    I was raped a year ago

    and I still can't stop thinking about it. I talk about it a lot more than it should and I definitely feel like it defines me as a person but I can't seem to think about it any other way. I worry I'll never have sex again and that no one will ever want to date with me and deal...

    multitude of males and now I am carrying someone's twin sons. I just cannot bring myself to having an abortion. I have decided to let a childless interracial couple adopt my sons. I have nightmares several times a week. Also, I cry quite frequently on weekends. I am going...

    Didn't Think It'd Ever Happen To Me.

    I was 15, I had only turned 15 a week before when it happened. It was Christmas Eve, about 2 in the morning. The unthinkable had happened to me. Something I thought would have never happened to me. About two or three weeks earlier, I got up at around 6am to get ready for school...

    when I was 12. I was at my kind of boyfriends house we were hanging out watching a movie like we did on most week ends. It was August 15th 2009. One minute we were watching a movie and the next minute he was on top of me and we were making out. He started touching me down there...

    I feel like no one wants me

    because of my rape. I mean what guy wants a girl whos been raped? None. I feel like I'm just a sex object, not even a person anymore. Who wants a girl who let her uncle do that to her? Will I ever be comfortable with a guy? Becuase of what happened I can never trust guys and I...

    Stop Telling Me How Easy It Is...

    People think that it is so easy to just report a rape, to tell your family or other people, and last but not least, to just forget and move on. Let me tell you a little something about that.. When a person rapes you, they slowly kill your soul I wasn't beaten or anything the...

    How do I tell her that this has happened?

    It's not like I've never told anybody before because I have. I've never said the word rape out loud before and it's still quite painful to type- when I last told somebody, I hinted to it and hoped that they realised what I meant. She already knows that I sometimes make myself...

    I think about it daily.

    It's one of them things that never go away. You can't forget it. You just have to learn to live with it. But I don't know how I can learn to live with it. It's awful. It controls me. It has literally ruined my life!

    The Right Thing- Doesn't Mean Your Weak

    I told my story "the story of how" but I believe it's time I tell about the second time, the time the will always haunt me. Not long after Aaron and Charlie raped me, Charlie said sorry and I forgave him. Just a short while later, I was walking, just out for a walk, when Aaron...

    My stepfather is everywhere. Ever since he was convicted of what he did to me a year ago, I can't get him out of my mind. He pleaded guilty and gave a sorry excuse of an apology, but he sure wasnt sorry when he was doing it. I feel even worse when I think about the fact that my...

    I was raped twice in one month,

    both by guys I considered friends and never would have thought would do it. I guess it wasn't technically rape, but i said no to both of them multiple times. At first it wasn't as serious, but then I started to get more serious about it. Until I finally just gave in. I'm a small...
