A couple of years ago back when I was in my senior year of high school some of my friends convinced me to go to this party. It was the last and first party I will ever go to. I didn’t plan to have any drinks at this party. All I had was water and soda. But after a couple of hours I started to get dizzy and feel sick. So I told my friend I was leafy and left the house. I remember the drive home but don’t recall ever opening the front door to my house. l didn’t know if then but it was going to be a long night. Apparently some guy from the party followed me home. He was able to convince me that I had driven the wrong way home (and I was stupid enough to believe him) so he offered me a ride home. I later passed out and woke up in an unknown area. I felt the dirt underneath me which meant I was outside. This guy was all over me and I tried to push him away but he was definitely bigger than me. So after a while I just laid there wishing for it to end. And my wish came true. Someone happened to pass by. He grabbed my attacker by the arms and got him off of me. He told him he was going to call the cops if he didn’t leave. So the attacker left. I didn’t even know this guy and he didn’t know me but he was very helpful. I was treated at the hospital and I later thanked the guy for helping me. We became good friends after that and still are to this day. After what happened to me it didn’t break me down it just made me stronger. I don’t want to let one accident ruin my life. I want to help people who are going through the same problem so I am now a licensed therapist and help others through there hard time.
