Hey Votect

I am truly sorry for what happened to you to bring you here but glad you found us. Hopefully over time we will not be strangers anymore.

You are showing great bravery and courage by tackling this head on the way you are....talking charge.....getting yourself out of an abusive relationship. It is great that you have been able to recognise that you DO deserve better. You did then and you do now.

Over the last few months I have been trying to get my head around the same concept .... that there are two sides of me that are equally valid. For so long I assumed the great, happy, successful guy that everyone saw was the fake me and the piece of poo I thought I was, was the real me. My T has talked about feeding which side I want to grow as well.

And by the way I like Math too (I was in the top 5% of Australia in high school) and I like geeky things like transformers and starwars.

So welcome to the site. Take your time to look around and read the posts. You are off to a great start and keep sharing as you feel comfortable.

Lee

Welcome Votecthulhu!

Yeah, many of us get that.....I do for sure. There always had to be an outward "perfect" me to counter the inner "bad" me that I tried to keep hidden. For me, however, that was never helpful. So much energy was expended keeping my secrets. So much abuse of drugs and alcohol to try to hold it all together. I just couldn't so it anymore.

So anyway, I'm glad you are here. You can get as much or as little out of MS as you want. Many guys just read posts and nothing more. Others, post regularly and find it a safe and non-judgemental place to get things off their chests. Just take it easy and find your own way around.

You are one of an increasing number of younger men here who have found the courage to face their childhood sexual abuse and the effects it has had. I wish that I had had that strength and courage at 22. I kept my secrets for 42 years. Not a good plan!

Be well and stay in touch!

Jude
