So Long Ago But Still With Me

More than thirty years ago I was drugged and raped by the man I was dating at the time and two of his friends. I was so numb the next day, I could not register what happened beyond the fact that I’d “lost” an entire night of my life. The following years, I would realize I had lost much more than that.

Perhaps being sexually abused as a child made me numb to a man who was a predator of women. I’d lost the ability to recognize danger.

I got my first flashbacks of that lost night almost twenty years later. I have received a lot of healing over the years, but I’m not sure I can really heal until this man is behind bars. But what can I do thirty years after the fact?

I admire you, Linor, for speaking up. Too many women keep rape secret because they are ashamed. It helped me tremendously when you said, “The worst has already happened.” Thank you.
