Hey bertG,

I'm sorry that you had to have such a welcome here to MS. This is very rare here but it shows how fragile people can be here. I hope you will heal well here and get involved you never know when you can save someone eles's life by posting about your healing or concerns.

A big welcome to MS, there are a lot of resources here that you can use to help heal yourself and others.

That message to you seems to be that last one from anyone on MS that I've heard of so far. But knowing Bryan I know that he ment you only good things on your road to healing.

Peace, Rainbows, Love & Healing
Jeff

Thanks Jeff iam feeling weird about that I was the last person he pmessaged . We where pmessaging are stories back and forth and he started respond with anger like he hated how he can't remember what happen to him! I tried to make him feel normal by ispirattional responds!!! I felt good after opening up to him... His last repond was about me telling him that my x girl friend broke up with. Me after opening up that I was abused as a child dumped me and called me gay or that I will become gay!! So his last respond was about that subject I will not quote what he responded for respect! But Bryan made me feel welcomed if I knew how serious he was I would of probably tried a lil harder I been feeling bad that he's last reponds was to me!!!

You can never know what is going through someone's head unless you can look into his eyes. It bothered him a lot about not knowing what happened to him as a kid. I know that everyone thinks the same as you that if you tried a little harder maybe you could save him. But you really don't know that he's going to take that step.

There is nothing wrong with being gay, straight, etc but there is something wrong if you can't be yourself. There are those people who will find some reason to spit on you.

It's a rough how do you do but that is the problem that we have here. Getting involved here is beneficial for all of us and most of all for you.

Glad to see you here but sorry you had to come in the first place.

Peace, Rainbows, Love & Healing
Jeff

Such a short flash of humanity. 29 years. And how many of those years were stolen from him by his abuser?

I'm so new here that I never had the chance to interact with Bryan but still I feel terrible about this. I think I'm just starting to understand that the word "survivor" means a lot.

Forgive777,

You weren't the only one Bryan was talking to on the night he passed. He was PM'ing with me as well, and like you, I feel a special burden knowing that I was with him on the night he died.

I wish I would have known. I have regrets about what I could have said to him to help him.

I take comfort knowing that Bryan was talking with his brothers here at MS in his final hours. We were his support, even as he slipped away.

Cant

I just read a post Bryan had written on the Classifieds forum:

http://www.malesurvivor.org/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=434337#Post434337

That would be a dream come true.


He had written it on May 11th...I was in Phoenix May 13th...

I had even written a post on the desire to meet someone in real life not long before...

I'm sorry Bryan...I'm so sorry I missed you...

Shit Bryan, I miss you so much. Why did you have to leave? Why couldn't you just hold on a little longer, so many people were trying to help. All we needed was a little more time.

At least you are now free from your demons. R.I.P. frown

Peace, Rainbows, Love & Healing
<3 XOXO
Jeff
