I was physically assaulted a while back. I haven't discussed it. I told my therapist about it recently and she offered to come with me to my court appearance as support. Part of me wants her to be there, but part of me realizes I likely will be a wreck and not fit to be around anyone. It brings up old history for me... the assault makes me so aware of how quickly things can go wrong and how out of control we really are. I have tried desperately to make the assault its own singular event and not let it get mixed up with history. As the court date draws closer it is harder... I am really trying not to dramatize things and make them larger than they really are.
