Stranger Rape

Dedication: I dedicate this story to anyone who have ever been taken advantage of. You are all beautiful, unique, and brave.

I was raped 7 months ago. The man who raped me was never caught.
I am 17 years old.
I am not even close to being okay.
My “friend” Lindsey decided to invite 2 dudes over to her house. One happened to be her boyfriend while the other one was just a friend of the boyfriend.

she left me alone in the room with him.
it was that day that I knew not every friend you have will always be a “best,” one. I have not been able to tell anyone about my story yet. Only my parents and close relatives know. It is rather embarrassing.

I have been going to counseling sessions every since that night and I still can not get the thought of that man on me out of my head. The smell of his alcoholic breathe, his scent, his chain. It wont leave me. I can’t sleep at night knowing that he hasn’t been caught yet. Makes me think he will come again. I feel like if I sleep I am going to wake up with him on top of me again.

The memories of these types of things never go away. But, I want all of you to know that you do have a voice. Please use it when you see and or hear something about someone or something.

I wanted to share a little bit of my story just for everyone to know that just when something bad happens, it does NOT mean you have to stop fighting. Live your life.
