I gave a shout out to tonight as I began Phase One (15 weeks) of a survivors group at The Gatehouse here in Toronto. The curriculum for lack of a better word, has improved a great deal since my first go-round with the organization about eight years ago (a ms member from back then referred me). I left tonight feeling optimistic and just happy to be with a bunch of guys who understood each here!

My abuse made even finding a me very challenging. I am now learning--one little step at a time--to find me, to respect me, and to commit to me. Congratulations Kenn on finding great support. I'm feeling I need some additional support, too, but haven't figured out yet what it is.

I'm happy for you.
