I was 18. Got invited by a friend to a house party. He raped me when it was just two of us.
I screamed, fought, shouted. I felt like I was going to die. I was running out of breath. He was stronger than me. He had his way and from that day I died inside.
Three years now I still feel the hurt and the pain. Flashbacks…panic attacks. I was so afraid of telling anybody. I didn’t know what to do. I just let it slide by.
