I'm a 50 something year old man in England. 

My whole life has been driven by what happened to me as a child. My life style, joining the army, my work with kids. Even the character I invented as a comic. All driven by abuse.

Oh, and I've never done something like this before ever. So please bear with me

Hello there, @Silence Is Golden - welcome to After Silence!  I am sending greetings from across the pond!  (I'm American born and bred - but England is definitely a place I'd love to someday visit.)

I am so sorry to hear that so many abuses have piloted your life - but am glad to see that you are taking steps at manning the controls and perhaps being here will help you to take huge strides toward healing!  This is truly a wonderful community and I am sure you will find that you are not alone by any means.  

Happy healing!

Best wishes,

Hello, Silence is Golden. Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for the trauma that happened to you. I had not really been a part of a board like this when I joined. Take you time to read and feel free to reply or post when it feels safe to you. Be gentle with you.

Welcome to AS, silence is golden, abuse from when you were a child can be very pervasive. It takes a lot of courage to join and post. This is a supportive, understanding and non judgemental community. Take your time looking around and post when you feel safe and ready.
