Alicia's new beginning
Organized by: Alicia Dickerson
My name is Alicia. I'm 25 years old. Here's my story... In March of this year I was raped by my drunken ex boyfriend in my apartment. He has managed to continue the trial twice now, but wants a deal. I continued working at the hospital ,but I slowly started to become worse, breaking down at the hospital, being paranoid, deep depression, horrible paralyzing anxiety. Nightmares so awful I wet my bed. His mother stalking me. I moved to the town over thanks to my brother. I found out that my rapist lives just 4 minutes from me. After that night I lost everything. I lost my independence, I lost my self esteem, I lost my hard working job. I only gained shame, guilt, nightmares, depression, poverty. I literally have no one. My family lost hope in me. My mother believes in me, she checks on me every day, but she is disabled with a brain tumor... and my only wish is to be near her. I do not have a car due to a past of seizures. Otherwise I'd pack my things in there and go. I've tried all the resources I could possibly find... and this is my last hope.
