You know how it goes - when you are looking for similar things to identify with. I think all of us go through that - especially at the beginning of recovery. What I kind of hate is I am still looking for it. I would have hoped by now I would be beyond that and just reading to learn. But I still look for identifying markers in things I read. Words and statements that I can embrace for myself - a man who was assaulted as an adult.

I saw a bit of this once but not the whole thing. I did not post the link since it is a bit intense as it leads up to what occurs off camera - but even that is not on the video. There is a gap between the lead up and when he is discovered. It does not show anything graphic but is still powerful. But to me it is an amazing illustration, even as a snap shot, of a man about to be assaulted and a glimpse of the aftermath. I found the identification - that someone had put this together -gratifying as well as the revulsion I naturally felt. It did not bring up overwhelming feelings but did help me to put some things a bit in perspective from the night of my asssault.

If you want to view the video it is on youtube under "The Bill - Mickey gets raped". If you look up the show on the internet you will see that the character is a cop who is very sympathetic to victims of crimes. I don't know if they ever did anything else with the storyline but it would have been interesting to see the natural rejection of support for himself that he offered others.

Anyway, wanted to share this with you. Again, it can be triggering.

Daryl,

You touched my heart nearly a year ago as I revealed the assault that I experienced. You and you alone touched me here at MS as you shared your experience.

This video in its entirety shows just a portion of the "horror" our bodies felt some time ago. There are NOT many men like us who have given voice to the pain we endured BUT we are healing and more whole today than then.

Thanks for sharing of your heart and soul my dear friend.

Donnie

I found it under "The Bill: Mickey is raped."

Wow, what a powerful vid. Thanks for sharing Daryl.

I was curious at to whether the show did any more with the character of Mickey and his assault. I found this on wikipedia which did talk of how it was brought out in other story lines over the years. I appreciate that and hope it was done well. I would like to see those episodes to see how those stories were played out.

Daryl,

Thanks for sharing this. I only made it to about 40 seconds in. The thing that disturbed me the most about it were some of the comments left on the video by some people.

I posted my two cents against the comments some have made.

Marley,

I had read the comments and was disgusted by a couple of idiots. But I noticed that the majority of comments were sympathetic and compassionate. It is such a shame that folks exist who are so unfulfilled in their own lives that they would say such cruel things. Sad that there are many like that. But I appreciate the ones who said things indicating concern. I am sorry that it got to you but understand why it did.

Andy - good for you!


Daryl

Maybe it's my mind that is more disturbing than the comments as I am sure I'm making a big deal out of nothing.

I have to wonder how many people would not only say such things but might act on the things they say. I would hope none would. I also wonder what the motiviation is, is it that they need the attention so badly that they would say just about anything to get it?

I am convinced the majority of people in my life, co-workers and such would make light of, or make a joke out of such an issue if given the opportunity and that is pretty sad.
