  1. Welcome to the forum. Im also a male and been abused as a child so I can relate what you are talking about.
  2. Welcome to the forum. I hope you find this a supportive place. Just know you are not alone. I also struggle with loneliness and have problem emotionally connecting to other people.
  3. Welcome to the forum. Just take your time until you are to share with others. I can relate to what you are saying. Im also dont live in the US and things are really quite limited here. I also wanted to join a support group to meet with people like me in real but I really couldnt find any. Support groups here are very rare even in big cities. Lot of those support groups are focused on female survivors and males are not allowed to join. I managed to find one group but I could see from their website they stopped meeting since years. Most of the help here is focused on social services and the supp

    There is no reason for you to be ashamed. I feel pretty much the same way. All the sexual interaction I had were also really horrible. The only sexual act I feel safe with is masturbation so I do it a lot and sometimes it feels like its almost compulsive. I also struggle to reconcile my masturbation with my faith. I hope one day I will be able to enjoy my sexuality and I hope you do too. Dont give up and dont beat yourself up too much. You are not alone.
  5. I dont really know what to say besides I feel for you and am sorry you had to went through this. The realisation that my mother probably blamed and resented me for the abuse I had to go through was also so hard for me maybe even harder than the abuse itself. What I really learned is that its important not to focus on other people and ask myself why did she act this way. Its important to focus on myself and my needs. Sincerely hope you will feel better soon
  6. I was thinking for quite some while after I first read this thread what would tell you my abuser. After reflecting on it there really only one think I would say to him if I ever confront him. Why did you do it? An explanation is really the only think I want from him anymore. I would like to know what went through his head that made him think sexually abusing a child is a good idea. I somehow doubt though I will ever get a satisfying explanation for my question.
  7. Thank you all so much for your warm welcome. It may not seem much but it means so much to me.
  8. Hi all, I was sexually abused at a young age and am 33 now. I never really talked about anything that happened and how it affected me. So it took quite some time for me to decide to enter this forum and write something. I am not yet sure when and how much I want to share about myself; I just feel it really is time to step outside of the shadow and get in contact with someone who had similar experience than myself.
