Do NOT Trust Strangers

I was 19 at the time. Moved to a state across the country for a job. Met a few people there I hung out with daily. Went to one of the bars with them one night. We had met up with some people they knew. We had ordered a drink but by the time the drinks came back my friends said they were leaving and were coming right back. I got my drink and was still with the two men who my friends knew. Drank the one drink then about 20 minutes later started feeling so unbelievably sick. I know myself and I know I didn’t feel this way from one drink. Wasn’t a normal drunk. Felt sick. Started sweating, my head was feeling so heavy and my body was loosing control of itself. I had seen a girl who I have met before in town. So I had asked her to help me I thought I was dying. I was so confused. I remember getting into a car with her and then walking up stairs somewhere and that was it. I woke up in a hotel room, with a man I didn’t know on top of me. I was still out of it but I was just saying stop stop please I don’t feel good. Please stop I don’t know you. That girl I knew was nowhere to be found. She left me with some random guy and I don’t even know if she knew him. after when I could get up I went downstairs and got help from the hotel employee. To this day, I continue to blame myself for being at that bar. For going up to a girl I barley knew to help me. But I’m starting to realize that I was a victim. I’m a very nice girl and there’s bad people out there who take advantage of your kindness. I’m sharing this story so every girl out there who hasn’t gone through this kind of thing can learn even though you think your invisible and this won’t happen to you. It can. Cause that’s what I thought. I didn’t think I could put myself in that sort of situation but it can happen. And for the woman who have been through this. WE ARE VICTIMS. It isn’t our fault. We’re not gross we can’t forget but we can overcome this and help other woman.
