I Survived Rape

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 165 People

    Today was a big day for moving on

    and growing emotionally. Probably the first time I've engaged in sexual activity with my boyfriend in months since I was raped. Even the thought of kissing anybody would upset me. I remember, I tried to be strong for him, and do things with him, even though he told me not to...

    I'm at a point in my life

    where I would say I am surviving rape. I do not feel like I am past any of it. I still feel unsafe. I feel like it just happened like a week ago rather than 2 years ago. I sometimes even forget it happened to me. I feel like it happened to someone who is really really close to...

    He was my boyfriend at the time,

    I suppose he thought because of that he had the right to, but he didn't did he? I was 16 when he did it, 2 years ago, it's a long time ago but when I close my eyes I can still feel it, still smell him, am I crazy? I've spoke to people about it, try and recover but I don't...

    I survived rape. No, it wasn't my fault.

    It is no victim's fault. No one chooses to be raped. No one chooses to be victimized. We were hurt by perpetrator's. Rape is the rapist's doing. To all victim's who were blamed, questioned, threatened, etc... it was NOT your fault. You are strong. The rapist is weak. No matter...

    I am terrified of everything.

    I can cry at a drop of a hat, especially when rape is brought up. I hate it, but I can't control it. I NEED to control it! I have been raped, sexually assaulted since I was four years old until I was eighteen. And the abuser was my older brother. I can remember every detail...

    When I was 12 I was raped by my Aunt's

    boyfriend. He did lots of digesting things to me and even forced his **** in me even though it hurt so bad. I keep getting nightmares about it and it hurts me so much. I would wake up and throw up and feel so disgusted and sick. I hate this so much.. I wish it never happened...

    I was in Minneapolis

    for the night as my flight was leaving the next morning for Fort Jackson, South Carolina. I decided to walk to the gas station and take in the sights along the way. On my way there I was stopped by a man who had gotten out of his car and started waving me over saying a name. I...

    I can't sleep. I can't eat

    or drink. And I don't care if I die. I can't live with the abuses, the flashbacks, dying inside every day. Wondering why? whirlwind envelopes me, roughly, so unkind, bleeding soul. We live in a very cruel world. I want to be in the clouds :)

    I don't know if I will ever get over the rapes.

    I dont know if I will ever stop blaming them or myself. I don't know if I will ever be able to freely live my life. I don't know if I will let myself.

    This is really hard for me to tell you all.

    I don't trust people, so I guess this seemed easier then trying to talk to someone that I actually know. I was raped and molested by my dad. I was for years. When I was about five years old one of my dads co-workers paid my dad to let him rape and touch me; and my older sister...

    Loving Sibling...right.

    As if it hadn't been enough. After I lost my virginity at the age of twelve by my stepfather, I became a brutalized victim of a person I never thought would harm me. I mean seriously, how f***ed up could my household have gotten. I can't even begin to understand, I'll never get...

    I Did But.....

    I survived rape. Rape from the ages of 4 - 12. I live a normal full life. I work full time, I am not on meds, counselling didn't really help. I just get on with it. I survived it. Why can't the people I love survive it too. They don't have to live with this thing. I do. And I...

    I was brought into a taxi

    and off to this guy's house. I didn't expect anything of it, the taxi thing was a bit strange since there was nothing wrong with hanging out at the mall, and he seemed like a nice guy, we were talking for a little while before hand. We arrive at his house and things are normal...
