  1. Welcome to the group and I hope you find support and strength here.
  2. Thanks to all of you for the great welcome! I already feel very much at home here and quickly realized what a great bunch of people that are hanging out here. Right now I am dealing the pure anger and revenge stage but not letting it eat me up. I have been seeing the counselor weekly for 3 1/2 months and plan to continue as long as needed.

At this time I am not sure if I am a survivor or still a victim. After four months of weekly counseling and heavy medication I still feel de-humanized, de-masculated and like a freak. My wife has been a source of incredible support and as a child rape survivor knows first hand what I am dealing with. As a guy I still cannot confide what happened to any of my male friends.
