We held our second meeting last night and it went very well. I think we are all finding great support in being able to open up to each other and speak and listen about some of the same sort of things we all face as brothers. The invitation is open to anyone who would like to join us.

I would really like to attend, but I'm scared shitless. To get to RI, it's at least an hour, how far are you in relation to Providence?
That and Newport , plus Block Island are my only reference points.?
Thanks,
John here too

John,

I know that Ryan got in touch with you and gave you the contact info for the therapist helping us. We definitely have room. I actually work in Newport and it takes me about 40 minutes to get to Warwick.

Being scared is absolutely understandable but it doesn't last long at all.

Where from CT are you coming from?

The RI group has been meeting for a while now and we are all feeling good about it. We have a therapist involved who is donating his time and office space. We meet on Tuesday's at 6pm in Warwick, RI and we have room.

Please let us know if you are interested in joining. The 3 of us that make up the group are really find it helpful and we'd love for others to have the same feeling.

Somebody's looking out for me ... and I say that as an atheist.

A weekend full of regression into all these patterns I thought I'd left behind. Feeling awful about myself and everything else today.

Remembering the group I used to attend in Boston. Remembered that they talked about Male Survivor.

Don't know why I scrolled straight down to classifieds ... but here I am.

Are you really meeting tomorrow? Can I come?

I thought I would take some time to update everyone on our little RI group. While we are still only 3 in size we have all found the group to be so beneficial. A place to share anything we want to share with the voluntary assistance of a great therapist. I encourage anyone interested in joining our group to take the first step and simply post.

I hope you guys continue this group. My ex would have been fortunate to have been in a group like this. To learn coping skills other than the porn and cheating.

I learned so much in that relationship. I learned how tolerant I was, how in love I was and how I enabled him and allowed him to hurt me again and again...

Keep up the good work and I know it is HARD WORK!!

Karen

Thanks Karen. We have grown to four and would really like to get to 6. Sounds like your ex and I have a lot in common and my wife too is very tolerant. Thank you for the support.
