I was raped on a business trip
I'm a 25 year old woman and advertising assistant for a fairly large company. Just a couple of weeks ago, the company sent me on an out of town business trip. My husband couldn't arrange his schedule to come with me, so I made the trip by myself.
On the last night before I was scheduled to return home, I went to bed early since my flight out was fairly early in the morning. I was asleep by ten o'clock. About an hour later, I was awakened by a naked man wearing a ski mask, grabbing me by my hair and putting his hand over my mouth. I tried to struggle, but he had me pinned to the bed and I couldn't move. He told me not to scream and to do what he said and I wouldn't be hurt. He tore off my nightgown and my panties, forced me to perform oral s** on him, and then raped me. When he was finished, he told me to wait ten minutes before I left the room.
When he was gone, I got up off the bed, dressed, and went to a nearby hospital to have a rape kit done. I filed a report with the police, then eventually flew back home. I don't even remember flying back home, but after I got home, I told my husband what had happened, and after having finally gotten it out, I cried while he held me. I returned to work, but right now I feel as though I am just going through the motions...I feel numb and depressed, and even though my husband is being supportive, I just wonder how long it will be before I start feeling like myself again.
