    Sexual Assault Need Other Women's Experiences

    Okay thank you everyone for your responses. I do not feel so alone now. I think it will take some time like many of you said for my brain to accept the reality. I am going to bring it up to my T.

If you aren't a female please do not continue reading this has taken a lot to muster the courage to post this in the first place. Some background I was sexually assaulted for years as a child. I am now 20 and...

    Feeling Alone

    Hey sorry I got off track for a little while and stopped checking here. I am doing okay. Still battling with some of these questions but I know it takes time and that really these are just wounds that need to heal. I’ve done some more opening up to my girlfriend which has helped a lot. Even...

    Feeling Alone

    I guess I want to start at the begging so you know my situation a bit. I am a college junior and over a year ago I took a child abuse class as a part of my major. I thought nothing of it tbh it’s stuff I read about and study all the time in the criminology field. But we did a case study and...

    Not Ready? Need to begin talking about what happened to me, but cancel appointments or talk about pointless things in therapy.

    I feel as if I am hitting a wall in T. I have canceled numerous appointments in the past couple of months as well as just not wanting to go. I'm pretty sure because I know what I need to do next and I just do not want to. I need to begin actually talking about the things that happened to me as a...

    Finished sophomore year of college

    Last week I finished my finals for my second year of college. I think I did pretty good. I’m expecting all A’s and one B in my honors class. Being a student in a pandemic has not been easy. Also a student in the middle of recovering traumatic memories and starting new medication and therapy. I...

    Why do we keep going?

    I often feel this way. It feels like your constantly losing an uphill battle. But with help that feeling comes around less and less often. I was sexually assaulted by an older relative for at least six years. It has taken me almost one year now of intense T to start to feel better. I’ll be...

    Getting anxiety from girlfriend being upset

    So recently I have had a few flashbacks and anxiety attacks when my girlfriend has done some things. For example she accidentally pushed against my leg in a weird position and I had a flashback ( I have cptsd). When I came out of it she was crying and really upset and was blaming herself for...

    3 Months of Weekly Therapy has dragged me out of the pit

    Thank you I have recently been starting trauma counseling over the last couple months for sexual assault from the age of 6-12 and T has been really discouraging. It seems that I keep uncovering more trauma with no end in sight. But this was a nice positive note by you to keep going.

    Therapy Making it worse

    Yes, I see a trauma therapist and I do think I need to discuss how badly these sessions have been affecting me. Thank you for the advice. I am still very new to this world and been keeping stuff hidden for a long time so it is really hard for me to open up when I'm truly hurting even to my T...

    Therapy Making it worse

    Yeah, see my biggest coping mechanism is sarcasm so when I'm leaving I'm "laughing" and distracted by my own jokes. Yet as soon as I get in the car to drive home and alone with my thoughts I start really spiraling. I think I need to start focusing on the current good things in my life at the end...

    Therapy Making it worse

    Thank you. I do have someone who helps to ground me on those really bad days. I have told my T but I think I have been holding back on how bad it is and that is obviously not helpful. I am going to be more open with how bad its been at my next session.

    Therapy Making it worse

    The past year or so has been really hard for me. I’m 19 and just started going to therapy for things that happened for years in my childhood. This year has been the first time I’ve admitted I needed help and that my anxiety and cptsd were out of control. (I didn’t know it was cptsd but makes...
