    My best guy friend of 26 years, knows i need money, right now. So, he’s pressured me into doing sexual favors for him, for money. I hate him. I hate myself. I never drink alcohol and I have to get drunk to do it. I start back to work this week, thank God. Don’t know how to deal with myself or him. I haven’t been with anyone for over 2 years. I hate sex and everything about it. And, he knows this. But, will still say I’ll pay you 100 dollars if you do this or that. I have bills to pay. Almost lost my car and that’s when I gave in. Some best friend. I can’t stand to look at him. I’ve never told anyone. Guess, I need some advice. Just hate my life. I’ve been doing things I wouldn’t dare ever do. He knows what kind of person I am and doesn’t care. I don’t know how deal with these feelings.

    • I am so sorry you have had to go through something so traumatic. You have the power to say no and to put up a boundary to keep him out of your life. As you said, “some best friend.” A true friend would not have taken advantage of you like this. As you say no to him I believe you will begin to repair your self-respect and heal from this. You are worth so much more.
