When Daniel was 8, his mom’s brother moved in. While his mom was at work, his uncle turned into a monster. Daniel says his darkest moment was when he finally got the courage to tell his mom. She didn’t believe him. She confronted the uncle about the abuse but this only made things worse.
Daniel buried his pain for a long time but he was overwhelmed by flashbacks and anxiety attacks. He called The James House, and started going to a support group with Jane Clayborne. Daniel says “I think if it hadn’t been for The James House I might be dead. Sharing my story and hearing the other guys tell their stories was the best thing that could have happened to me.”
