I'm Devin I'm always nervous around people in public except for my wife of 3 months, whom I'm having a baby with. I joined to see if I can get some ideas to be more trusting of people (all the doctor's helped me with is depression) I'm still to ashamed of what happened to me to tell people in person the only ones I've told non-anonymously is my wife and psychiatrist.

I feel like I'm a burden to everyone I'm close to and I don't want my daughter to think there's something wrong with her dad, I just need to get some peace of mind.

Welcome, Devin!

you've come to a good place for help in reaching those goals.
tell us more about yourself when you feel up to it.
and let us know how we can support you.

Welcome To MS Devin!

You've taken a courageous first step in facing and dealing with what was done to you, just by speaking out. Take your time, but know that every time you talk about it, it has less power over you. As some one said to me when I first got here: "CSA takes place in secret, but healing is done out loud".

We all have our own stories to tell, and our own wounds to heal. But we also have much in common. Soak up the wisdom from others who are further down this road. Share your own wisdom with others. You will overcome this.
