Hi my name's Shawnie. I am now 20 years old. I was raped and emotionally abused by a "friend" and coworker when I was 16. I now suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. Just this Halloween I had a really bad panic attack and ended up in the hospital. It was there that I first confessed that I had been raped to a social worker. I now am seeing a therapist weekly and I have finally shared, what had been a secret for so long, to a few close people in my life. It's still a battle I face every day. I hope this site will be helpful in my healing process and I can find others to talk to!
