  6. Hello!

    Greetings and salutations. My name is Jo. I own 7 pets. I have hundreds of books. I collect figures and small, dainty crystal animals. I'm an artist, a writer, and a published poet. I'm starting training to become a teaching assistant. It's be suspected that I was a victim of sexual abuse up to aged 6. And I was raped 354 days ago. Which is 50 weeks and 4 days. Or 8,496 hours. Or 509,760 minutes. I tend to use numbers. It's easier than dates, especially when the first anniversary is just 11 days away. I also list things before I tell something so big, as you can see above. It distracts from the important part. I'm not sure who it helps more. Maybe them. Maybe it helps them to process that this happened to their best friend. To their cousin; to their niece. To their daughter. I don't know. I'm not very good with emotions; particularly others'. My parents aren't supportive. They found out 160 days after it happened. I can't remember how many times they've forced me to go back to the place where I bumped into the guy. They've outright called me a liar. They threatened me with lie detectors. They've even tried to tell me that it's okay if I wanted it, that '18 is a respectable age to lose your virginity'. I didn't 'lose' anything. It was taken from me. My last psychologist said they are some of the most obstructive, invalidating people he's ever met. No one besides a handful of people know about the suspected sexual abuse. Three of which are online, and one is a friend I've known for years. I actually have a query to put on here about it, I may ask later. I'm sorry this is so long. I have a propensity to ramble when I introduce myself, and clearly this post hasn't made a liar out of me yet. I'm glad to have found somewhere that is understanding and listens. Have a lovely day.
