It’s not easy to find any way of summarising any form of abuse and my story is long, complicated and worthy of as many words as I want to use to express it.
But this is a new blog for me and I want to test my ability to put the words out there.
At the age of twelve I was groomed, coersed into taking many types of drugs to make me compliant and raped. This happened multiple times over four months and physical assault also played a part. I told no-one for nearly 30 years.
I want to use my voice (hence the site name) so I can help myself process it all and for the main reason that it’s my choice now. I am an adult and the shame isn’t mine, I can tell who I want if i choose to.
