Still fighting

Posted by Iammealways , 07 October 2010 · 84 views

I am okay. I have my days. My perpetrator is still trying to convince me it wasn't rape. Lots of messed up stuff was told to me as a kid, and I'm fighting that off now. Having trust issues. Feeling afraid that I will get hurt again. My therapist is mad at me for crying about it. Feeling confused. My parents left me when I was young as well...

Different Perspective/Realization

Posted by Iammealways , 02 October 2010 · 87 views

I actually am looking back at things, reflecting on things, and even though it is painful, I am proud of myself for dealing with things, and proud of others here, who are trying their best to heal too. I think the hardest part in my life was the mental and emotional wounds that I didn't...

It is difficult, but started to reclaim myself again. Felt some unpleasant emotions while in t, but am looking at PTSD, what to do about it and stuff like that. Considering going back for a new semester, as well as options with employment. Doing small things I enjoy right now. I don't know how things will go, but am moving towards my life, and ow...

Hi there fellow survivors. My story is that I went on many years in denial or pretending that what happened to me wasn't significant. After it happened, I just said everything was okay I'm fine. I guess it didn't hit me until years later. The reason I have thought about it lately, is because I didn't think it had an effect on me as much...
