I'm very glad you WERE born...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

No Name, you said: "Sometimes I wish I was born ugly or not born at all." Attractiveness (or homosexuality, for that matter) is not the underlying issue here. Sex offenders, even adolescent offenders, get sexual gratification taking advantage of the young and vulnerable. You cannot blame yourself for what that 15-year-old boy did to you. It wasn't your fault. You have NOTHING to feel ashamed of.

You also said you still have nightmares about what happened to you. I strongly urge you to get some form of counselling, No Name. For one thing, I believe you need to talk to someone about the events that are still wreaking havoc in your life. For another, a counsellor may be able to help you with the emotional turmoil all this has caused you. Just don't give up. You were very strong to have gotten through the abuse; stay strong and get yourself some help.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
