    Sexual Assault does anyone understand me? new cocsa memories

    I'm wondering if anyone else has had new memories pop up on top of existing trauma? Basically I've been speaking about being sexually assaulted by my cousin for years. I've been to therapy - ended up not helping much but I did go for my alotted number of sessions and I'm working on it but still...

    Sexual Assault I have really disturbing unwanted thoughts about abuse and CSA

I first stopped being around children for like a year by going to a new place, not next to a...

    nightmares about people who didn't assault me

    It's interesting what our brains can do, even though I wish there wasn't a reason for us to have do head gymnastics to avoid anymore hurt after trauma. I hope your nightmares can get better for you over time, they aren't at all pleasant to experience.

    Undiagnosed Hi, I hope to feel less alone with sexual trauma

    I've seen a lot of ppl online talking about EMDR but I don't really know how much of anything works or how to get there tbh. There's also the possible differences between countries. Ig I will be making notes to find out any of my options as I am already planning to ask how to check if the person...

    Undiagnosed Hi, I hope to feel less alone with sexual trauma

    Hi, I'll go by Fox or Rye, doesn't matter much. When I was a teen, I was sexually harassed by my younger cousin, which I told my mum about. She told me it was nothing. He sexually assaulted me over the holidays. This only happened once, technically, since I think everything else goes under...
