About me

I am Ed I am in my forties. I am beginning to find out who I am. I love cooking and baking. I am also a West Ham fan for my sins.

The last year or so has been really tough as I come to terms with my past. I am trying to see past what happened. I’m now working for a large insurance firm. I am a member of an AmDram group.

I’m more than just words.

    I just wanted to say your very brave blogging about your abuse and associated feelings. Disclosing abuse is very difficult for anyone and so doing it in such a public way takes courage. I do feel for men as it seems there is lack of support for them. I myself am a survivor as is my brother. We been treated a world apart even though we suffered the same. You are breaking this taboo topic and by breaking the silence may help and encourage others to come fwd. Your very courageous.

    It seems that this year has been tough but you have made some huge successes and achievements. Getting your own flat and living independently is brilliant. You are capable of doing so much in your life. Your abusers haven’t destroyed you. Survivors are the strongest and most resilient amongst society!

    I have set up a petition to try and get more support for men. I was wondering if you would be kind enough to link my petition to your blog so more people get to see it. I need 100,000 signatures!!! If you can promote the petition I would be grateful. It is http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/55331

    Keep up the blogging.
