Denouncing your sexual assault or sexual harassment usually means being placed in a temporary medical category if you are seeking care, a long trial with little outcome, a relocation to avoid working with the perpetrator, medication and the pressure to wean of it all before getting labelled with a permanent medical category and a release from not meeting the universality of services. During a release, you are usually faced with another relocation, repeating your story now to Veterans Affairs to seek care from them, going back to school, find a new career, new friends and accept that the life as you knew it, your plan, the career you spent years to built and dream are gone. There is also strong acceptance required to accept that, you are out, but the perpetrator usually goes free for lack of proof. How does someone deals with all that? Read this blog to find out.
