Allowing myself to feel, reaching out to you guys for help and advice, setting boundaries with people in my life (cutting out the abuser and now the unhealthy mother).

You're on your way man. Thanks for inspiring us with this post. We all need to pursue recovery like our lives depended on it. In fact our lives DO depend upon it. No stopping, no compromises. Keep it up csa survivor.

Seems I've got to have a change of scene
Every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to scream
