    I denied it vehemently

    Lost Soul All Alone

    I don't know what to say other then how badly she wanted me at first. How the countless times I refused to be her boyfriend just for this very fear to be real. A nightmare I refused to relive in pain and suffering. Her name was Cassandra and she fell hard for a guy with a natural...

    I've been Abused Physically

    but I'd have to say, Emotional and Mental Abuse is the worse. The Physical pain stopped after while when he was done for the night but it was the Emotional and Mental pain that never did.

    By Whom Not!

    I've been abused by alot of peers emotionally.  Molested by a peer.  Traumatized by the world.  And harrased (not sexually) by some of my old jobs.  I don't know how to survive anymore.  I feel emotionally and physically drained.
