something you said, Magoo, really struck a chord with me.
it was like i was reliving my own disclosure.
i was trying to comfort a girlfriend who was not reacting very well to her own sexual assault.
she got angry at me and said, "What do you know!
You've never been raped!"
I blurted out 'YES..I WAS' in a relieving, breathless sigh of exclamation' YES' 'YES I WAS' Finally ...WHEW!
I'm Free...finally...someone asked. Someone cared enough to ask because I didn't have the nerve to tell.
I am now working through it. No more secrets. I never told another soul until then.
Thanks for letting me share...
THANK YOU, Magoo, for sharing!
ever since that day, i can't hide my thoughts.
it was like the lock broke off and there is no way i am going to keep another secret.
the very words "secret" or "silence" make me suspicious.
i don't even like "shhhh" or "shut up!"
