It was two years ago when I was forced by my boyfriend to do something which is against my will and threatened me that he will leave me if I didn't give what he wanted. And so, I did it with deep sadness and guilt. What happened caused me public humiliation as everyone knew what happened. It ruined my image at school and the worst, I suffered and continues to suffer from major depression. Aside from the clinical depression, I was diagnosed to have a Bipolar Disorder. Is there a legal action needed to be taken towards this? Please help me because this is the only way I will be at peace.
I have consulted some lawyers and they said that it was rape. However, if I do not want to file a case, the last lawyer I consulted advised me to ask for my ex boyfriend to pay for the medical fees I covered for psychiatric therapy I am having. Up until now, I am still undergoing medications and therapy sessions with the psychiatrist. Is this all I can do? I am hoping that you will be able read this mail and respond to it.
Thank you very much.
