  1. Thanks everyone, it's nice to know there's support and love on this site..it helps, a lot.
  2. All of my friends have distanced themselves from me over the past year, and I don't know why... it's making me feel lonely though, I have few people to talk to these days and I've always been pretty good about managing life alone because I've had to adapt to living without friends. Lately though, it's getting to me, just feeling lost. Trying to do community/volunteer work and focusing more on my own work to keep busy, but that only goes so far. It especially hurts because a friend I was very close with for a few years and really liked..we ended up sleeping together (which was stupid of me) and now he doesn't speak to me anymore...just feeling...Idk :c and I opened up to him about how I have trust issues and how I hate being abandoned and he basically abandoned me without a second thought. We don't talk unless I initiate the conversation, so I stopped because it's become an unhealthy/one-sided friendship. But in some ways it hurts even more knowing he didn't care enough to check in with me over the past few months. Sorry, I needed to rant, even if it was only to the internet. It helps.
  3. Hi Aaron, and welcome. I am new to this site too and I have never joined any online forums previous to this either. You are not alone, and there's plenty of support on this site. I haven't even been on for a whole day and already it's helped me to feel so much better. Wish you the best of luck and hope you find what you're looking for here!
  4. Thank you, it's nice to know the people here care. It's difficult to talk about what happened after the end of the story above because it felt even more humiliating and degrading and when I think of telling the rest of my story it makes me feel embarrassed/ashamed. I'm sure I'll work up the courage to get it all out though. I just need to take it one day at a time.

    My story

    *Trigger Warning* I'm going to keep this pretty short. I don't want to talk too much about it yet, but would like to get some of it off my chest. I was sexually assaulted by my older brother's friend. When he stopped by our house, while my brother was preoccupied with making them food or setting up games - anything where this friend of his had a few extra minutes free - he'd come into my room and force me to make out with him. He would touch me inappropriately and force his body on mine so I couldn't move much. I thought that would be the end of it, I didn't think he could ever take things any farther, and this went on for months whenever he came over. One night when he spent the night at our house, after I had already fallen asleep and my brother and the rest of the house was sleeping - he came into my room. I woke up confused - still hazy from sleep - to find he was already inside me. Scared and frozen, I didn't do anything. I didn't want to react, fearful of what would happen if I did. He was a good 80 pounds heavier than me (very large framed and tall). So I kept quiet, stayed still, and silently cried. There's more to the story, but as I am already feeling sick typing this, I'm going to cut it short. Maybe some day I will feel better talking about it and letting it out. Happy I could get what I said off my chest though, I do feel better knowing I'm not alone and have support.
