I’m a  survivor not a victim I was raped 10 months ago and its been a ruff road from therapy to trying to comment suicide  to having nobody to talk to or tell my story to. Still after 10 months they just not decided to arrest him and that if they can find him because he moved to a different state but the far of going to court the fear of having to see him face to face makes me freeze up makes me want to hide in a dark room and never come out. It took me these 10 months to finally realize I will not be a victim no more because being a victim means he is still in control means he has power over me and I refuse to let him hurt me any farther so I will take my life back I will not let him scare me into hiding no longer.so today  I will wipe my tears and walk with my head held high and when it comes time to face him in court I will not let him see me cry I will not let him see me scared I refuse to let him know think he has power over me any longer .i refuse to let my rapist win.

Hi brooklyn,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you've endured 10 months ago, but you will find tons of support here. You are not alone. You are a very brave survivor and good for you for speaking out and working to find justice. It doesn't happen often enough. Take your time and look around, when you are ready to interact, feel free to. I wish you the best of luck in the possible charges and court case, as well as your personal journey in healing.

Dear brooklyn

Welcome to After Silence!!

I'm sorry for what you have been through.  I find it is easier to talk on forums then out loud.  Being here has helped me so much, even from the first time I ever posted.  It is still helping me - I have so much support here and I know you will, as well.  Here at AS, we are like a big family and our members are kind and non-judgemental.

I am sending you lots of safe hugs! 

Take care!
