I was molested and raped approximately 15 years ago (when I was a child and adolescent). To this day, I am terrified of my own shadow. I can't sleep without nightmares. I don't want to go out of the house for fear of getting attacked again. I feel like I'm damaged. I feel like I'm tainted. I feel like it will never end. When I travel to school or work, I'm constantly thinking of an exit route. What if happens again? PTSD consumes every aspect of me. The essence of me is gone. Has been gone since the first time I was molested. I will never be the same again. Thank you.
