My name is Jeremy and I am an abuse survivor. I suppose it's no surprise that having just turned 41, I have reached a point where I needed to reach out to others in hopes of both lending support and trying to unravel the messy bits of my own biography.

Hello to all, and a heartfelt thank you to everyone who helps support this effort.

Very best,

--Jeremy

Also, can someone point me to the paid members forum. I just registered as a paying member but cannot find any relevant links to the private forums. Thanks!

Meanwhile, please make use of our public discussion boards, private message feature, various articles on surviving sexual abuse, Weekend of Recovery information and the New York City Conference.


Please feel free to Private Message myself or any other Moderator about site questions.

Hi Jeremy and welcome to Male survivor!
Take some time and explore this site, there are a lot of resources offered to survivors which are very helpful.
If you have made payment for membership just wait it is obviously pending (it seems that procedure is a little bit slower during weekends). After someone from MS stuff approve it you'll become full member and part of board for members will be shown at the bottom of forum list.
Keep sharing with us!
Pero

Hi Jeremy,

Welcome to MS.

I am glad you have found this place of healing and support.

If you do not have a therapist I strongly suggest you get one as soon as your circumstances allow you to do so. For help in finding a therapist please read the Consumers Guide to Therapist Shopping. Psychology Today has listings for all states and counties. You can choose the type of therapist you are seeking as well as the area(s) to which you are willng to travel. Also check your county rape crisis center. They offer services to males and females, at no cost to county residents. Some offer support groups in addition to individual therapy. Healing from these horrors is not an endeavor to be done without the help of a professional, preferably one trained to work with trauma and/ or sexual abuse.

At your own pace, read the boards and wander into chat. The lounge (chat) is open 24 hours a day though it isn't always populated.

We also have moderated chats called Healing Circles. They meet on Sunday and Wednesday evenings at 9pm eastern time and one on Tuesday at 19:00 UTC (European and African time zone) which translates to 2 PM Eastern US time zone. The Healing Circle on Tuesdays is scheduled to resume in September.

Again, welcome to MS.
