Hi All,

I am 49 years old CSA [/b]survivor[b]. I was molested by my grandfather when I was about 3 years old. I have a memory like Swiss cheese (full of holes) but do know who my abuser was but do not know how much, how long, or any other details.

I have a wonderful wife who is traveling this journey to healing and wholeness with me. In my low times she is my shield maiden. In life she is my partner.

My journey has many elements to it and I am amazed how it all works together.

Thanks for allowing me the privilege of being part of this group.

wow.
that is terrible to hear what happened to you.
congratulations on taking this step toward better health.
looking forward to learning more about you.
slowly, things get better.
this has been my experience.
self awareness, honesty, and emotional support are key ingredients.
you sound as if you are more than ready for recovery.

welcome, Matt195.

Thanks guys!

I have been on this journey of healing for about 6 years now. The realization of who victimized me was about 5 years ago. I have been able to move forward in this journey through my faith and with counseling.
