Statistics show that most boys and men do not come forward about abuse out of shame and fear. I was one of those statistics but after years of depression and attempts with suicide I decided it was time to tell my story. I hid my entire life to please my family and others around me out of fear that they would disown me and not accept me for me. I want to help others who suffer and show them that not only can they survive but I can help them with the steps they need to take to enjoy life again.
