I Have Survived Brutal Rape. Ask Me Anything

CB's were popular in the '70's..........I had a flat from a tire that was put on with a pneumatic tool and I could not loosen the nuts, so I got on the cb and asked for help.
Help arrived, when I showed him where I left the tire iron, I turned around....................
I came to tied up between a few trees, sitting  with legs on two trees, arms on two small trees and a ropes everywhere, one around my neck that tightened if I moved too much. I had blood trickling down the right side of my face from where he hit me.
I was there for 5 days and 4 nights. Once I tried to get away he raped me with a stick and beat me.
The 5th day he didn't return, he left my car, keys and purse,but no clothes...........and I laughed because he didn't even change the tire! But I did then, went to the cops (5' tall, 105 lbs 36-24-32) and the cops said I probably enjoyed it, I slipped out and never returned.
I survived.
How? My sense of humour, I thought it was funny, that with all the sex he stole, he still didn't change my tire and I had to wear the floor mat.........
You can survive anything

I'm so sorry you went through that. How did you bear through it at first? I experience sexual abuse as a child and it still shakes me up today...

Im really sorry that happened to you, i can tell you are a very strong person! Do you hate those cops? Did you go to the hospital? Do you hate all men now? Were you able to have a relationship ever?

No don't hate the cops.
No, didn't go to the hospital, afraid it would be a repeat of the cops.
I love men. Shortly after I married.

how do you feel about people with rape fantasys

To each their own.
Most who have survived a horror, do not fantasize about it.

WOW, so the cops did absolutely nothing for you? I can't believe that..

Nowadays this would not happen, from the 70's back, it did quite often...

Wow! That was a horrible experience and you survived it. You have my utmost absolute respect.

You continue to amaze me. I hope you always stay precious.

Some people get off on thing like this, as there are some that wanting to know all the details as to one poster that I see on here. <br />
<br />
"How did you feel," What were you feeling," and "How did all this happen". Come on folks give this lady a freaken break.<br />
<br />
I'm sorry this happen to you and all the other women that are baring this same act happening to them. You survived and well you will never be able to change the past, you can how ever live for the present and the future and I applaud you for doing just that, being able to talk about it and hopefully warning others to try to prevent that from happening to them.

You are an amazing woman, thank you for shareing your story with us.

I think you survived all that rape, because you were a strong woman.<br />
What I would like to know is. Have you been able to enjoy sex, after all that?

Yes, and went on to marry for the second time. No I did not have any problems in the marriage in this area.

I am sorry that this happened to you. Your inner strength is an inspiration to other women. Thank you for sharing your experience.

Thank you for your kind words, I have come through by His strength and the sense of humour He graced me with ,I guess he figured I didn't get looks or talent so I had to have Something!

So, so sorry to hear that. Girl, this world is so sick. I hope you get all of the good things in life that you deserve. You're a good girl.

To all of you I will click on your icon and send you a message, I had no idea a group of strangers would reach out to me in such a manner...................aw man, now my makeup is running down my face.........oooo hey, this could be an improvement, I need to find a mirror and see............<br />

i dunt have any info about rape..plz tell me what did u feel??what were ur feelings then???and how did all this happen?

raped with a stick?????? awww crap. those cops and rapists need to be hung for good. You have came out a survivor. I would thought you would gone into a mental hospital for the mental injuries sustained from the psychological and emotional along with mental abuse. The story stretches me to the limit here. I cannot fathom this happening to my family. I am hoping you are on the road to recovery. damn those rapist and cops. Story like this one really makes me want to get armed to the teeth to guard myself daily. There are people out there to take advantage of others. <br />
<br />

I wish that didn't happen to you. That police officer and that rapist are awful jerks. You are easily the best part of that story. You're so incredible. I hope to have strength like yours someday. :)

The human spirit is amazing.<br />

One's 'higher-power' .. the phrase 'sense of humor' <br />
(under-rated) even when it comes to horrific experiences,.. <br />
contentment can be found.,<br />
.. & it sure beats the often bleak, unimaginable and <br />
'pathetic' physical/mental reality much too many times! <br />
<br />
I found myself chuckling, giggling and jeeringly<br />
laughing for a 'stretch' of disheartened road and <br />
found it to be more sensible than to die fighting <br />
for a reasonable explanation of 'hideous' .<br />
<br />
~ Peace~

I am so sorry. I really hope you are okay now. You survived as you are meant to be alive with us. You are great. I hope you get some theraphy and help, or perhaps you have and thank you for sharing your story. You have given us strength.

I'm so sorry this happened to you... <br />
<br />
This should never happen to anyone. So I am so sorry. <br />
<br />
But thank you for sharing your story. It means so much that you are so strong. <br />
<br />
Thank you.

Gee and i was pissed off all morning because dunkin dounuts didnt have any jelly filled munchins this morning. guess i can find away to get over it. JOKE. no not a joke i probally wont get over it, but then again certain people have the will and ability to survive and overcome almost anything, glad to see you one of them. <br />
Oh yeah snd i how that guy gets his junk caught in a slow rusty paper schredder.

Wow! I'm so sorry for what you've been through. Those cops need their heads to be pulled from out of their butts & well we won't continue down that road........ <br />
It's amazing what a sense of humor can do for people. It clearly has saved you! That's awesome. You go girl!

I love the fact you can find humor in the most vial of places.... you give me hope today : )

Very true. I survived a horrific childhood with similar experiences to yours.<br />
<br />
I'm sorry you suffered like that. Glad you survived and are obviously thriving in spite of what happened years ago.
