This past weekend after 25 years of silence I finally told my parents what happened to me. It is my time now.
Congratulations on taking this step. Most of us know what its like to have buried the sexually abusive experience we had, for many years...42 in my own case. Breaking out of that silence is hard work, and dealing with the many ways it has affected our adult lives is even harder. But what choice do we have really? I could not go on living with it anymore. We all have a chance at lives as whole healthy men if we do the work. You've made a start, now run with it! You will benefit for this site ifmake the effort. Good Luck Brother.
