Patrick Lewis - Something to Say

Patrick Lewis

My 1st experience with SA came at the age of 6 in the 1st grade. 

In the restroom of the Elementary School I attended at the hands of two teenage boys. 

I suppressed this until my freshman year in High School. 

Going to the restroom when a much older upperclassman would already be there,  would cause flashbacks that continued to this day.

In the summer before my 4th grade year I was raped by a male relative who is now deceased. 

Later that fall in school while on my way to lunch I was inappropriately touched and fondled by a 12 year old boy. 

Both times occurred at the age of 8. Both times I experienced pleasure. 

For years I was disgusted with myself and avoided friendships with other males (I actually was afraid of older males) because I felt awkward and out of place. 

In 1998 while at a revival, a Male Bishop prayed for me and reminded me of who I was in God.
