@carolandmocha @JohnnyBlkshrt @Jamsy69 Mine brutal rape was in 1974. I still flinch when my gentle, loving, supportive husband raises his arm -to scratch or grab something overhead. I still won’t deadbolt the door when I’m inside -that’s how he trapped me. I still have nightmares -screaming with no sound.
@carolandmocha @JohnnyBlkshrt @Jamsy69 I was editor of our school paper and yearbook and I encouraged his poetry and art.
He was my best friend’s boyfriend and she knew he “liked” me.
She blamed me.
Why was I so nice to him?
He hanged himself a couple of years later but I’m sure he raped others.

@carolandmocha @JohnnyBlkshrt @Jamsy69 She asked what I was wearing. We were never friends after that.
It took years for me to trust anyone and still don’t trust easily. My now-husband asked “what the hell did he do to you?” but meant my ex. Took years to tell him about assault.
