Hi Steve and welcome to Male survivor,
I'm sorry that you have been molested by your uncle frown
Please take your time and slowly learn about resources that are available for us here.
Many survivors have to fight isolation that has left as reminder of abuse and that is sometimes very difficult task.
In that respect I've found very helpful being part of this community. Sharing and giving support to each other is something that helps me a lot.
Please look how to connect to others here.
For your information you are 10,000th member of this site and we even have thread about that wink

Keep sharing with us!
Pero

Hi Steve, welcome to this site. You are brave to have posted your story and you describe your emotions and feelings well. Just know that you are not alone and that there are many of us here at MS who share your fear and uncertainty about who we are. I hope that you will find the peace and healing that you deserve.

Do you guys ever feel overwhelmed by all this? In dealing with abuse does it then dominate your whole life? Am I going to define myself from now on as a "survivor"? Will I ever laugh again? Will I ever just be "ok" again?

U can laugh and be ok again
Acknowledging a long hidden truth is disruptive and can seem overwhelming in the moment-if you reac h out for help a integrate tools for healthy living and recovery the future is bright and you will be.a stronger man.

And sometimes this is very painful as we move ahead.

I can definitely relate to cringing at being touched, the depression and isolation I live it everyday I work outside the house but I always seem to disassociate myself when I'm there.

There are only certain people that I feel comfortable with touching me and even then sometimes I pull away from them. We all have issues that we have to deal with, I am kind of lost myself so I can't really give any advise other than hang in there and know that you're not alone.
