Welcome @RustyForgetful to After Silence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.  Take your time exploring and post when you are ready.  If you have any questions feel free to message me.  Also, you mention you are male, we have a Male Survivors forum if you would be more comfortable talking to someone there but you are free to post wherever the topic fits.  The Male Survivors forum is under Survivor Connections.
