Hello First Time Posting


Recommended Posts


Hi everyone, very glad to have found this space. I am finally ready to open up a little bit about what happened to me.

I am almost 50 years old and my SA and rape, stalking and kidnapping/holding me for ransom happened starting when I was 18. It's taken me 30 years, to get my life back on track. My rapist hijacked my life. He was a prominent leader of a large religious community that I got forced into. A lot of people were involved.

This is all I want to share for now. Thanks for listening.
