Just wanted to say a quick hello. My name is Will and I am very happy to have found this site. I was abused by my brother in law when I was 13. I will post my story when I am feeling ready too. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself.

Hi Will!

We're glad you found this site too. You've taken a big step in healing just by being here and posting.

This is a safe place to express yourself regarding your abuse. I think you'll find a lot of supprtive guys here. Take a look around at the postings, they can also be supportive/helpful. And don't feel any pressure to post your story. When and if you chose to share your experiences is entirely up to you.

Welcome again,

Hi Will,

Welcome aboard to MS. Here your brothers (fraternal) & friends (in pain) will offer you our compassion, understanding and love. We all have been there, into the very depths of our soul and hell too.

Here i am HOME. Here i need everyone of my fraternal brothers, to help me along this painful and sorrowful road to recovery.

So, Will, take our hand and we will make this journey together.

Heal well, Will, heal well.
