My father sexually,physically and mentally abused me from ages 6-12.
He would stay with us months at a time and during his stay would sexually assault me.
He would strangle me until I passed out.
He duct taped me to a chair for several hours while I cried.
My mom was at work while he abused me.
I would try to stay outside. At a friend’s etc.
When I was 14 I was abducted, held hostage and raped for 4 days straight at the Dayton military base in Ohio.
Military court treated me as if I was the culprit.
As if a 14 year old child tempted a man to rape.
The man ended up walking because of my unstable mental condition.
I had been in and out of mental facilities from 12 to 18.
I was a drug addict, turned alcoholic a few years back.
Finally, I am able to start my healing journey.
Im taking back what was stolen from me.
I’m taking back my smiles. My dancing. My singing. My laughter. My love. My fun personality.
I’m finding that healing is possible. That self love is possible again. I’m relearning.
