It was my first semester of college, only being there three months, I have made only a handful of friends. My roommate and I decided to go up to my friends dorm room, he was have a couple people over so we thought it would be fun to check out. Everyone had left except for myself, I decided to help my friends clean up. One of my "friends" who lived in the room was starting to flirt with me, which I didn't mind so my other "friend" who lived there decided to leave to give us some privacy that we didn't need. I found myself being dominated by my "friend" who had held me down and raped me. As I was telling him to stop his roommate and my "friend" came into the room while I was telling him this and he proceeded to do nothing. He finally stopped and I was able to get back to my room. Over the next week I found myself extremely depressed, lost all motivation and when my friends would ask me what happened I would just break down and cry. I was just unable to talk about it aloud and with the lack of privacy I had I felt like there was nowhere to turn. This is when I came across RAINN. They have a service where you can talk to someone online, just like you are talking to a friend on the internet. I told them every detail of the incident, told them what I was feeling, everything. It has been just over a year now since the incident and I believe without RAINN I would not be alive today to speak about how much they truly changed my life around, give me my power back as a woman and be able to come out as a stronger person.
