How are we doing?
I came to Fort late in life, and have found everyone to be so very kind and understanding. Time and again I find myself reading someone else's experience and finding it relates to things I have been through or thought was only me being crazy.
I think the most profound thing about being here is the eagerness I have gathered to work through my issues, finding ways to do this and sharing sometimes, idea's.
Fort is a place where I can be comfortable admitting when things are really bothering me. I don't need my 'ok' mask here. Even when I've said things that didn't make sense to others, no one has ever made me feel 'wrong' or 'damaged', just asked for clarification.
It is great that this information is here I have been searching a long time to find any help for male victims I suffered greatly as a child and now I know where I can find help so thank you.
Very very helpful. Many thanks
both of my parents have treated me as their spouse since i was born. it has caused so many problems for me. i tend to have a hard time finding a line between uninvolved and overly intense when it comes to relationships. im glad this site is here, it helps to know there is a name for this.
I came to the Fort with no experience of on-line communities...and more than a little trepidation. I was surprised how quickly I felt at home...felt that I belonged.
This site has been immensely helpful to me, not to mention validating.
This site has been so helpful to me. I can't express how thankful I am to have support from everybody on this site. Words don't seem to do this site justice.
It's nice to see courageous, brave people making it and sharing ideas with others. It just feels so cool that people from all over the world can come here and join together and help each other. It's a hard road but I'm no longer alone. Thank you for this place.
This site helped me to understand myself better
The other day was the first in 7 years that I SI and I was feeling very ashamed about it. I posted a thread wanting to talk about how I was feeling and some of you welcomed me with no bias to I was and why I am an SI. Thank you for your support and open arms.
