At times when I read the forum I get sad for the collective pain we all have to endure to recover fully. I see new names here and I wonder how is it so many of us could have been hurt as kids. I literally pray at night there be no new survivors.

But I believe in recovery though I know it's hard.

I know there is a silent # of us healing and thriving too. Some of those silent members are very close friends to me now. They are doing really good but yeah, with speed bumps along the way. Its part of the proces, but climb higher after each bump.

Peer support can be so awesome. Please find someone here who will be with you on good ones and tough ones too.

Gents, please stay strong and please believe it can get better. No matter what your burden is today realize courage sometimes is saying I will try again tomorrow.

Be well all.
