I’ve struggled with mental health issues – anxiety, depression, BPD – since I was 14. At the worst of it – I was raped. That was nearly 10 years ago. When I first remembered in 2013 I did a lot of blogging on my blogger and chatted with other survivors from the SVU fandom to all kinds of contacts I never thought I’d have.
I never ever saw myself telling my story on the radio or reporting my rape.
I’ve come so far and still the most important thing to me for survivors of abuse and mental illness to have a safe place!
