I sat silently. I couldn't do anything, say anything. I couldn't breathe. My mind told me to say something, it screamed at me. But I couldn't move, I was frozen.
I wanted him to stop, I really did. But I couldn't make him. I didn't want to start a scene, I didn't want him to do this to me either. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't scream.
And now any time that anyone touches me, I jump out of my skin and am breathless again. I'm broken and I don't know how to fix it.
I can barely keep breathing day to day, and it just gets harder. I know what I'm supposed to do, but I can't. I just-- can't.
