Speaking out has helped me process everything I went through. This has been a long journey with growth and education, realizations and acceptance at each step. The massive abuse that I experienced became clearer with each passing day. Below are some of the podcasts in which I’ve participated, selflessly sharing my story to help myself and others while also processing it all along the way. Thank you to everyone that helped elevate my voice and stood with me in this fight. Survivors of extreme sexual assault are often left with PTSD, depression, anxiety and disassociative symptoms like memory repression. This causes problems with daily living, memory and functioning. Today I have finally learned to process and live with the trauma, but the effects are lifelong.
