I'm 57yr old. I was a victim of incest from the age of 8-13, raped by roommate at 18 while in the AF. and molested by my Dr. at age 27.

Welcome to MaleSurvivor where we're glad you found us, but saddened you needed to.

I'm so sorry for the multiple episodes of abuse you've experienced and for the impact it's had on your life. Remember to take some slow deep breaths and share what you are comfortable with at your own pace.

I hope this place, and we fellow survivors, can be a part of your healing journey.

Everybody's been through their own hell
There's nothing too special about getting hurt
Getting over it, that takes the work

Welcome Greg,

Lots of us middle-agers here finally dealing with it. You're not alone. Glad you're in therapy. It can help alot. So can MS. Take what works for you and leave the rest.

Seems I've got to have a change of scene
Every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to scream

Several similarities in our stories, Greg, as well as our birth year.

Glad you found MS; you're in safe and good company here.
