I am 50, married and have struggles with same sex attraction. I've struggled for years and have had times of victory and freedom, but then other times of bondage and defeat. I have a difficult time as I am alone in this in that my wife does not know of my struggle, which limits what I can do as far as getting help. I've been turned off by those who say "you have to tell your wife" as no one else knows my situation or anything about my struggle, so I'm especially looking for someone who is sensitive to where I am right now in this.
Any encouragement and support would be appreciated, if you want to drop me a private message.
I hope I can also be a help and encouragement to anyone else here.
Welcome to the forums. I appreciate your honesty. I have a married friend with kids who has a similar struggle as yours so I understand where you're coming from. It's not easy to know who you can safely share your struggles with. Have you been walking this road alone all of your life?

Amymine712: Lock down is a trial run for communism...and I have fully decided I will never vote for anyone that would bring that into my country.

teetop: Well Amymine712, it has been years since I looked up some measures congress passed a very long time ago. President Kennedy just before he was assassinated in one of his very last speeches he warned the American People just about that type of power.

teetop: Kennedy warned the American people that there are certain circumstances where the President could declare a national disaster and put the whole country under martial law can under special circumstances become a Dictator.

savedbygrace: We are in a very unusual circumstance. Lockdown probably not the most accurate word. Both our state governors as well as the federal government have restricted behoviors that would have caused many more people to die.

teetop: Right-on savedbygrace, though we may not like it, it is true that many people ignore these simple safety measures.

Amymine712: Unfortunately some are taking their new found powers too far. Michigan's governor being one.

teetop: OK, what did Michigan's govenor do?

teetop: that though the death toll seems high, I would suggest you look at the numbers a little closer. Take note as to how many are dying with complications from something else. And secondly, the death toll is nowhere near the number incurred in 1918, [/b

Dominic: Yes, I am reminded that Jesus spoke of plagues in the end times. I think the COVID-19 meets that criteria.
