Hello all. I recently joined this site. My username is a reference to Pokemon (I'm a huge Pokemon/anime fan). My main reason for joining this site is to find other survivors of abuse. I am 22, female, and was sexually assaulted in my university. For privacy I will not disclose the name of this university, but that it is in the U.S. The person who assaulted me was someone I was friends with/crushed on. Things seemed fine, until they touched me. I confronted them out right in the moment but they denied it. As we walked home they walked next to me uncomfortably close. By the time they got home they admitted they got "turned on" by it. At that point, I decided to bring it up to my school. Sadly, they did barely anything. I was able to make a written report, where the guard I was with sarcastically said "you cant make reports like this to the police". In the end, me and this person were a part of an anime club and the person was able to walk in the club like nothing happened. My friends didn't care andI was all alone. Along with growing up in an abusive household and suffering from BPD (borderline personality disorder), I still struggle daily. In the end, it makes me feel sad that I can't say like other students I had a "good college life". I suffered, was bullied, and abused. I wonder if maybe something is wrong with me that I didn't have the "good college life". I wonder why am I different. Why was I always different and picked on by family, friends, etc.
Things haven't really gotten better. But thats my story.
