Something I noticed about
PC - guys that don't have it are so terrified of it that they don't want to talk about
it - they avoid the subject like the plague.
Something else I noticed - guys that have had it are very willing to talk to those that have recently found out that they have it. I think that they (we) are eager to "pay it forward" -- when I found out I had it, I talked to as many men as I could find (unfortunately, I wasn't aware of this forum yet). The great thing about
this forum is that you have a community of hundreds of men that can share their experiences.
I've decided to start posting here more, not only to hopefully help others with any tidbits of experience I might have, but because I think it just might be a part of the healing process. Thanks, forum, for clueing me in to that.
