I am new to this site, and I am glad I found it. I was brought up in a family of six, the two youngest, Peter and I are identical twins. My father raped us since we were toddlers and made us watch, this went on for years. Peter and I are very close today, we are 41 now and each see a psychiatrist, have our own families, and are recovering alcoholics. We have battled being happy in life. Something like this never leaves you. It doesn't for Peter and I. We now take it one day at a time and pray. I just wanted to introduce myself as an adult survivor of incest and rape. Thank you for taking the time to read my entry.

Michael

Michael,
Welcome. It is great you were able to write your post above. It is a big step to do this. You are so right that "something like this never leaves you". I wish you all the best.

Welcome to MS, Michael. So sorry you and your brother went through such a terrible childhood, but glad you've found this site. I hope you will find your time spent here to be helpful, and that you are able to enjoy the brotherhood, understanding and empathy from others here, as I have. Best of luck to you on your journey to recovery.

Peace,

John

Welcome to MS Michael,
I'm also identical twin as you and your brother Peter (my bro is here known as Ivo).
I hope that you'll bring here your brother too smile !
Here is link for new men here, there is even some homework for you if you'll like it: http://www.malesurvivor.org/docs/FirstStepstoGetHelp.doc
Be aware of chat sessions called Healing Circle - very useful tool for getting some support and sharing experience and list of books livable at bibliography part of this web portal.
Our bible (among others) is book called:
Victims No Longer: Men Recovering from Incest and Other Sexual Child Abuse by Mike Lew
I hope that you'll share as much as possible whit us and get some healing from this.
Be Well!

Welcome Michael,
Your story is difficult to read, but fulfilling in the knowledge that you and Peter are so close and comfort each other. I am sure that your individual recovery has been beneficial in the relationship towards securing the happy moments in life.

I look forward to your shares and supports in your upcoming posts, fellow survivor.

Sam

Michael, welcome to the CSA recovery unit. :-)

This is a place where I have felt nearly every emotion i am capable of and I am grateful for it's existence.

I hope your experience is what you need to continue with your growth out of the hell you were thrown into.
