Just yesterday I heard Dr. Fradkin for the first time on the radio 89.5 FM. After dropping a friend off at the airport I tuned into my favorite radio station to listen to some tunes. Instead of music I got to listen to Dr. Fradkin talk about his book "Male Survivors" and tears began roll down my face as I was driving. When I got home I ordered his book Male Survivors. I really hope this site helps me heal and have somewhat of a normal life. I am sad all the time and have major trust issues, anxiety, and depression.

As a Graduate of MS.org I can promise you that if you put in the work and are 100% honest about what happened and what you do to cope and really start talking about your life, well then you can expect more than what you are hoping for.

Being at the southern tip of Africa, MS.org was my only resource, we have no groups and no therapists that specialize in CSA, and I think that things worked out pretty darn OK.

Keep at it and never give up

Heal well
Martin
