Tonight I told the most important person in my life for the last 28 years my secret. I told my wife what happened to me. Just the roughest outline. She knows. She understands. It's going to be okay. Thanks for helping me find the voice and the courage to do this. Dave

Way to go Dave! I think this disclosure is a huge step. I'll bet it feels like a weight has been lifted and that there was some very real healing done when you told her this secret that you held for so long. Kudos to you man! Peace,

I am glad for you. You have a good woman who stands by you. I can only imagine what that feels like and for you it is a major step in healing.

That is a huge leap forward! You have someone else in your corner now; do not underestimate how important that is. My wife has been a tremendous source of support. Sometimes she doesn't always understand why certain things bother me...but she's there just in case. May this be a part of your continued healing.
