I have been desperatly looking for a group in the Nashville Tenn area that would allow a middle age male survivor of childhood sexual abuse participate. Extremly limited resources in the mid-Tn area, and have been unable to even find a suitable counselor who actually facilitates male sexual abuse let alone an outreach such as a therapy group that focuses on PTSD or sexual abuse, an AFFORDABLE workshop or etc. Reliable transportation is available and will consider traveling up to 100 mi or 2 hrs weekly, if necessary.
It is such a relief just to find this site, and I have already responded to the administrators here and have rec'd useful potential leads. I also intend to respond to posts of other members, as soon as I become more familiar with this site.
Thanx for any info; Tom S.

Tom, it is great you have found us. I am fairly new here as well but this place has already changed my life! It is so hard to find places geared towards male survivors of sexual abuse... even on the internet, where supposedly you can find anything. I am not ready to talk about the abuse in real life yet so I rely on internet groups. For the most part I was shunned from female-oriented groups, and the male-oriented ones I did find were very inactive... so it was great to find this place. I hope you will like it here. Come to the chatroom some time and meet the guys there! \:\)

Tom, go to http://www.malesurvivor.org and then look at the links on the very left. There should be one that says "chat room." Click on that. Then you have to register a name for the chatroom, and then you can log on and chat. \:\)

Alright, I see the chat page, but I do not see how to log on.

Ok, when you see the chat applet, click on the button in the chat that says "register." Register a name and password, and then go back to the chat and type the name and password in the name/password boxes and click login.

Well, I gave it my best try. I can see HOME, ABOUT US, NEWS and EVENTS, etc across the top and then a place lower on the page 'tell us' where you can contact the administrator if you are bothered. These are the only spots I can access, and for the life of me, I do not see any palce to register.
Sorry, I would like to chat. There are some member areas I can not access as well. I think because I am new, I must not have high enough clearance or something.
Thanx anyway; Tom S.

There is a large area blank on that page between top and bottom, and I simply cannot find any buttons etc to register/login etc. They just do not appear. I am told this computer does not Java support or something of that nature. There have been other things that would not appear for me in the past.
I need to run for now, but I look foward to writing in here to you again. Not many people willing to take time for me.Thanx for your efforts!!
Tom S.

Ahh... ok. Yeah, you need Java enabled to be able to run the chat room. There is maybe an option somewhere in your internet config to enable Java but I don't know what type of computer or browser you are using so I can't be more specific.
