“Slut.”

I am so sorry that you were treated so brutally, first by your friend’s brother, then by them and your own family. I hope you have found a chosen family that supports you and will listen when you need to talk. I know you said you have healed by now, but we all need our chosen families.

I was raped by my first husband. I have been married to my second husband for almost 25 years. I still flinch when someone touches me and I am not expecting it. Years ago, my husband learned to come up and say “I am going to touch you now.” He doesn’t have to do that any more, but I am blessed with a partner who works with me now. I hope you have people you can lean on as well.
