When I was around 8 years old, a family member began sexually assaulting me. Every night I was subjected to abuse. Eventually after almost 3 years I came forward. But instead of having the support of my family, I was ostracized and treated as a pariah.
I got no support. I had to help myself no matter how difficult . I went through deep depression and multiple suicide attempts, and eventually ended up in therapy. The therapy has been effective.
I met my boyfriend of a year and a half. Hes been nothing but supportive and loving.
I am working on having a stable relationship with a partner and being happy and confident in myself.
It always gets better. No matter who says different.
