I'm so sorry that you and your daughter have to go through this. Raising daughters is so much harder than raising boys. I have two of each. My daughter was in a drunk driving accident on her 20th birthday and is now a quadriplegic. Talk about going into depression! I know how you must be feeling and you are probably trying to blame this somehow on you. "What did I do wrong, didn't I do enough to prepare her for life - although you can never prepare someone for an act of violence". Your daughter was violated but so were you. He did this to you wonderful daughter and you feel her pain as well as your own. I've been there. I don't know how a mother survives such traumatic events such as rape or drunk driving accident happening to their daughters. My daughter's accident was 6 years ago and I'm still in pain.
If there is anything I can do, please let me know. It just takes time but your depression might need to be treated by a professional. It's not the type of depression that just goes away. Please seek help when you can.
Degenerative Disc Disease, Spinal Stenosis, Herniated Disc, Arthritis of the Spine, some kind of problem with the L5-S1 area, sciatica, diabetes, depression and anxiety.
Lord help me to remember that nothing will happen to me today that you and I can't handle together.
