  3. Hey Randy, Writing it down can be a nice alternative to talking about it outloud...a way to get started in my opinion. Take your time though.

You're in college, you know the math....you're doing a great thing. Take care and keep in mind that you are unique and 'special.' Nice to meet you, Nick
  5. Hey everyone, Thank you all for the great welcomes and all the support. I really appreciate it. I'm glad to be here. It looks like this will be a very supportive place to spend time. My webpage and everything should be up in a few weeks and then I'm I will let you guys know what's going on. In the meantime, it's been quite an experience "coming out of the closet" with this in my community. So far I've been met with a lot of support. I know it's not going to be all roses, but it's been good so far. Take care everyone, Nick
  6. Hi, I just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Nick. I am a survivor of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. My story is posted in the story folder. I'm 26, and currently trying to start a nonprofit organization for male survivors where I live that would also offer group meetings for all incest and abuse survivors. I've been dealing with my abuse since I was 19, and still working on it. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask Thank you to everyone here for a very warm and compassionate welcome. I appreciate the support. Nick
