The Perfect Victim


Did you know that according to Popular Science, roughly 5% of women who are raped experience an orgasm during the assault? And that’s actually a pretty low statistic because I’ve read other studies that that statistic at a much higher percentage. I personally know for a fact that it does happen simply because I’ve worked

The New Government Conspiracy


After nearly two decades of hard drug use, my ex’s brain started to cook. I feel fairly confident in giving him that medical diagnosis despite the fact that I myself have never personally attended medical school, simply based on the fact that I was around him long enough to watch his brains actually start to

What Is Sex Like After Rape?


As you guys know I’ve been a support group leader for sexual assault and domestic abuse victims for a while now. Aside from running general groups, I specialize in assisting sexual assault victims with regaining their sexuality. Support groups are fantastic, amazing, wonderful places, but unfortunately they are oftentimes filled with women who have been

Because No One Ever Told Me


The first time I found myself standing in a courtroom was when I was 18 years old.  Several months earlier I had broken up with a guy that I had been dating for two years. The break up was bad; so bad in fact that the next morning when the police showed up at my

Nothing More Than A Burden


These last two years have put me through so many life changing emotions that when I sit back and think about it, it feels unreal. The biggest emotion that I have been struggling with, as you guys have seen here in previous posts, has been making myself a priority. I’ve still really been struggling with

Getting Nervous About Tomorrow


So tomorrow is the big day for me. My face has a date with my doctor’s chisel. In fact, by the time most of you read this, I will most likely either be in surgery or already done. I’m starting to get upset. This is not my first surgery, far from it actually, but I’m

Thursday I’m Getting My Face Broken


I’m having surgery Thursday. As a child I caught a knee to the nose and sustained multiple more nose injuries during the course of my marriage. It took what should have been an awesome nose and turned it into a slightly less awesome nose that’s all messed up on the inside. I keep getting sick,

Abuse Firsthand


Reflections from the past, so far away, yet never far enough When “I do,” should have been “I don’t” His fist hit the solid wood closet door behind me with such force, I was sure it had cracked. Eyes glaring so intensely, yet not seeing me at all. Was this it? Is this how it
