  1. @markeslilja I'm so happy I stumbled on this organization, that you contacted them immediately, and they are making you feel hopeful. I hope the success of this organization will finally lead to more organizations being created to help male survivors as there is definitely a need for them.
  2. That's great. I expect they are. I hope the meeting goes well and continuing to attend them will provide support to you.

  4. I just came across an organization that offers services to male survivors and I thought some AS members might be interested in it. https://1in6.org/about-1in6/
  5. I just came across this foundation, which offers online services to people who have CPTSD. They offer daily calls, a weekly book club, a weekly creative group, a free Facebook based support group, etc. Their services are designed to be affordable and they have scholarship fund so they can provide services for free to people who can't afford to pay.

  9. Blue Fandom, welcome to AS. I agree with what everyone has already said, but I also want to say something else. Going to someone's house is not consent to sex. You told him clearly that you did not want to have sex, but he pressured you until you finally agreed to let him give you oral. Now think about this: If he really wanted to have sex, then why would he pressure you to let him give you oral instead of pressuring you to give him oral? Because he wanted so badly to give you pleasure? No, he pressured you to let him give you oral because he intended to start that way and then move to i
  10. Welcome SignIn, I am also older and dealing with abuse from a long time ago, but not because I blocked it out. I note that you have a tag that says that you have two teenagers. The fact that you have children who are approaching the age that you were when you were raped might have something to do with why it is coming up now. Just something for you to think about.
  11. Lostwoman, AS is a good and safe place where you can find support at all hours of the day and night, but I think more people are around during day time or evening in the US. I encourage you to spend some time here just to experience having the support and understanding of other people who know what you are going through. I think you will find it very helpful. If you find that you are not able to get the support that you need precisely when you need it here, then I suggest that you contact RAINN (www.rainn.org) at the times when you feel like you can't handle the pain alone.
