June 10, 2005 – When I became forever changed

Today marks 12 years since I became a kidnap and rape survivor.  Even though I am a survivor, it changed who I was. Changed how I looked in the mirror, changed everything down to my core. Its been a long road to weeks and days without nightmares.

I won’t share any details here, today… maybe some other time.

Testifying was awful, however thanks to me sharing my story and not staying quiet, he is in prison FOR LIFE, without the possibility of parole.  He will NEVER be able to hurt another innocent young girl. EVER EVER EVER.  Maybe this is why??  Some people will understand this post, some won’t.  That’s okay, it’s not for you, it’s for me.
