I'm not that new, I've been reading for a while. I have a history of sexual abuse when I was 9-12. Anyway I have terrible depression, anxiety and other issues. I just graduated college and I'm trying to live on my own. I would like to have a relationship but I can't really have sex. Most people want it and when I tell them I have a history of abuse they just ditch me and think I'm weird. Anyway I hope to meet great people here.

Welcome bc,

I'm glad you have found reading posts here helpful. Actually posting about yourself was a big step, which is to be commended. Silence does not bring healing, but telling the truth about what happened can.

You are in good company here. We are men from all walks of life, all ages, all shapes and sizes, all orientations, and many countries. We all have this one experience in common that has affected our lives so much. Sex problems? Oh yes, lots of them. You are definitely not alone.

Look forward to hearing more from you.

"When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown, the dream is gone
And I have become comfortably numb."
Pink Floyd

Hey BC, good for you to take this step. You are brave. Took me 40 years to start to work on this. I have found much support and some healing and the courage to get some professional help. Wish you peace.
