Before you read, if you are easily triggered , you may want to not read further, there is an account of sexual assault.
This is a forum for people to share these dark times and to be able to exress things that they have yet to speak about. This is a healing part of the process, to learn to feel safe to express some of our darkest experiences.
True Bravery is expressed in the words written in these posts. I cannot express the gratitude I feel for all who reads these encounters and all whom share them. I believe we are dissolving barriers, one experience shared at a time.
If you feel that you would like a part of your experience to be shared you can do So HERE
"My mind is racing with stories and where to begin.
The abuse I have faced is something I have hidden behind a smile for years.
I have had multiple head injuries. First thing that comes to mind as I focus my thoughts is one head injury I have never spoke about.
I was brutally raped by multiple men in a basement bathroom covered in mirrors. They drugged, raped, and beat me leaving me to die.
It’s all a blur as I have tried to suppress it for over 20 years.
It haunts me in night terrors. Too many mirrors give me anxiety.
The weight I just felt lifted as I typed this out was refreshing.
I have learned that you never know what someone has experienced to be so kind. This experience shaped my youth and life in more ways than I noticed at the time but as time passes lessons will be learned.
Thanks for giving me to place speak out and get this out of my soul as it was dragging me down more than I knew until I felt the weight lift.
Life truly is a gift and we are blessed to share it.
