Eric,

Welcome to the site - I'm so sorry you are going through this right now. I understand those feelings coming so fast you don't know what to do with them - it is scary and horrifying, but you made it through - letting yourself go back takes great strength and courage - Like Ken said, everyone here understands the pain and anguish. We are here to listen and support you, and know you will do the same for us. It truly is a wonderful brotherhood you've come across.

Dan

Erik,
Something just like this happened to me when I finally faced my abuse after 25 years. I felt my whole life was a lie and what the hell have I been doing for 25 years. I cried at the drop of a hat, everything became emotional for me and I was so used to not feeling I did not know it was OK to feel the emotions I was feeling.
I found that after a couple weeks of crying I was actually healing by releasing all the emotions I kept hid away. The secrets were out and it was a strange new life and it was hard to adjust to. Just try to hang in there and cry as much as you need to, let it all out. venting here, and asking for help on the boards is a good start and there is a great support network here at MS.

Erik, sometimes these things come out and scare the hell out of us. The only thing I can say, is that, after going through that episode, you are one step closer to healing. Take it one piece at a time. Everything will be alright. Trust me.

I know everything you've learned growing up is now being contradicted. Talk about confusing. However, when you're scared, just realize, that as your life changes, the world becomes so much more beautiful. Each step closer, you'll feel it more and more. You're over the hump. We may go back and forward at times, but, as a whole, you are moving in the right direction. You'll find in the future, why all of this was worth it. Stay strong. You can do this!
