Hi,

I just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Nick. I am a survivor of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. My story is posted in the story folder. I'm 26, and currently trying to start a nonprofit organization for male survivors where I live that would also offer group meetings for all incest and abuse survivors. I've been dealing with my abuse since I was 19, and still working on it. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask :) Thank you to everyone here for a very warm and compassionate welcome. I appreciate the support.

Nick

Welcome Nick

Good to have you here. Your project is much needed. My husband is a survivor of incest, emotional abuse and sexual abuse. While it is hard for women to deal with, I think it is just as hard, if not harder for men. I really admire you for what you are doing, :greet::greet::dance:

Hey everyone,

Thank you all for the great welcomes and all the support. I really appreciate it. I'm glad to be here. It looks like this will be a very supportive place to spend time. My webpage and everything should be up in a few weeks and then I'm :dance: I will let you guys know what's going on. In the meantime, it's been quite an experience "coming out of the closet" with this in my community. So far I've been met with a lot of support. I know it's not going to be all roses, but it's been good so far. :up:

Take care everyone,

Nick

Hi Nick,

Good luck with starting your local group. That's very admirable of you to do that (as well as anyone who starts an abuse survivor's group) and I wish you the best in that and here as well. :)

Hey Randy,

Writing it down can be a nice alternative to talking about it outloud...a way to get started in my opinion. Take your time though. I would say go slowly and make journal entries when you have memories, when you are preoccupied with the abuse, etc. If it does start to feel overwhelming, therapy is always a good option, if you're open to that.

There are a lot of very supportive people here, and you'll be ok here. It sounds like you're in the beginning stages of recovery. Try reading what's here and relating to others about it, see where that takes you. Post what you're comfortable with and go at your own pace. No one here is going to rush you.

Glad to meet you, welcome, and I hope that we're able to help.

Take care,

Nick :dance::woot::greet::blink:
