Hey everyone, it’s Jamie.
I’ve been in Ohio visiting my boyfriend, which turned out to be for two months instead of two weeks (hence why I haven’t been posting or anything), and I’m actually moving there to be with him. As people have told me before, you cannot heal in the same place where you’ve been hurt, so I know for a fact it’s the right thing to do for my mental state of mind.
As he tells me, yes I’ll always have those memories of the rape, but starting fresh in a new place and creating new memories for myself is what I need. It’s great to finally have someone in my corner who helps me cope with the flashbacks. With him, and new goals in life, I know I’ll be okay.
