Hi, I just switch my name from Kann to happythoughts,, I just told my family and girl I know what what happen to me 40 years ago, pretty bad day, I did it thru email and I still don't know if I can look them in the face.. the weight of sham is on me.

Hey man GREAT JOB! I hope you allow yourself to feel the pride you deserve for finding that kind of courage. I'm sure you are feeling a lot of emotion right now man but it will get better. just know we are still in your corner. you are a great man what happened does not change that in any way. Just breathe and then keep on going man you are worth it
Either I will find a way, or I will make one.

it took a lot of courage to make that post, and i am glad that you are here and that you will be able to find answers, friends, and good things for your own recovery.

good luck with the family thing.


If you cannot control what happens to you, you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

i know the feeling - sometimes i'm 6, sometimes 11, sometimes 13, sometimes 15 - all of those feelings frozen in time that could not be fully experienced at the time. i am looking forward to a reunion of all my younger selves some day.
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.

Hey, thats okay man. It will all come together for you. It took balls to "come out" like you did. Whatever the reactions you get from girl or family, you will know you did what's right for YOU. YOUR healing, YOUR recovery, come first from now on.

I will remember you
Will you remember me?

welcome to a place where you can express your self.
i pray you find comfort on these pages.

i, too, felt it was necessary to share my experience with my friends and family and learn to live with their various reactions.

just try to give them time and space to process your information. please be patient with them. it is hard, it hurts, but it helps. i hope my words make sense.
