#tbt This is me at 14. The age I was raped. It’s taken me 25 years to say those words. I wrote about it in my book. I finally told my parents and sister about it 4 months ago. Today is the day we are silent no more. All of us. I’m scared to post this. I can’t imagine what Dr. Ford is feeling right now.

You are brave, I believe you, and keeping these secrets only empowers abusers. You are awesome!!

I understand being scared but this took bravery. You sharing this hopefully will help you heal, and it’ll help so many others as well. I know it’s touched me.
