My friend had a baby shower today, I made myself go because I had promised I would months ago... first time I have forced myself out of the house for something not hospital/police/therapist related. it was nice to see friendly faces but the shower itself was too much for me emotionally :(

It doesn't feel like what happened to me was rape. But everyone I have told that matters say yes. Would this be the right place (this blog I mean) to be more specific about what happened but not be graphic about it? I won't go into inappropriate detail but I need someone else to tell me that I am not overre...

Maybe one day I'll feel this way... "Now I am invincible No, I ain't a scared little girl no more Yeah, I am invincible What was I running for I was hiding from the world I was so afraid, I felt so unsure Now I am invincible And I'm a perfect storm" - Kelly Clarkson
