I wish more of the #MeToo conversation focused on what happens after you're sexually assaulted. Our conversation right now is focused on what happens to the perpetrators. Let me tell you a little bit about what happened after I was raped.
First of all, I live a plane flight away from my family. So, after I called the police, I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, alone. One bright light in this horrible experience came via @rapevictimadv, who had a volunteer visit me in the hospital and stay with me.
So, I spent the night in the hospital getting a rape kit, and then wasn't sure what to do. I was raped at home, in my apartment, so the idea of going back there gave me panic attacks. Besides that, the police had taken half my bedroom as evidence.
