I'm new here and I just wanted to say hi.
I was raped by a "friend" who I cared about and trusted. I am currently dealing with the aftermath.
I've been looking around a little here, and am hoping this will be a place that I can talk about what I am dealing with.

I am so sorry that you had to endure anything that you have. Please know that you are not alone and that even if you knew this person it was not your fault.

Please keep posting & be safe.


Donna =)
