Sleepy: Dont let the scar on your shoulder bother you. It is there for everyone to see and only you know how you got it. Think of it this way. This is the only scar I want to carry. The one I and others can see. The rest can all go in the garbage where they belong.

Sleepy,

That's some great advice from Mike. Let me encourage you to take it to heart.

It's good advice for me, too. I think I will take it to heart as well. Thanks, Mike.

Sincerely, Jess.

Know what you mean about body swings. Since my last bout with prostitution in 95 I havent exercised or seen a dentist. now I have to get my teeth fixed and take antibiotics. I'm toning up with Isometrics but the more fit I get the more I hate myself.

Edwin: Dont feel that way. That is their brainwashing and fucking attempt to keep you down. Do it for yourself bro. And hang on tight. It is amazing was a little self respect can do. It is like an infectious disease

Ed'
just do it for YOURSELF, feel good about it. Look upon it as getting what they denied you.

You deserve to feel good.

Mike,
That was a great bit of advice. I really appreciate it! So into the garbage they all go!

Mike,your post really has inspired me,as I too have begun an exercise program again.I did a half-marathon in October,and finished with a good race time,considering my age. I haven't run much since disclosing my abuse,but I am going to run even longer distances,and more often.Good stuff for venting emotions and anger etc. Thanks again for your words of hope!

Dave: I really miss donuts but when I read tha amount of calories in them I damned near fainted. But I will admit they do taste great. Especially sour cream donuts
