Black Out

I have just decided to come clean I’ve been hiding it for too long trying to pretend it didn’t happen to me and it can’t go on. I don’t have a lot of people I feel comfortable yet to talk to so here it goes. I was kinda into this guy who worked with me he was nice and friendly and made me feel special. One day I was at his desk and I “forgot” my phone case when I had taken it off. I later found he stole it on purpose. And he told me on our day off I could pick it up. So I went to his place and got my phone case when he offered me a water bottle. I didn’t think much of it but after a few seconds I got dizzy and blacked out. I don’t know if any part of me was conscious but I don’t remember anything until I woke up later that day on his floor naked. I felt so ashamed but mostly sick I hurt all over and I got dressed and ran out of there as he was no where to be found. When I got home I cried but I didn’t really comprehend what happened until a day or two after that. I still get that feeling of being ashamed like I’m dirty, I know there’s nothing now to do about it. But if I could do over one thing it would be to report it I just wanted to forget it and that was wrong.
