You have nothing to be ashamed of; there is no shame in having been violated. You were groomed and your body betrayed you. Please look into some form of counselling in order to help you deal with this. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Thanks for sharing your story.
by: Mac

Proud of you Andrew for sharing, as I know it took deep couage to do so. We have to be able to share our story, & get it out from inside of us, so we can begin to heal. Definatley find some good counseling where-ever you live. You are not to blame for what happened to you. Like many others who have lost their innocnece at youth, we can get help, & get our lives back together again. Keep us posted & let us know how you are doing on your journey of recovery. You're on your way Andrew! Be gentle & patient with yourself, as it takes time to work tru those things,etc.

You are brave
by: John

You are so brave Andrew. Thank you for sharing this. You must understand that you are not alone. Something similar happened to me. Also, I had sexual issues for a while. You will get through it, just be patient with yourself and give it some time. I'm so sorry he did this to you. Know that time heals ALL things.

Thank you all for your kind words and guidance. You are right of course. And it is not easy to bring one's self to admit this, along with the powerful feelings and dangers to health and the stigma attached - it will take time.
