Last year was really hard for me.. I was into a lot of drugs due to my past and I was living in a group home at the time and this girl I lived with told me her boyfriend was picking us up and we were going to go drink and get drugs so I went and along the way her boyfriend picked up his friend and we went to a hotel. We were drinking and doing lines and eventually I couldn’t even function, I thought I was going to puke.. So I went to the bathroom and my friends boyfriend followed me in and closed the door behind… I was laying on the floor and he turned off the lights and he started taking off my tights and underwear. I knew what was going to happen but I couldn’t say anything other than a faint “I have a boyfriend” and he said he would take care of me, while it was happening I was in and out of consciousness. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t do anything except let it happen. I remember hitting my head off the floor, I didn’t cry, I just laid there. He even put my underwear and pants back on after, and went back into the other room. I eventually got myself up, fixed my hair and went out like nothing happened… I tried to say something to my friend after but she just laughed. I tried to tell the cops but because I was so intoxicated my memory wasn’t that good.
