Internal Bleeding

Ameture blogger and writer, I sought out a title to this article that would catch the attention. There's no phrase that does it justice. For many men, living with the facts of our childhood is difficult at best and terrible very often. There is no way to understand unless you have been there, and no action by a victim of abuse will ever make sense. So, we bleed in silence, keeping it to ourselves, and only let it out in whirlwinds of destruction and floods of inappropriate behavior. Don't ask us why, we won't know. There is a limited time frame for me to watch tv. Typically it happens while I am doing other things. Such was the case today as I set about to prepare some work meals. I flipped on the kitchen tv and there was Oprah....yeah, big surprise....speaking with Tyler Perry and an audience of 200 men who were all abused as children. It was not a pleasant show for me. But, it was a good show to watch. If nothing else, it tells me I'm not alone. If any of you need to talk, you have my address. I'm here. -randy
