I was sexually abused as a young child , by 2 different older man. I for years blamed myself, In the back of my mind I still do. Oh by the way I was about 5 . No I do not have same sex feeling, but in my life it affect me in so many ways. I was lucky ,that 35 years ago I married a great loving understanding man. You name the mental problems I have it , o.k not all of them ,but a few. My parents didn't believe me at 9 when I told them. So the guilt and blaming myself was so bad. I don't think all that was abused as a kid ,turns to same sex. But I can see that happening. God bless you and stand strong.

Erik, your spirit has such innocence and light that it's easy to see how beloved you are of God, and how blessed you are for having reached to our Savior, Jesus Christ. I too have loved those addiction recovery meetings through LDS Family Services, and served as a missionary there for several years. You are courageous. Thank you for being willing to dig deep to share your heart and your testimony of the goodness of God's everlasting love. His love never fails. Blessed be, dear Erik.

Yay! Erik, I didn't know you were going to do one of these videos, but way to go. It takes so much bravery to expose ones inner feelings and shortcomings, and I am just so honored that you would share your story with everyone. You're awesome. Everyone, I have gone to his meetings. He is a great facilitator! If you're struggling and afraid, go to his meetings😊 Thank you for being open and not being scared to have mortal failures...Heaven is not full of perfect people but of imperfect people who continually strive for perfection!!!
