Secrets

First of all, I want to thank Linor. Thank you for sharing your story. I have watched it about 5 times by now. Every time I have a hard time, I watch this so I don’t have to feel so alone.

I am 22 years old now and I was sexually abused when I was around the age of seven by a man that was fixing things around my parents house. At first I actually liked him. He was funny, brought me games and other things. I remember the first time something happened very well. He asked me if I wanted to see something, but it had to be a secret between just us two. Of course, a seven year old thought a secret was awesome. Well it was not that secret I had in mind.

It happened a few times, I don’t remember everything and sometimes I’m glad I don’t. Sometimes I want to know everything that he did to me. It was actually this year I had a really hard time with it. I got depressed and felt just horrible.

I am 22 years old and I can not sleep alone at nights. If I do, I cannot sleep or have nightmares. I have told one of my sisters and my parents not so long ago, but I feel like I cannot talk to them because they don’t know what I feel like, when your scared at night, when you are exhausted by all the thoughts.

I am frustrated…does anyone relate?
