Hi Everyone July 05, 2004 5:50 PM

Ok, I'm new here, and maybe not so sure I'm in the right group. Just looking to talk about the issue- I haven't been abused physically in a relationship but have been raped; I'm hoping some insight from this group can help me learn to deal with life better. Please feel free to tell me if this is off-topic.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Hello Christine! July 06, 2004 9:43 AM

First let me tell you that you are'nt alone. Your feelings are very valid and it's important to work through them. I hope other women here will share their encouragement also. Remember you are the victim, and RAPE is a crime of VIOLENCE/ABUSE/CONTROL and NOBODY has the right to VIOLATE another Human Being. He is the CRIMINAL and needs to be punished to the full extent of the LAW! Hugs!!! Cherie  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Hi Christine July 12, 2004 2:09 PM

You are in the right place. Rape is abuse and it is a crime and unfortunatley some of us here have probably also been subjected to this. I have. My partner and the father of my children, raped me. It is a very hard thing to come to terms with and I hope you can find some support here. Always just remember that you were no way at fault and he deserves to be punished. I have the trial coming up at the end of this year for my ex, so fingers crossed that he gets what he deserves. Thanks for finding us. Welcome.  [ send green star]
