So, I told you all yesterday was the anniversary of my rape. 7 years have gone by, and sometimes it feels as though it were yesterday. I had no idea how I was going to get through it. Every year, I do the same thing- take off work or school and lay in my bed, under my covers all day, reliving the night and wondering if I'll be able to get through it. But yesterday was the first year I didn't do that. I got up, had breakfast with a friend, went to a doctor's appointment, came to work, and then went out for drinks with a coworker. I didn't let it keep me down, and I went on with my life. And you know what? I got through it, and it was actually easier than other years when I allowed it to consume me entirely. I won't say it was easy, and I won't say today isn't a little hard... but the point is, I CAN make it through- we can ALL make it through! And that's a good thing to know. We are all survivors, and it can't keep us down for long.
