hi everyone.......

i'm really nervous about posting, but i'm gonna do it anyway smile.gif.

my name is Ray and i was sexually abused by my stepfather from the ages of 5-16 *something like that anyway*.

my sis was also abused by him, sometimes he would abuse us together. my sister is a member of another message board and she says it has really helped her and suggested that i try and find one, so here i am. it seems really nice and friendly here:)

i deal with alot of issues. it is hard for me to get through the day sometimes, but i do have alot in my life that is positive. i've been married for three years to a wonderful woman smile.gif. we have a beautiful son (Mitch). he is two and a half tongue.gif.

well, i won't keep on going, ill post again later. i hope it is ok that i am here.??? thanks for reading my post.

Ray

Ray, your sister is right. These places are very soothing. I rarely post new topics but to just listen to others and feel less alone is incredible! I think it's great to just talk to people that really get it. And everyone here is very supportive. Stick around! (((((Ray)))))
