Hi all,

I just wanted to say I'm so thankful for joining a community of fellow survivors. I am trying to figure this all out 25 years after my abuse's occurred. It definitely hasn't been easy thus far, and I'm thankful that I can now find my voice and don't feel ashamed of myself for not telling my story earlier.

I want and need to heal for my family. I have isolated myself for years and have turned to food as my way of escape. This has only enhanced my feelings of worthlessness as I'm now a morbidly obese man.

I'm in the beginning stages of healing and I hope our paths will cross on here as supporters of each other. Thanks in advance.

Welcome Dolphins,

I took hope you find the support and the similarities in our stories. From the time of my pornographic session with my mother and her photographer friend it took me 25 years to describe what happened.

It is only then that my therapist indicated it was incest. I do not have any memories which have surfaced, but I have dozens of experiences. Which I have had to accept are demonstrations of abuse, When I was 45 years old I explained I was not severely abused, they didn't break my bones.

We all have different stories, and we all are just the same.

Again welcome I hope you find support and accept us as your peers.

Welcome Dolphinsfan,

Many of us waited years before we had the strength, and perhaps desperation, to disclose our childhood sexual abuse. You are in good company. We are men in all shapes and sizes, all walks of life, all ages, all orientations, and from several different countires. But the one thing that unites us is our childhood experiences, and how that affected our lives. You've made a good start by posting your introduction. Keep reading and posting when you need to get something out or ask a question. From this point forward, you do not have to do this alone.

Jude
