    Abby, I used to worry what to say in the beginning and now I feel like I could spend hours with my therapist each week. Besides, at the start of each session my therapist asks me, "What on your mind?" and that is my cue. Each time I go to my session now, I have a list. Sometimes the list is in order of importance and sometimes it's not. A list helps me to stay focused so I feel like I get my monies worth. I have paid for a couple of sessions that were not productive, but not now. Chuck

    Hey Devon, Welcome. I want you to know I'm happy for you that you want to start your journey. If you haven't noticed yet, there is a great deal of support here. I am just beginning to growup myself and I'm about 12 years older than you, so don't feel like you've missed the boat. Chuck

    Hello, I am a 50 year old man who with the help of going to a therapist (originally for relationship concerns) for a couple of months now have discovered I was sexually abuse, physically abuse, and psychologically abused as a child. I was abused by my parents (physical and psychological) and adults who took advantage of young children (sexually). I have no feelings, I'm just numb. My therapist said my parents abandoned me and whenever someone showed an interest in me (because I was abandoned by my parents) I was their prey. So far I have remembered several episodes from my past and I still have a huge block of time I can't account for. At this point it's not a priority for me to be concerned about finding out what happened during that time period. I have told a couple of people besides my therapist about the abuse and I know I should feel better after telling my story but I don't because I'm still numb. I glad there is this website because I feel I could spend at least two hours a week with my therapist instead of an hour. My time with her goes by so fast. Chuck
