Thank you so much everyone.
Very perceptive bellbird. I have been under massive amounts of stress this week and have been working tons of overtime. When something gives, it's usually my emotional health.I recognise this type of thinking as the kind that pops up when you're going through a difficult patch,
Pandys men's forum is now populated solely by sadly chirping crickets. (No DV/SA survivors there, either.) But in the few weeks since MaleSurvivor revamped and returned, there's been an explosion of activity there (looks like Michael Jackson has accomplished something good after all), and even though all those guys are CSA survivors they've been pretty welcoming to a lone ASA survivor.Pandy's used to have quite an active men section, it was confidences based though for entrance. (Or, both confidences and requesting entry).
I have to remember there never will be here, either, until men speak up in large numbers. Even if none of them have been through SA, it's still worthwhile to speak up as a male DV survivor because there are still a few organizations here who want to make sure men don't have access to resources or services. (I'm usually not that blunt about it because it makes me sound like an MRA or misogynist, but it's true. And I'm still not an MRA or a misogynist.)There was no "Men's Refuge" down the street to help any man in an analogous situation to my own.
