Its the name of a fellow survivor here who many of us know to be a very strong and very brave man. He's also a man who cares for all of us here.

I'm proud of his recovery and his friendship.

His name is Gabriel. It's great he's ready for us to know him by his name. It's a good name of a good man who was a good kid.

See, I knew there was a good name behind the letter G. Just glad you took the step to tell everyone your name. Feels good to be known and recognized huh? Nice dog pic you have for your profile by the way.

Gabriel! that is a great step to feel free/empowered to disclose you real name. MrWhiskers is ok, but Gabriel is way, way better (awesome name). And you, Gabriel are an amazing human being. I feel privileged to be able to call you Primo, lol.
Keep up with taking these steps cause they're certainly an inspiration for all of us; you are more than a good man; you're a great man. Love you primo!

gabriel....

i think it's an awesome name....

you know how i am... to be able to call someone by their name is a sign from me that i have respect for that person...

i've been waiting for awhile now to be able to call you gabriel because i was respecting your wishes to not to....

however, i'm so excited, and proud, to see you take this huge step in knowing that who you are is what makes gabriel a good man, a strong man and not what was done to gabriel...

keep moving forward... especially in the area of being proud of yourself and loving yourself as you did last night.... that was a major step forward...

proud of you gabriel! very proud! smile

Heal well, my fraternal brother, Gabriel, heal well.

I have a friend named Gabriel. His words have been so supportive and stable. Hes always able, to help a friend in need. A cherished acquaintance of mine, indeed.

I call him Mr.Dub out of love, I met him at this online club. Its where brothers assemble to share their troubles, physical, emotional, and mental. I find we are all on the same level.

And everyday we climb higher, on the pillar of recovery, the elite Survivors. The dark days are past, true friends are what last. From day one its been a blast, combining fears, tears, and laughs.

In the company of Gabriel this place has always kept it real, and I wanted to show how I feel. Mr.Dub, you've helped me heal.

3 Cheers for Gabriel and All the Male Survivors!!

Gabriel,

It was a big step for you to move out from behind your screen name "MrWhiskers". Proud of you and congratulations on getting to this huge milestone in your recovery.

Gabe you need to dig deep and you need to keep going to0.

People depend on you and need you, we both know that.

Don't isolate right now. Let people here who care for you, care for you now in your pain.

Be well Gabe.

There are no words or explanation for it Gabe but.. Some would say Gods Will but as I guy with faith I can't make sense of your loss.

None f it makes sense but you need to keep at this for them and for you.....

It's the best I got right now. Words just don't seem to cover it.
