I was 5 when it all started. My own brother he molested me for 9 years. I am now 13 and spoke up a few months ago. They don’t believe me though. They say there’s no evidence to prove this and my mom refuses to let me see a gynecologist so I don’t have to suffer anymore. All my friends are guys but I have two best friends who are girls. Everyone says I’m a whore because I hang around with guys. It’s not true. It’s just because there’s no drama. When they talk about sex I’ll joke but on the inside I hurt. They you a virgin I say yes because I’m scared what they’ll think about me.
