I was raped.

I'm 14 and just gave birth to my daughter. I love her to death but I didn't want her, you see I wasn't the type of girl to be fooling around with guys I was raped. It was the worst experience of my life and at the moment I would rather not go into detail but they got the man and 2 weeks ago they said he was guilty and is now serving life for what he did to me.
Girls I want to tell you something; if a doctor tells you, "you're lucky this or that didn't happen to you", we are not lucky we are just strong and we are all strong enough to get through this.
I want you to know that you are not alone. I know I sound like I'm over this but I'm not, yes I'm scared to leave the house, and yes I have nightmares, and yes I feel sick just talking to men but one day we will get over this.
your strong friend.
