Thank You Lady Gaga
It was so wonderful to hear Lady Gaga share with the world her struggles with PTSD due to her being sexually assaulted. She was raped at the age of 19 and she never told anyone. Today, she wants the world to know secrets keep you sick and ashamed.
I was saddened for her experience but I was thankful to learn that someone besides me has experienced PTSD not because of war but because of sexual assault. I have suffered with PTSD my entire life; I just didn’t know what it was. I just knew inwardly I was in trouble.
Sexual abuse at a young age is the catalyst for many men and women to become candidates for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Not knowing this is why you are paining and suffering within is great turmoil. To finally give it a label is hope and healing for the rest of your life’s journey. Don’t stop here. Begin here with the truth of what is making you who you are and like me and Lady Gaga, embrace it. You have great things to do if it is no more than letting someone else knows he or she is really OK. Together, we can be a light shining in the dark.
Lady Gaga shares for the first time her secret of sexual abuse.
