Hello.I first heard about MS about a month ago from my T.I have been registered and visiting the site fo a couple of wks now.As I have read the many postings and a few personal stories I sometimes felt overwhelmed by the honesty,openess a
nd encouragement being shared.I should keep this brief.
I was orphaned when I was 2 days old.At the age of 3 I was placed in foster care with a family.They had one child of their own,a son.My half sister was placed in the same family with me about a year later.What followed was years of abuse.Violent physical beatings,cruelty,psychological abuse and sex abuse.Any real life never happened.I existed to survive.One of the postings I read said"What did I lose"?When their son molested me any hope of dignity was gone.I am older than most using this site.From the age of 7 I knew anyone could do whatever they wanted to me and it mattered to no one.I was alone worthless and defenseless in the world.From that time on I was a fugitive always on the run.I am getting help now and I am going to thank my T for suggesting I visit MS. Thanks for Listening.

The thearapist that I am seeing now is the first councilor that have met that has been able to understand where I am coming from.

Hi, my fraternal brother, Sentry.

Welcome to MS. Here you will receive compassion, understanding, hope & love. From your brothers (fraternal) & friends (in pain).
We all have been there. We have been into the depths of our soul & hell too.

We will hear your cries. We will help in your fears & share in your tears.

You already know about the emotional roller coaster of emotions. Hang on for the ride of your life.

Glad that you are in therapy. Glad that you are here with your fraternal brothers. We all travel this road arm in arm shoulder to shoulder. When one of us falls, another brother will come and take our hand and continue on our journey to recovery & healing.

My brother, Sentry, wishing you well in healing. You are on your way here too.

Great courage to have made your first post. real proud of you.

"I will take that lost boys hand, and I will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity." As he is me.

Pete..Irishmoose.

you might be surprised to know how many of us have been around the block a few tmore times than most.

it's never too late to heal.

hope you'll find the respect, sense of worth and acceptance here that you deserve.
