I was date raped anally by someone that I thought I knew. It was horrible forceful and I couldn’t escape. I reported it to the police but I dropped the charges after phone intimidation and also the lack of support from my family and police. It turned out that he had done it again and I went back to court to support the other victim but due to her health and anxiety issues she didn’t pursue the case. I am still living this nightmare that he will find me and come after me again.
