The darkness that crept in the edges, bends, and crevices of this life is what still haunts me. It's why I'm 45 and still having nightmares, on medication, seeing a therapist, and can't work right now. This should not be my life...but it is! The darkness is with you every morning when you wake up, every step you take (forward or backwards), every assignment that you get at work, every conversation that you have with people, every intimate moment with your loved ones, and every night when you go to sleep.
Sexual abuse can happen to anyone! It happened to me - for 5 years! From the ages of about 7 years old to about 12 years old. Several different offenders, varying in severity of abuse. I kept it secret, I told no one, and pretended like it wasn't happening. That's when my soul began its journey of suffering and went in to survival mode. Why was I a target so many times???
