Me if I keep living like this

Yes I can imagine that you being scared constantly from this incident is the cause... must have been terrible!! Maybe you should seek a professional shrink/counsellor to help you deal with it. 23 years is a very long time to live in fear!! Life is too short to live like that!<br />
<br />
There might be a rape crisis centre near you so you can talk to other people who have been through similar situations as you and they might be able to give you some advice on how they have dealt with the situation...<br />
<br />
I found this chatroom/message board where you can talk to other people online who too have been raped.<br />

I don't know if this will help you or not but check it out anyway!<br />
<br />
I wish you all the best with whatever you decide to do and the most important thing for u to do is to take care of yourself!!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELPFUL COMMENTS. I HAVE NOT SPOKEN IN DEPTH ABOUT IT.I HAVE GONE TO COUNSELING BUT THE RAPE ISSUE WAS NEVER REALLY ADDRESSED. I FEEL THAT I COULD TALK ABOUT IT HERE . SEEMS EVERYONE ON HERE HAS HAD SOME UNHAPPY EXPERIENCES.
