Smile Hey everyone - December 24th 2011, 02:43 AM

I know that there are a lot of posts on here about struggling with things caused by abuse and rape, but I think it's okay if I put this here. I'm new to this site, so bear with me lol

So, I've found growing up and moving forward after being abused to be really tough, and definitely lonely. I'm 17 and was abused by my step dad who basically raised me from the age of 6-14.

I usally don't tell that to anybody, even though he is in jail because of it, and am not open at all. But I figure this is a good place to see if there is anybody out there that understands and could use someone who understands just as much as I can.

Sorry again if this is posted in the wrong place, I just kinda am trying to find somewhere that I don't always feel so completely different.

Thanks for reading

I'm kind of new to this site as well... Uhm, I was raped almost exactly a year ago, (Jan. 13th..) &I really haven't coped with it yet, it didn't even hit me until half way through the summer, right around when my bestfriend and I got in an argument... Then I kind of did some stupid stuff, and he saved my life, and now I NEED to find a way to accept that it happened, and move on so I can stop hurting my bestfriend before he decides he's had enough with my depression

your in the right place! we've all been through something on here, and i didnt go through exactly what you did, but i was raped by an ex boyfriend, and i know how it feels, like your the only one and that your somehow 'different' from everyone else.

I know its difficult to move on, im going through that too, but ive found talking on here really helped, and you dont feel so alone. Ive also started to talk to a counsellor at college, so if thats a possibility for you that might help? Just remember that we have all come to this site to talk, we're all in the same boat (sort of)

Here if you ever need a chat,
keep strong,
xx

You're in the right place.
I'm so sorry to hear that this happened to you. It's so unfortunate that someone has to go through this by someone they are supposed to trust.
There are a lot of people on here who understand what you're going through and would be more than willing to chat with you.
I got abused but in a different way and by someone different; BUT it's still important to talk about it and I'd be willing to talk to you about it if you'd like.
It's hard to move on but 8 years later after my abuse, I'm feeling much better and stronger.
Like I said, feel free to message if you'd like.
Take care. <3
