school and become a Massage Therapist, I wanted to make a difference in peoples lives on a one to one basis. I graduated in May of 2006 and am a Certified Massage Therapist. I work form home on a part time basis as I build my practice. I hope that some day I will be able to do it full time. It has been very rewarding to help alleviate peoples stress and pain. I have a client that is paralyzed from the neck down due to a diving accident in his back yard pool, it is very rewarding to know that I am a help to him and that he looks forward to our weekly sessions.

Great thread!
Peace and Love
David

Thanks for the replies so for guys. This is really interesting. A lot of us who come here seem to be problem solvers (including solving problems for people) or builders (including builders of minds).

I know we have younger members too. Any of y'all who are still studying are welcome to say what you have planned for the future. It might be interesting for you to look back in 10 years, and see how things actually turned out.

Keith...or is that Kieth.... LOL

I am self employed. I have been on and off for the last 15 years. Mostly retail.

I just find it very hard to deal with supervisors.

The major problem for me, is I get tired of doing the same thing over and over. So I will get a business started, work with it for awhile, then sell and run to the next thing.

Maybe I have ADA?

LOL,
Carl
