Hi, I'm Bailey

11 posts in this topic

Hi, obviously I'm new here. My name is Bailey, and I just finished my freshman year of college. I was raped 17 weeks ago. That's actually the first time I've been able to write that, let alone speak it.

I'm here on recommendation from my therapist. I'm really grateful for even the idea of finding support and solidarity, I guess would be the word, here. I really want to share my story, to get it off my chest. I feel like that will be a big step for me. I'm working on it, but as you all probably know, it's really hard. Anyway, I look forward to meeting and helping to support others here.
