My initial trauma and the one that keeps recurring in my mind at certain times, was a molestation, but nothing as terrible or severe as most have experienced here. Between those incidences and now, I have been date raped and had two incidents of attempted stranger rape in public. Does anyone think that compounding experiences have worsened or caused their PTSD? I'm new, here, so forgive me if this is a dumb question. And yes, I'll discuss this with my therapist on the next visit.
