This is how old I was when a teenage neighbor, a boy, began sexually abusing me. I didn’t tell my parents..I didn’t tell my brothers.
He was a family friend, his sister was my friend.. i slept over at their house.. all the time.. I didn’t know what reason to give to stop spending the night..so I would go. I trained myself to stay awake so I could fight him off. To this day, I rarely sleep through the night.
This lasted for years.
This was a difficult day.
