Surviving ME

Surviving ME

A survivor story written by Maria 

I have been a rape survivor since the 1970’s and 80’s.

My story has been so painful that it causes me so many problems.

Although I think about suicide, I wouldn’t do it because I’m a coward.

I cry on a daily basis. I barely sleep and I don’t eat right.

My mother allowed her second husband to rape me when I was four, then she covered it up for many years. Then she would get paid money from men to have sex with me for many years.

She never went to jail. She pretends that she the victim.

Those rapes finally ended when I was 9 years old.

By then I was angry, mad, hurt and so many other things, that I can’t even keep a man.

I feel so worthless and I can’t seem to let go and I’ve tried for years.

I was raped again in 1988 and got pregnant. I gave my baby up for adoption and I have such a hole in me that I don’t even know what to do with all of this.

I have so much to say, but honestly I’m not good at this.
