Nice to meet you, Henri, despite the rotten circumstances. Always glad to see someone taking that step and making these issues more real to the world.

Henri,

I truly applaud your courage and determination to let everyone know the pain and suffering caused by the csa.

i look forward to seeing the sequels and learning from them. i look forward to getting to know you better through them, as well.

i am glad that you have chosen to move forward in your recovery at such a youthful age. i wish i would have been able to do that.

you are a great example to all of us.

peace

paul

that took a lot of guts man. It is nice to meet you. I hope you are moving forward in your recovery. It's a struggle sometimes but we've been through worst. Like Paul said, it is amazing that you started your recovery in your 20's , i hope other guys watch your video and learn a few things.
Good luck bro,

Anthony

Henri,

I'm amazed and in awe that you would share yourself with us in such a personal way and Paul and Anthony are right, it's remarkable that you've begun your recovery so young.

Be of good courage as you produce your videos and take your time. Reveal more when it's appropriate.

Rusty

Wow.

Congrats on making the video bro. It had to have taken a lot of courage to sit down in front of that camera and pour out your soul like that. I made a video of myself a few years back detailing my abuse and the after effects. I never intended to put it on Youtube or anything, just for my own personal viewing. It was extremely uncomfortable sitting there in front of that camera talking to myself and in the end I was so disgusted that I couldn't bear to look at myself on the computer screen. I ended up deleting it. Maybe someday down the road I'll have enough courage to not only make a new one but be able to be open and honest about it like you have been. Thanks and good luck on your recovery. I hope it helps.

Terrick

"how painful it was"

Haunting. The voice over these speakers reminded me of the interviews on This American Life.

Good job.
