I am a 52 year old male. The first time I slept outside it was terrifying. I was 16 and left home because I thought I 'knew everything' and could handle it on my own. The things that have contributed the most to my difficulties are that at a young age (10). Having sex with my father. I should say he was having sex with me. What makes me happy is being in love and sharing life with one other person. Right now nothing seems to be going well. I try to remain positive though. I would like others to pray for my happiness and love of another with man. I would rate my happiness as a 3. I have some hope.
