Counselling

Posted by DbikGiizisKwe , 20 July 2014 · 55 views

I've finally caved, and I've started counselling. I thought before that getting counselling would mean I would have to tell my parents, but after 2 years of suppression (from the rape) and 5 years of suppression (from the three year bought of sexual assault) I decided maybe it was time.
I am finding it really really tough to open up to my counselor. I can give the facts pretty easily but I just can't get out of my cycle of being in complete control of hiding my emotions. I just want to open up to her and tell her how broken I am... How I feel so disgusting, at fault, dirty, tempting... everything. 
 
Maybe tomorrow at my next session I'll be able to open up a tad more. 
*Sigh* Here's hoping, fingers are crossed. 



Glad you are in counseling, we don't trust easily - and have kept emotions hidden for so long it is hard. Be proud to took the step to go it takes courage. Maybe you could show her this post? Stick with it you are on the right track El
