I'm 30. My mother raped me between the ages of 6 and 7. My friends say that I'm making it up, and that I am in some way delusional and mentally ill.

I'm willing to just forget about it, but something inside me keeps on telling me that it happened.

I don't know how to validate my stories, and I really need some help, but I don't want to see a psychiatrist, because I don't want to be told I'm a liar.
