Welcome. This site (specifically this board) has helped me so many times over the past few years to see that my pain -- which I thought was all my mine -- is shared by an unfortunate fraternity who share my feelings. Good luck to you sir.

Peace,

Chris

Being a Male survivor , Trust is something that just comes with a lot of time. I was raped almost 31 years ago. I still find it hard to trust any one

Dear BROTHER, many THANKS from this old (69) man, I've been keeping this secret for 60 yrs and I'm now going to come to terms with it.
Thanks for the greetings.

Hi Syntaxed,
Thanks for your thoughts, I'm going to need a lot of help, now I know why I couldn't make any real relationships until into my 30's. I thank all you survivors out there for your encouragement and support. It only took me 69 yrs to figure it out, with the help of reading the book Abused Boys. Now it comes into focus.

Hey, Peter! Glad you're here. Keep posting and we'll keep posting back. This is a great place. I've been here since May and the friends I have met are excellent! I love the support here. These are honest, supportive guys here. We are truly brothers here and I hope you will come back many times. Since I have been coming to MS Land, I have done a tremendous amount of growth and coming to terms with my abuse. I no longer feel alone. I hope you will not feel alone either.

Lance

Peter,

Welcome to the site and I'm glad you found us. I guess you can see you are welcome here! You hit on a good book there. Mic Hunter's Abused Boys is one of the classics, along with Mike Lew's Victims No Longer. I recommend both of them very highly.

Much love,
Larry

Thanks from my heart to you all for your support. Just a few hours ago I got those memories back while washing dishes, I was real low, wanting to cry out, but I just can't bring myself to tell my 35 year old son about it. My German wife of 36 years wouldn't understand it. But my day of gudgement will come on this coming Monday when I'm going to ask my military doctor to get me some help ASAP for PTSD. I got chocked up remembering but GROWN MEN & BOYS DON"T CRY, isn't just what we boys were taught? If I feel the need to cry out I'll do it on this page and in the chat room. Thanks BROTHERS
