Stephan,

Glad you are here and making friends here. There are a lot of really great guys.

Sorry Niels for confusing Holland and The Netherlands... that's what I get for posting early in the morning and sleep deprived! LOL blush

Yeah, I think we've all been here. This takes lots of work and there are lots of strategies for getting there. You just have to find the right strategies, the ones you feel comfortable with, and follow through.

Peace and love Stephan!

Michael

Hi, St3v3n, Let me welcome you aboard too, as you can see you have a lot of company. But St3v3n, you are in the right place, at the right time, with the right people. True friends and brothers in healing. We here have opened up our very souls to each other, here I am HOME, and here you will get compasion, understanding and love. We all might not always agree on what we post for answers in TRYING to help each other out. But I sure need each and everyone of them in helping me. I'm 69 yrs old, those memories have just resurfaced a few months ago. So here you can vent your innermost part of your soul, and you will get understanding, compassion and love, from TRUE FRIENDS and BROTHERS, please consider me as one of them. Heal well.

Hi, Steven:

I really identified with your experiences with your parents. My parents were much the same way. I also am agoraphobic, and although I can play in from of a stadium or concert hall filled to the rafters, if I have to AMONG those people I freak out!

thanks so much for sharing!
