I'm delighted that you spoke up, and I can only hope that you are now in a safe place. This man was and still is dangerous, if not to you, certainly to others. Always remember that you have no shame in what happened to you. You are not to blame. The fact that you were living with a roommate at all at the age of 16 tells me you come from an environment that was not healthy. This put you in a very vulnerable place. This sick excuse of a man took advantage of your vulnerabilities and your youth in the most vile ways. Please consider reporting and disclosing what he did, not only to protect you, but possibly others as well. And please consider seeking out some form of counselling or therapy in order to gain some perspective, in order to help you develop a healthy self-esteem, and in order to deal with the repercussions of what you endured, both at the hands of this sicko, his friends and perhaps from your own parents or guardians. You didn't deserve to be abused. You certainly deserve help for the fact that you were. I send you love, light and healing energy, Dylan. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Dylan, I really hope that you're out of that house now and that you're in a safe place now...and thank goodness you survived! Your so-called manager and his slimy friends are deeply troubled, helpless bullies who chose to use your youth and vulnerabilities for their sadistic gratification. Beating you, strangling you, burning you, torturing you and even starving you are just enough to throw those horrific, poor excuses of human beings to jail for a long time. Oh, and they're wrong. You're not fat; you're not ugly; you're beautiful; never believe any of those nasty lies that they were spewing. Oh, and I'm glad you told someone; I just hope those sick, sadistic beasts get incarcerated for all those terrible crimes that they committed against you because you did nothing wrong.
