Within my blog, I have written an article where I have talked about the time I was sexually assaulted (21 years the trigger). Recently I wrote the below poem going over how survivors like my self still live with the pain of the act. In my case, I got no justice yet I can still suffer from the cruel act that was forced upon me.
Although it was only 5 years ago I was diagnosed with depression, the trigger’s of the depression can go back years. The mind has an ability of placing traumas in a box and seal the lid. You can go years without even thinking about the issue you faced but then comes along an illness strong enough to burst open that lid.
