Andy,

I certainly am no expert on others peoples' pain and emotional journey. All I can say is for me when my roller coaster ride is going down the hill, I try to make the most out of how bad I am feeling. I feel I need those down times to tell myself or convince myself that when the good times/better times come around, to grasp onto them and enjoy them all the more.

I AM beginning to enjoy the good times more and more. I use to think if I felt good then I should feel guilty for feeling good. Why am I feeling good? I am suppose to feel bad as I deal with CSA? Because I feel good does this mean that I am not working hard enough of healing? Does this mean I am not wanting to heal? Does this mean I have given up on healing? I hope it just means that there is a time when my mind will not be consumed with what happened to me, but how can I make the best out of the rest of my life.

Ken

Hey Andy, guys,
At least when we feel, we know we're human. Yep, when I'm down I'm the turd in the toilet waiting for someone to push the lever and flush me away. The lows are generally off the radar of "normal" in my opinion, but it just means I'm an overly sensitive guy. That kinda helps make the lows not last so long. I'm still down, nowhere near getting up, but I'm a little better than yesterday, and a whole lot better than the day before.

We were all robbed of our childhood. Now, we can indulge ourselves in the innocent pleasures of a child. I feel no guilt or shame for wanting this. If I want to make a newspaper pirate hat, put on an eyepatch, and float popsicle stick rafts in the sewers then dammit I'm going to do it! (Of course, I hope that I'll have my nephew with me so I don't feel like too much of a dork!) Some of the happiest people I've met embrace the childish side of them - it keeps them young. And to those who want to judge me as immature or silly for wanting to play with Lego or take plastic army men into the bath with me, then F--- them! They're just jealous that they aren't secure enough with themselves to just have fun! \:\)

Take care of you,
SCOTT

Hi Andy;
Bro you've gotta hang in there. I know all about those deep gutters and valleys . Every morning I got to drag my sorry ass out of bed and face that painful nagging song that poisons my heart.
But; you know friend there is happiness and longing peace at the end of the tunnel. That's not some lame whimsical fairy-tale.
We will all victoriously triumph. In that I have absolutely no doubt. Keep up your hope and faith.
Much love
webrooter aka Chris
