Touched me
by: Anonymous

Although I have not struggled with homosexuality I struggle every day with being inadequate. Your story touched me I was sexually abused at the age of 5...I am now 40 and am haunted every day with it. I couldn't imagine another human touching either of my daughters and because of the abuse I am the "over protective" Mom. And because of the abuse I have always thought of myself as unworthy and unloveable. The abuse has molded me into the woman I am today...I am a single parent struggling with an eating disorder and self image issues. NO child should ever have to endure what we have. God bless you, and thank you for allowing us to share our experiences...

I was not Born Gay: Let that give you inner strength and belief in yourself
by: maurice

As a single male of 63: Since my school days I too have struggled almost as idetically as you have: I was a nieve country boy away in this one sex school far from my single mother: Homsexuality was not a thing we talked about: Yet because of the all boy invironment they were naturally at least 6 of the senior boys who had orientations to being gay: At least three of them used me and many of the younger boys for there gratifcations from time to time: I too like you had such tendicies toward younger boys as I got older: As I got older I began testing my sexuality by having girl friends during my holidays at home: But I was always satisfied when I returned to school: Then when I left school I decided I was hetresexual but remained single all my life: I don't believe I was born Gay. Circumstances beyond one's control happens when as children/adolecents. We do things on impulse: You share very real and true feelings and message among many males and females who are married and have children: I am sure you have speoken with a counsellor from time to time which I would hope helped you to be so faithful and strong in your love and fanmily life: Don't pain yourself anymore: I am certain you know best and you realize you had a boy/boy relationship for a few years: Both of you were friends and testing each others understanding of what being homosexual is all about: You both grew up, separated to live your lives and make the best in life: I know of the six boys who had such tendecies in school five of them are happily married now: I sure still question myself, am I gay, my answer still is I am not: Am I bi-sexual The answer to this I am not: single and free: single and hetresexual in my living: a old batchelor I guess: G1 Always believe in yourself: There are many who have such fears and doubts from their past who are happily married: Leting go of our childhood experiences can take time: But let go we must: Let your loving family NOW be your peace of mind: G1 it is an empowering telling of your story for yourself and the many that will read it and move on in hope and love in their present lives: Learn from the past: Live for the NOW and life your life to the full in hope for the future: Thank you: Darlene gave a line for thought take heed of it:

I know how it is
by: Uriah

I was taught by my abuser that it was natural to be bi-sexual. After high school, I had sex with men, women, and trans genders. I finally found a women to love and we have two children. I have anxiety that someone will do to my children what was done to me. My anxiety is at its highest now and my depression has caused a strain on my marriage. The worst part is that my wife doesn't understand why I am so paranoid and distant even though I have told her that I was abused as a child.
