So I’ve realised that I need to finally take charge of my journey. Over the last few months I’ve made some positive progress, but there’s so much more I can do.
Seven years ago I had my breakdown and I have lived in that moment all this time. I’ve not tried as hard as I could. However now I have to take the bull by the horns and draw a line under my past. I realise the reporting it to the police was only one step. As the process is moving forward, I need to be strong and start to become a voice for all the survivors who for one reason or another can’t speak out.
When I started this, I had ideas of starting a charity or support group. This ambition is still there, but I need to put all of this to bed finally.
So 2018 hopefully I will at least start the process of dealing with my trauma.
