The simple fact that I'm not alone. That I'm not the only one thats thought......done........felt,_________ (fill in the blank). That in fact, the twisted, pointless, addicted, destructive way I've lived my life is really kind of "normal" for survivor's of boyhood sexual abuse.
AND the fact that others here have pointed the way for me to start to overcome these demons, and given me an opportunity to pass that on. There might as well be some good that comes from this train-wreck called my life.
Jude, you took the words right out of my mouth.
Before MS, I felt alone. Not just alone with what happened to me as a child and the life I've had because of it, but also just alone with nobody I could trust enough to even have a simple conversation with.
And posting in the forums, although it stresses me out every time I click "submit" I am comforted by the kind and understanding replies I get and knowing that someone out there will identify and hopefully get something out of what I post.
