Umm, Hi

Recommended Posts

So hi, My name is mike, this is really new to me. I don't really know what to say. :533:

I am a male survivor os sexual abuse, I have been through much therapy but recently I have been having a tough time dealing with what happened to me. I feel so alone, It seems like there are no other guys out there who have been through what I have. I just feel empty inside, walking around like nobody really understands me...

I think for now Im just gonna leave it at that for now.

Just wanted to say hi to everyone...

??? :unsure:

Welcome to After Silence, Mike :)

As the others have said, we do have many wonderful male survivors here. I hope that you will feel comfortable here and will get out of this place what you want and need. It is a very supportive and non-judgmental community.

Thanks for the warm welcom everyone! Its good to be heard, and more so, understood. It seems I have found an amazing group of people. I look forward to sharing my thoughts here. I have been holding things in for far too long.

The fact that I was welcomed so greatfully with my introduction lets me know that I am not alone. And that's what I need right now.

It's still slightly weird for me tho for the simple fact that the only people that know my real story are my mom, and my sister. For the simple fact that they were with me every step of the trial to put my dad in jail.

I want someone else to know what happened to me, I just want someone to know. I think I'll get that here.

Again, Thank you :blush:

Totally okay to feel awkward... I am a women and I feel awkward and alone a lot. I think this is a good sight to be on. Helps you feel not so alone. Just keep posting and you will find others you can share with.
