I was raped from the time I was 10 years old until the age of 18 by my mothers boyfriend at the time.
I ended up pregnant at 16 and delivering at 17, a beautiful amazing little boy who is now 6 1\2 years old. But as much as I try to forget, I can't. I suffer from bipolar depression, anxiety, P.T.S.D., and a form of psychosis due to the abuse I suffered.
He was arrested and sentenced to 10 years in prison; 5 for me 5 for my little sister who I later discovered he had been hurting as well.
Then I got married at 20 to a man who later became violent and abused me mentally emotionally and physically.
I swear everyday I try to get through, but I cant help but get even more depressed and feel like I need to die. I just need to hear I'm worth it. -Amber (Lexington, KY)
