About E.A.

I’m 28 years old and have been to hell twice as a victim of rape. I’m sick and tired of having the shit kicked out of me in life and am determined to fight back, even if it can only be with words. By sharing what I’ve experienced, I hope that it will help me to exorcise the demons in my past and let other sexual assault victims know that they’re not alone in the world – that there are people out there who understand. And maybe my thoughts can help contribute to a greater awareness of rape in society.

    I’m 28, too, and dealing with the same thing. My rape occurred in college, but I’m basically just now starting the healing process. It is no fun, I’ll say that much. Just came across your blog tonight, and I love what I’ve read so far. I keep hearing that this is what it takes to put this mess behind us, so keep at it!

      Thank you, M.M., I’ll definitely try! My God, 10 years of carrying this BS around is no joke. You’re strong just for being able to do that – don’t let anyone, including yourself, throw shade on the fact that you’re starting to heal now, because throughout all the time that it took for you to get comfortable with the idea of wanting to survive your nightmare, you were still carrying that baggage. You’re 28, I’m 28; let’s see if we get rid of our bags at the same time 🙂

        Sounds like a plan! 🙂

    Yes, I think as adults we have the right to chose our own behaviour, and when and where we do that.

    As another survivor of date rape, this blog has helped me so much. I no longer feel alone. Thank you.

    I am 30 years old…over 3 years ago I was in an abusivd relationship and he raped me more than once…the relationship only lasted almost 2 months…I started the healing process right after walking away from it…I am about to graduate with a bachelors degree in psychology…I want to work with women who have been abused or raped or both…I believe that God is going to use my story of what happened to me to reach out to other women who have been through something similar…keep speaking about it because the world needs to stop pretending that rape happens.
