I know we have not met yet, but I want you to know I think you are kind of a big deal. In fact, I think you're awesome. Here's why:

1) You are on this site, which means you have at least admitted to yourself what happened. It took me almost 25 years to face up to my childhood sexual abuse. It really does not matter how long it's taken, this is a big step. I applaud you.

2) You are amazingly strong! You made it through a type of hell that most folks will never experience in their entire lives. If you were a child, you made it through a hell that even adults with far greater cognitive and emotional maturity would have trouble dealing with. It does not matter how you did it, you survived.

You my friend, are awesome.

Mattheal,

You are going to be a great new addition to the MS family. You are our brother.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the site.

Welcome home, brother.
