My name is Sophie; I suffer from Asperger’sSyndrome and other mental health disorders and I am a victim/survivor of serious sexual and violent crime; which took place over a period of two years from 2010-2012 and it has dominated my life ever since..
When I was 17 I met a man who was in his 30’s who groomed me.
He subjected me to horrific sexual violence where I feared that my neck and back would break and he raped me repeatedly many times per day; he would scream into my face and dig his fingers into my eyes.
He tried to kill my puppy because he was jealous of her so I had to re-home her for her own safety.
I was issued an OSMAN letter from the police after he attacked me with a hunting knife thinking that I was having affairs behind his back; he held the knife to my throat and I thought that he was going to kill me.
After being held captive by this man where he made me sit on the sofa for 3 days where I was not allowed to move(only to be raped) or eat or drink. Whilst he was distracted pretending to be me texting my mother; I managed to escape where I ran to my parents’ house without any shoes on my feet and they called the police; where he was arrested,
I contemplated suicide many times as I felt that, that would be my only escape from him; I could not see no other way out and many times I thought I lost my own sanity.
I suffer from severe PTSD and have flashbacks all the time; I cannot eat, sleep or concentrate and I feel like I cannot connect with the people around me; I feel like an outcast as I have experienced things that they haven’t even dreamed of.
I do not leave my house and I cannot even contemplate ever being in another relationship. I feel uncared about and I feel that my voice is silenced.
