Hello Male Survivors,

I am a CSA sibling incest survivor and my older brother was my abuser. I want to say that in the 7 years since speaking out to my family (after 23 years of silence) I have never found a place where I can really be me...while feeling protected, safe and comfortable in the company of sensitive men who are also survivors. This site has provided that and then some.

I am learning so much about men, their perspectives, their concerns, their healing processes, their desire to be whole and their overall courage to ask tough questions and share painful stories.

As a woman...I feel privileged to be included and I thank each of you from the bottom of my heart for helping me learn about myself through your experiences, needs, fears and most of all your desire to be loved, accepted, and understood.

God bless you all smile

Elissa
