15 year old, I was 8.
I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.

I'm sorry to hear about another male survivor was abused by a priest too. Did you get in touch with SNAP-Iowa? I tried to get help from the Chicago office, but I got more help from the Iowa office. I can get you the director's name if you would like it.

My ex brother in law when I was 11 until 12 for a period of seven months. It consisted of fondling, and he would pinch me. He forced me to touch him, as well. I told my family, and I never saw him again. My sister divorced him two years later. She remarried and has a 23 year old daughter. When she decided to remarry, I was pleasant yet distant to her second husband for obvious reasons.

An older boy at camp, a stranger who followed me around in his car, and a trusted and close friend in high school for the date rape that is my big issue.

My brother.

One thing this thread adds credence to is the myth of " stranger danger".

Most abuse is perpetrated by people we know / trust... n ot by random " lunatics" running around the streets. Nor are most perpetrators pedophiles. ( not discrediting or minimizing anybody abuse who suffered abuse by a stranger/ lunatic/ true pedophile)

My posts can self destruct at any them while you can.

Assistant scout leader at summer camp who drove in the tent pegs and tied me to them and 3 scouts who were egged on by him, then for the next 6 months by the 3 scouts on their own, with a brief interlude by one of my Mother's boyfriends
Go back?" he thought. "No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!" So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter
