I was sexually abused at the age of 11 or 12 for a period of 6 to 9 months.
It was in a public place just out of sight of adults that could have saved me.
My perpetrator was a boy just 3 years(I think) older than myself. He made it into a game that excelated everytime we met(on an almost weekly basis).
Sometimes there was the sweet reprive of not seeing him or no abuse. I got away from the sitiation eventually and I never saw him again.
I lived for 5 years in complete denial. Then for two in not telling anyone else. Then I told a few special people, whom I can count on my hands. They are all gone. The effects of my abuse lingered throughout pushed friends away, etc. Then I had a tramatic experience again of a differnt kind, tryed to push it away like I did my abuse. It didn't work. Four months latter, I finally, got into therapy. The first two months of therapy were tough and I was struggling outside of it, and push more people away. I'm still in therapy and feel like I'm healing. I'm a survior. and this new year is a fresh start for me. At the end of 2008 I found some good places for support. I'm ready to be survior, it is who I am. This is my year.
