Hi I'm Irishmoose, I just found this site, I was abused about 60 years ago, I've never really forgotten it, but put it in the deep recesses of my memory, I turned to alcohol to try and forget, I was treated for alcohol abuse while i was on active duty in the Air Force by a social actions officer, but I never told him the REAL reason for my drinking problem. I had seen the book Abused Boys in the base library, and at first I thought it was about physical, emotional & mental abuse ( these things affected me) but to my supprise it was about male child sex abuse, well I'm going to try and get some PTSD help by the military clinic here in Germany. I think that I've finally got up the courage to tell someone who will help me.
