    Hey there Dodietrash,

    I'm so sorry you had to go through that, it's horrible.

    If you haven't already, I'd recommend reading Childline's article on 'Rape and sexual assault', I think you'll find it helpful. If you feel comfortable talking to someone you trust, or a Childline counsellor, then I think that might be helpful too.

    I wish you the best of luck getting through this. Things will get better. Stay strong, and take care <3
