My story

Recommended Posts


A bit over 2 years ago, I went out with a group of friends and didn't drink anything alcoholic. Someone who'd we just met bought us all drinks. He got me a soft drink and spiked my drink with a rape drug (as I realised afterwards). I quickly got extremely sick (couldn't stop vomiting) and he offered to take me home. What I remember from the following hours are flashes of throwing up in a taxi, unwillingly having sex with immense pain in my vagina and myself shouting "No, stop! I don't want to!". The following morning, he was still there and was nervous and apologetic. I felt weak and sick and didn't understand what had happened and he said the bartender must have spiked my drink. I understood from his facial expression that he was lying.. He had done it himself on purpose. I tried to remain calm and asked if we had had unprotected sex and he confirmed we did. He then left. I was happy to still be alive but felt the worst I'd ever felt in my life. I stayed in bed the entire week and only went out to buy a morning after pill and pregnancy test. I wasn't pregnant. I looked at my area down there using a mirror and noticed it was red and looked bruised and there were wounds. After a week of panic, pain and crying, I decided to seek help and went to the doctor for numerous checks. He could tell that a lot of force had been used as there where some tears in the tissue of my vagina and the area was red. I remember the guy having what looked like herpes near his eye and was really worried. I've been tested for all STDs over the course of 8 months using swabs and blood tests twice and was clean. After my vagina started to heal, I began to have cold sores on my index finger. The doctor didn't know what it was as it's not very common, but it turned out to be a herpetic whitlow. It hurt like hell. The whitlow returned every month around my period and reminded me of the rape every time. It was awful. However, after a year, the symptoms stopped returning and I haven't had them ever since. So for you out there with a similar condition; there is hope.

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
