I've been there, done that. I've had to go through that horrendous attack. I know what its like to cry yourself to sleep, to be forced with a secret you feel like you have to keep. I didn't think I'd make it. I thought I'd just end up breaking. A year went by I still wanted to die. But I survived. Here I am celebrating another year, hopefully this one won't have to be lived in fear. There were plenty of times where I wanted to just give up. But I had just enough.. Enough to keep trying.. Enough to keep fighting. The battle isn't over, what he did couldn't have been any lower. But I'm still here, with a smile on my face.. Realizing that I'm NOT a disgrace.
