  1. Hi, my name is Zach. I am eighteen years old. If I was eloquent, I would write here about who I am, how I feel, but I don't know if I can do that. Most of the time I don't know who I am or what I'm feeling. When I think of the word 'survivor', I think of people who have survived cancer, people who have lost family members and managed to carry on without them. A survivor dictionary defined is someone who continues to function or prosper in spite of opposition, hardship, or setbacks. Am I a survivor? It's hard to answer that question. I don't know if I am doing such a good job of surviving anymore. I barely function. I exist; I get on with things, to the everyday eye I continue on with life as any normal teenager would. Am I a survivor? Barely. Truth be told, I never really started living once I was abused, and in the years in which the abuse stopped. How can I ever truly face upto what happened? I am male, and I did not defend myself. I let people harm me in ways that can never be forgotten. A man dictionary defined displays manly character or courage, and I did not do that. I continue not to do that. Am I a man? Barely. If I was to answer truthfully why I was here, I would have to say that I am here because I want to feel I am not alone. I want to feel. I know that thousands of people all over the world are abused and what happened to me is not unique or singular, but I do not feel it. I wish to learn of other people's experiences, and to eventually relieve mine. I want to survive, in the true meaning of the word. I hope through here I can gain a little bit of that. Zach x
