Hi all

I'm Peter and about 2 months ago i typed in the words sexual abuse on google. Finally i started recognizing what was playing all these years. I've been addicted to smokin weed for a long period and after not being able to see friends, one helped me convincing it was time to quit.

After i quit all kind of old stuff came to the surface and the last thing i found out was that i was suffering from sexual abuse.

when i was young, my brother once abused me sexually. i thought it didnt matter, but i finally realize it did. it's good to know there's a place like malesurvivor, for i feel i need to talk to men who have experienced the same.

long story short, bad reason i came here but it sure gives a good feeling

Peter

Welcome Peter!

You hit the nail on the head. Many, many of us have experienced the same and one thing you learn quickly here is that you're not alone in this. One word of advice that was given to me when I arrived here: sexual abuse happens in secret, but healing happens out loud. Read/write/post as much as you can bear. It will get easier to do so in time. And we're always here for you. We've got your back.

Hi Peter,

I know how you feel. I also typed in something similar about being "fuc*ed" and the stories, etc all came flooding back. I wasnt abused by a relative but by someone I thought I trusted. I am new to this group and feel free to HMU if you want to talk and the biggest thing is getting into therapy and talking about things with other CSA survivors.
