I was 6 years old when I was first raped. My older brother saw fit to make me a woman. For many years this went on, I didn’t even realize what he was doing to me until I was 13 and it continued for several years after as I did not know how to stop it.
I don’t know how to share my story, I still feel like it’s dirty. I’ve come a long way though and I know that what my brother and father did to me is not dirty and is not ok. It does not make me a lesser person. I’ve come to terms with the fact that something different happened to me than happens to most people.
My nightly rape continued for a period of 7+ years and to this day I find it difficult to have a relationship with the opposite sex, for reasons they will never understand.
I write this in a chance there is someone out there who has been through trauma. It doesn’t have to be similar I’m just tired of being alone. If anyone would like to chat and work through things let me know. I’m in a good place and looking for company.
