TEEN Mom Farrah Abraham claimed an alleged sexual assault by a politician left her “on five medications” and “always confused” in her new memoir.
Farrah, 33, filed a police report against Dominic Foppoli, the mayor of Windsor, California, for sexual battery in April.

Nine women, including the reality star, accused the mayor of sexual misconduct, as Farrah’s attorney claimed he assaulted her while they were visiting the area in March.
Dominic resigned from his position and said of Farrah’s claims: "I have no doubt she is making these allegations in an attempt to leverage the situation to her advantage.”
In an excerpt from her memoir Dream Twenties: Self Guided Self Help Memoir exclusively obtained by The Sun, Farrah opened up about how she’s coping months after the alleged March incident.
She claimed: “I was sexually assaulted in the last months of myself being in my 20’s. Becoming a victim of sexual assault has changed my life. It had me push back this book release, it has me taking more time and realizing I am not at the capacity I used to be at.
“It has me canceling my birthday parties, it has me on five or more medications, it has me going to see all sorts of doctors some I’ve never even heard the name of their specialty, but my brain is always confused so it hurts when an investigator or a police officer says that something of mine doesn’t make any sense when I’m trying my hardest, but who wouldn’t make sense when they’ve been drugged and knocked out.
“I guess what I’m saying is everybody who thinks they know what sexual assault feels like but doesn’t, it does not stop feeling like it for months or years sometimes. It really hurts when I think back and I know some of my other friends have been sexually assaulted and I thought I knew what that felt like. I thought I knew how to support them, but I actually now know I let them down horribly.”
Farrah continued to pen: “So I just wanted to share being sexually assaulted changes peoples lives, brains in every way every day. I’m more aware now of men who are going to hurt women, I am more aware of all the abuse and all the mental illness I let surround myself growing up and through my adulthood, it’s not OK."
Farrah claimed how when she reported the alleged incident, the police officer who met her at the Rape Victim Treatment Center told her she did the “right thing coming forward.”
She continued that she is “making a difference in changing history” by signing the Marsy’s Law, which makes sure victims have equal and constitutional rights that are the same as those accused or convicted
Farrah also signed another law that "protects our identities.”
She added: “Behold the rapist in my case used my name in his public statement and he didn’t mention all of the eight other women who also came forward at that time not to mention other victims who still have not come forward.”
The alleged incident has motivated her to run for a government position, which she announced in May.
She explained in her book: “With this past year’s sexual assault life-changing experience with a government official, that yes I am, I am applying for a position in government, I couldn’t imagine seeing any other government official getting away with wrongly speaking for a city, infecting criminal activities by spreading rape culture not only in their state but other states, and why have the government infect our communities even worse than stated above.
“So if some man can hold a job as a public government official I believe I'm 1,000% more qualified for a public government position. I already had the blessing of growing up and supporting city council meetings, helping historical national preservation in districts, creating a safer community, and not to mention being nationally and internationally has shed light on many if not everything we need for our world to be it’s healthiest and healing.”
Also in her memoir, Farrah revealed the time Child Protective Services threatened to take her daughter Sophia, now 12, away from her.
In the tell all, she discussed her mother Debra Danielsen’s domestic abuse arrest against her back in 2010.
She wrote: “I got kicked out of my house after calling the police for domestic violence, yet the police pulled out a gun and said he was going to shoot my mom while pointing at her head, yet my mom had two kitchen knives in her hands, and I was bloody when I had to talk them both into calming down.
“The cycle of trauma and violence would not continue or someone was literally [going] to die over a call to stop violence.”
Farrah, who was 18 at the time, claimed the arrest led to being "threatened by CPS to take my child because of elders' actions that were unsafe.”
She wrote that she lived out of her car with Sophia for a couple of days.
According to reports, Debra allegedly grabbed her daughter by the throat and "hit her along the side of her head and hit her in the mouth” with Sophia present.
Debra pleaded guilty and got a suspended sentence of 30 days in jail along with probation.
The two are on good terms today after years of being estranged on and off.
