Hey everyone, I am 18 years old and a survivor of sexual abuse. This happened from the time I was 10 until I was 14 by a neighbor.. who the community would describe as friendly, young, good looking, and caring. This guy, aside from the abuse, treated me like his own son..and although I have a hard time saying this, he was really good to me (outside of the molestations). His reputation, good-looks and all the good things he did for me made me feel to scared to tell anyone, and to this day I still haven't told anyone that I know.

I hope to meet other survivors on here and to connect with others. I'm here for anyone that needs to talk also.


fake a smile & deal with the side effects.
