DAVID

David Lisak’s moving and poignant personal story of healing and speaking out about his own childhood sexual abuse, is an inspiring account of the ability to reclaim life and thrive after the devastating effects of abuse. David is also a leading clinical psychologist and noted authority on the long term impact of child sexual abuse on men, including the cycle of violence. His work is a serious call-to-action for communities to participate in helping boys and men break silence about childhood sexual abuse, and to provide much needed resources, services and support in order to participate in helping men heal and lead healthy lives. David’s honesty about his own abuse both as a professional and a survivor, the effects the abuse had on his life, and his commitment to heal and speak out, is a humble witness to his courage, as he lights the way for other men to begin their healing journey. http://bigvoicepictures.com/production-3/boys-and-men-healing/

I just confronted my dad about his abuse of me and my mom...he filed a restraining order...because that's what you do when a son tells you he still loves you and just wants an honest apology...but hey, #FridayFeeling !!!  also... #childabuse #NeverBeLikeYou :)
I call this a win. I just beat up my childhood monster (figuratively) and he started to cry and scream unfair...

That is a gaslighting tactic. Some abusers beat themselves up and then call the cops and tell them that their partner beat them up.
You can't put anything past them.

I know I try to be honest and tell my story. I don't think a lot people consider the idea of men and boys being raped as well. So I wanted to help you share your stories too. Boys to men healing.

Does anyone know if and how long you have to file a civil case against your abuser or reopen a case after the victim is of age and feels not only the family let them down the city where it happened let the ABUSER get away with it? Any help an info would be BEYOND gratefully appreciated. I recently went and got most copies of hell I went through as a child and I was just 10yrs when it went to the courts. Not happy with what I found out and am hopefully looking to get justice once an for all. I feel my abuser MY FATHER got away with it. With the help of my yet so awesome mother ( NOT ) and the city didn't do shit as well. I'm trying to get the closure I need and deserve. Thank you

5 Simple keys to Managing Stress.

The effects/side effects/after effects of sexual abuse are numerous, we know that, even if we have never experienced abuse of this nature or studied it out, we can at least give mental assent to or acknowledge that it would have a profound impact. Carol Boulaware summaries the Major Long-Term Psychological Symptoms of Sexual Abuse as:

Anxiety
Panic Attacks
Low self-esteem
Stress disorders - PTSD
Personality disorders
Substance abuse
Self-abuse behaviors

Not trying to be over simplistic, but we can summaries that in one word. STRESS.

I once heard Dr John King define stress as:

Supposed
Threats to
Relationship
Enjoyment
Security
Stability

I recently read an article by the American Psychological Association, that I found very helpful, primarily due to the simplicity, it was entitled: Five Tips to Help Manage Stress

The article starts by stating:

Stress occurs when you perceive that demands placed on you — such as work, school or relationships — exceed your ability to cope. Some stress can be beneficial at times, producing a boost that provides the drive and energy to help people get through situations like exams or work deadlines. However, an extreme amount of stress can have health consequences, affecting the immune, cardiovascular and neuroendocrine and central nervous systems, and take a severe emotional toll.

It goes on and gives what the APA calls'healthy techniques'to help reduce stress in the short and long term:

TAKE a break from the stressor.It may seem difficult to move away from a big work project, a crying baby or a growing credit card bill.
EXERCISE. The research keeps growing — exercise benefits your mind just as well as your body. We keep hearing about the long-term benefits of a regular exercise routine.
SMILE AND LAUGH.Our brains are interconnected with our emotions and facial expressions. When people are stressed, they often hold plenty of the stress in their face. So laughs or smiles can help relieve some of that tension and improve the situation.
GET SOCIAL SUPPORT. Call a friend, send an email. When you share your concerns or feelings with another person, it does help relieve stress.
MEDITATE. Meditation and mindful prayer help the mind and body to relax and focus. Mindfulness can help people see new perspectives, develop self-compassion and forgiveness. When practicing a form of mindfulness, people can release emotions that may have been causing the body physical stress. Much like exercise, research has shown that even meditating briefly can reap immediate benefits.
I encourage you to read the full article on the website.

I'm a survivor of child sex trafficking. The abuse ruined my back and left me physically disabled. I recently got married for the first time at 45, and it feels like a miracle. We both wrote toasts to each other in which we talked about the abuse. My husband says I'm a superhero! Here are our toasts, and the photos too!
