I am glad to see there is a section on this forum for the topic of Rape and Abuse. I was sexual abused at aged seven and it went on for two years. I did not understand what was happening but in the last eight years I never forgotten what was done to me. At fifteen I was raped by an ex boyfriend. He was underage therefore could not be prosecuted. He was fourteen and surely he knew what he was doing? He commited a crime and because of his age he could not be charged. Does that mean what he did was okay? He is free to go and do it all again. That is what hurts me the most. He completely broke my trust and ruined the confidence I had left after the abuse. I have never stopped thinking about it and he forced me to change my way of life and nothing will ever give me back what I had. I lost friends and people I really cared about and I can never get them back. So can we really move on from rape and abuse?
