It's put out by the above organisation. I'll post more when I can find where to get the actual book. I found it in the abuse section of the local library.

I don't like showing affection (holding hands / kissing)to my wife or anyone else in "public", it's all about not wanting to draw attention to myself. I still have it after many years, I guess I'm still that scared little boy in some ways.

As a kid I'd hide right in plain sight, never wanted attention or close scrutney, I felt that if anyone ever looked too close, they'd see the shame in me.

I'd say don't take it personally, but I know it affects you personally, sorry...

Who wouldnt be shallow, when you have to think 24/7 abuse from being a kid!
We need to get things straight, a survivor takes a whole load to just trust somebody.
You know why? Because most of us have chosen the wrong ppl to trust.
We think that if we let everything go on one partner, they may leave, and then its start again.
Sometimes you just say, give up, dont even try, this girl is just going to dump the garbage she has found.
Some of the greatest men and boys, even women, have passed through these forums with so many problems, but shallow? NO!
When it is a massive problem, we dont like to saddle it on anybody but ourselves.

Skip the shallow for deep, and you get the picture,


Whoever stole the Sun, put it back and we'll drop all the charges!
