Hi Kaitlyn,

Welcome to AS. I'm sorry you have experienced trauma, but you have found a very supportive site. I understand that feeling of thinking you've put something behind you, but then it resurfaces on you, and it feels like it's starting all over again. I'm sorry it has for you. Reaching out isn't easy, so realize that you have taken a big step. I wish you well as you continue down your path of healing.

Mary

Thankyou everyone for being so welcoming ... after 14 years i put in a statement today, it was almost unbearable but i think i need to do it to startmoving forward

Oh? Really??? That's good news! I love it when people seal the fate of their abusers. You may even get a phone call soon telling you he's already committed another offense in the past. Once they are reported it goes a long way towards justice prevailing.

Ive realized  now that my boys are in bed and im sitting here on my own, im terrirfied. Its being investigated and I'm not close with anyone and im very closed off about talking to people about what happened.. i havent felt this alone since it happened to me...

Sitting with you Rachel. I haven't had the courage to report the crime done to me, and I admire your bravery. It shows a lot of strength - strength that will get you through this. I hope the terror eases up soon.

I was raped two weeks ago, Saturday night.  I reported the disturbance the same night, but walked into the hospital two days later and reported the rape.  It is still under investigation, but I couldn't get a stalking injunction.  I fear him.  6 foot 10 inches 350 pounds with guns and ammo in his car and he had so much control and hurt me in so many ways.  I don't regret reporting the crime, but of course Date Rape is looked at differently than other domestic violence.  I am new to this forum and I am here to chat.

Thankyou everyone.  Its just going to take alot of determination.  Because it happened so long ago and there's no evidence they want me to call him and they record it to try and get him to say something that can be used against him in court.. I dont know how I will be able to speak to him again

Welcome to AS! I'm sorry you're here, but I'm glad you found us. I think you'll find this a supportive, informative community of members. I know I was a bit nervous about sharing my story here, but it gave me tremendous relief when I did. Take your time and browse the forums at your own pace. Share when you're ready. Nobody here will judge you.
