I'm new to this website and I wanted to introduce myself. I was raped and sodomized by my husband in the early part of this year. He also choked me. I've separated from him and am very happy to be on my own. I'm slowly getting better, but a day doesn't go by where I don't forget what has happened to me. I'm waiting for the day when it won't come up in my mind at all. Sometimes I want to cry and can't. I know things are better than what they were and so I'm grateful that I have a chance to start over. I'm trying to stay positive and not focus on regrets and the negative things.
