On 2/14/00, I was in a car accident and that was only the beginning of my problems. I sustained severe back, neck, shoulder and knee injuries and began physical therapy and massage therapy shortly thereafter. I had seen the massage therapist who I knew only as "Jack" and who the staff at the medical office also referred to as Jack about 8 times. I admit he did seem a little 'seedy' at first put I the overwhelming pains in my body allowed me to dismiss it and continue with the massage therapy because I wanted to get better.
"Jack" read my Doctor's notes and learned that I was prescribed Naproxin and Flexoril, a pain killer and a muscle relaxant. He kept asking me if I was taking them. I exlplained how drowsy they made me feel, he suggested that I take them anyway. Two visits after that, I noticed that he had a lot of oil on his hands and he was massaging me like normal. He asked me to turn over which was also normal for him to massage my shoulders and he made it seem as though his hands "slipped" across my breasts. I looked up at him in shock because nothing like that had ever happened before. He apologized and then began to massage my knee which I was scheduled to have surgery on in about 2 weeks. While massaging my knee I caught a cramp and the next thing I knew his hand was in my panties and he was trying to penetrte me with his finger. I sat up and I was terrified, I couldn't speak because no sound would come out of my mouth. He kissed me on my forehead and I immediately left the room. I put on my clothes and got out of there as fast as I could. I reported it to the police who arrested him and told me that "Jack" was not his real name and he had been working in the office using an alias.
I filed a civil suit against the owners of the physical therapy office. I suffered for that as well because at the time I was working for a U.S. Congressman in New York and the owners had given a substantial amount of money to his campaign in the past. The owners wife who is an attorney came to my job and cauzed a scene and accused me of trying to ruin her and her husband's business. One of my co-workers also told me that this woman threatened my boss that she and her husband would not give him any campaign money as long as I was on staff and so I lost my job because of this.
I am currently engaged in a nasty court battle with my former boss and the owners of the medical facility. My former boss is also a former Assistant District Attorney and has a lot of influence with the local district attorney. Needless to say a prosecutor who had just graduated law school and was admitted to the bar less than 2 months before this case went to trial, was assigned to handle the case. She never obtained any of my medical records and had them admitted into evidence, which would have proven this man's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt because he gave a sworn statement to teh police that he ws treating me for a 'groin injury.'
Needless to say, he was found not guilty because the inexperienced prosecutor failed to secure crucial evidence that would have brought my assailant to justice. Sorry this is so long, but don't buy what these groups tell you that we need more legislation. Having worked for a Congressman for 3 years and having him 'condone' rape through his actions towards me just shows that they don't give a damned about anyone but their families and their financial backers. If you don't financially back your politicians, don't expect any miracles through lobbying and phone calls. Your best bet is to encourage someone who has been personally affected by rape and is outraged to run for office, this way they will not be able to be 'bought,' by large conglomerates or others who are busy trying to push their own agendas. Thank you for listening.
I am increasingly becoming more aware of something which happened in my past. I believe that I was molested at some point. I have no real memories of my childhood before Kindergarden. I'm not sure who may have done it, and I don't really feel comfortable asking my mother. I also have reason to suspect that I was born intersexed and underwent surgery to remove some "female" parts. I believe that whatever happened to me has somehow contributed toward my gender dysphoria. I just wanted to share this so someone might think harder before getting any operations for an intersexed child.
I was 3 the first time I was abused my uncle made me perform oral sex on him. I didn't remember until this year.
I used to play house with my cousin, I always felt uncomfortable with him, I even told my school counselor that he was touching me she never said anything though. When I was 11 my world shattered. we went to an old car in the woods to play and he(I can't say it) it hurt so bad. it was my first time and I thought I was dying, I hoped I was. He continued to abuse me until this year-I am now 16. I have a problem with cutting myself, I've never shared my story with anyone. I hope someone can read this and feel better because my pain is killing me.
