I was in a very abusive relationship, and he not only hurt me, but allowed his friends to have "fun" with me too. I thank God that I was able to get out of the relationship before he killed me. I have been out of that situation for a few years now, and decided to pick myself up and try to move on. I decided to go back to school (which was a huge, hard decision for me to make). I was accepted at a private religous university. I thought that this was going to be what I needed in my life. However, after a few semesters the Dean of the University found out about my previous past of abuse and rape, and kicked me out of school because I had sex outside of marriage, and I used self Injury as a coping mechanism. He said I was a threat to myself and the community. I tried protesting saying that I didnt ask or willingly participate in what my boyfriend did to me, but I was robbed of that right. And as far as my self injury went, nobody knew about it. I didnt tell a soul or show anybody it. It was a way of dealing with the hell that I went through. It didnt matter to the dean though. I am so frustrated, because my therapist tells me that there was nothing I could have done, it happened - he chose to beat me, but a University of God is telling me that I allowed it to happen. I dont really understand why I am in trouble, and I question all the time if I really tried to put up a good fight. I live with the fear, the flashbacks, the nightmares everyday, its hard to just get out of bed in the morning, so I cant figure out why I am being punished for something I really had no control over.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
