Hi Lenny

Welcome. I hope you find this place as healing as I have.

It seems we have a bit in common. I am 36 years old, I've been married for 13 years and have two children (a girl and a boy). I am an incest survivor as well.

Take your time to look around and don't feel pressured to share any details until you are ready. Recovery happens at our own pace.

Hope to see you around.

Lee

I'm 44 and posted for the first time today as well - right before you did. I have 4 daughters and have been married for 22 years. I hear this age is common for survivors to seek help.

Have you read much (in the forums)? Before I got a therapist the stuff in these forums scared me. Now that I've been doing hard work for a year this site is SO what I need right now.

Good luck with everything.

I have not read a lot yet. I've been to a couple of therapists over the last 10 years for anxiety and depression. I told them about the abuse. I still struggle with anxiety and depression and my wife and I are seeing a marriage therapist. The first three sessions have been about my issues. He knows about the abuse. I don't know if he is the right therapist for child sexual abuse. I have not gone to a therapist specifically for the abuse.

Welcome, Lenny! I'm a survivor as well and recently joined this site. I believe we chatted a bit already. Glad you are here and know that this place is a safe place to be open and real. At least that's been my experience so far.
