Review for MaleSurvivor: National Organization Against Male Sexual Victimization, New York, NY, USA
I am a survivor of childhood sex abuse beginning at age 5 until age 7. It was in the late fifties when something like that was not on too many peoples' radar. Certainly not mine. I come to MaleSurvivor for the comraderie and the understanding I need. I have an great therapist and my family tries to be as understanding as possible should I bring any of it up to them (wife of 38 years and 3 great adult children). MaleSurvivor is my go-to nearly daily for the support, the I've-been-there-too compassion and wisdom that I don't receive anywhere else. It has been a lifeline. For nearly 50 years I never told anyone - no one. My wife had no idea (but she thought there as something ). After summoning up the courage to make that first call and begin my therapy sessions I began to see that I'm not so alone. That's when my therapist told me about MaleSuvivor. I looked into it and the rest is history, so to speak. I am not alone. It wasn't my fault. I did nothing wrong. I need to hear that daily and that's why MaleSurvivor is so important.
