My life changed forever when I was 15. I became a victim of sexual abuse. My fight through hell would begin at this point in my life and take me to where I am today, sharing my story. Sexual abuse doesn’t just go away. It will slowly eat you from the inside out if you try to pretend it never happened, and that’s exactly what it did to me. This came to a head one night for me -- I was either going to kill myself or tell someone. Here I am today. One of the hardest things I've ever done in my life was take the man to trial who did this to me, and put him behind bars. My motivation was to prevent this from happening to anyone else. Later, I would find out he had done this to others. I thought putting this man behind bars was my closure. I thought I would finally be able to get on with my life. Like I said, the Trama never goes away, you will deal with it one way or another. I would continue to learn this the hard way for many years. I joined the Navy at 20 and brought my issues into the Navy with me. I was angry, reckless, drinking a lot, depressed, full of anxiety, and thinking about suicide way too often. I hated myself. I got married at 22 and brought my issues into the marriage with me. Again, only dealing with my past every now and then. It nearly destroyed my marriage many times. Fast forward to present day. Thirty years later I am finally telling my story. I am finally putting myself out there. I retired from a successful 22 year career in the Navy in 2022 where I accomplished things I never thought were possible. My mission is to share my story with others in hopes that they don’t have to go through what I went through. There is a way out of this. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It is the hardest journey you will ever take, but it will be the most rewarding journey as well. This is the only way to get your life back. The only way to get through the feelings of shame, embarrassment, self-hate, depression, and constant thoughts of suicide, is to deal with your past head on. You cannot run from it, it will always catch up with you. I hope my story inspires others out there suffering in silence. I know and understand what you are going through and I’m here to show you there is a way out. I could not have done what I've done without the support of my wife of 21 years. I'm in the midst of creating something that is going to help others. I invite you to follow my journey as I share my story. I know what you're going through and you don't have to go through hell anymore. Stay positive and take action!🏃🏻‍♂️‍➡️
