Hello everyone,

 My name is Darren, I am 42 from Australia and I have a history of sexual abuse from when I was 8 and 9 years old. An excellent therapist has put me in a good place generally but I feel the need to talk to others who have experienced similar to what I have experienced, as there are no real-life groups in my city. I hope to get to know more of you in here soon. Thankyou for your time,

 

Darren

Hi, Darren. You are welcome here. I too was sexually abused at age 9. So, I know what a vulnerable time that is and how being abused at that age can leave a lasting mark. I'm glad that you found us and have a supportive therapist.

Hi Darren,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry that you have suffered abuse, but you have found a very supportive site. I'm sorry that there aren't any groups that you can attend in real life, but you will find understanding members here. I wish you well as you journey on your healing path.

Welcome to AS. You are not alone in your struggles and you can heal. We will all be here to help you along your healing journey. :) 

I am a male survivor. I'm guessing from your name and your pick you are too? I was only 5 and my abuser was 15. He didn't hurt me when it happened and for a decade while I kept it a secret I questioned my sexuality. It was a confusing time for me mixed with other family issues and problems at school.
