Justin,
Welcome to male survivor. Like someone said above it is an exclusive club you had no choice in joining. You are among friends who understand. Read, post, vent, rant, chat whatever you need to do in your recovery you will be accepted here. You are not alone sadly. But it was not your fault for sure. You can get past this and heal and get your life and your heart back.

Justin - I am probably the least likely to give any advice. I am very new also and I struggle with trust. I don't trust anyone, but then again, there is something inside me that says to keep sticking MS out even though I want to quit at times. Coming here is brave. We are brave men because we survived our childhood. We are brave men because we broke the silence of our abuse and breaking the silence is extremely powerful and empowering.

Justin,
Welcome. You made a big decision in posting and coming to MS.
Breathe. It took me years of work to get to this site, years more to post. Take time. There's no rush.
Remember that you matter and that on this site, you're safe and among friends.
Good for you for taking a big step towards a better way of living.
Peace,
Jackson

I matter? i'm safe? i'm brave?
come on! i dont buy that for a second. that all sounds too good to be true. ive never believed any of that, after reading lots of stuff on here and on other places im guessing that i was just tricked, or brainwashed at some point you know if you hear something long enough or enough times you just believe it or if something happens for a longenough time it just becomes normal after a while. im afraid to be here but im afraid not to be and the more stuff i read here the more i think i have to be here for my own sanity or whats left of it.

Justin I know it sounds too good to be true and you don't have to believe it. Nothing will happen if you don't. Something might if you decide to test it though. You might find it possible to trust a little, let the secret out in a safe anonymous place actually feel better and freer and lighter. Again it is all up to you do whatever you want. Glad you are here. You are not alone. Not by a long shot.

If you feel up to it chat room is a good place to ask questions. Or fire away we can do it here. Your choice?
