Just for the record, it IS perfectly normal for someone to repress painful memories. That's a coping skill. And you might be surprised at how many people of coped in that way. The fact that these memories have now surfaced tells me that you are now in a better position to be able to deal with them, but you can't deal with them alone. Don't rely on your friends alone to understand; they are ill equipped to deal with such issues. This is a very complicated situation you are dealing with. Consider telling someone like a school counselor. Consider contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. If at all possible, consider some form of counseling to help you. You didn't deserve to be sexually assaulted; you certainly deserve help now that you have. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

virginity - breaking the hymen?
by: Anonymous

A brief note - I don't subscribe to the belief that the breaking of the hymen necessary means you are not a virgin. I personally choose to believe that you ARE a virgin until you choose to have a loving, equal relationship with a partner. I don't know if that helps or not, but I thought I would throw it out there for you to consider.

Be well.

My two cents.
