How do I handle this situation?

Posted by SomebodyLoveMe , 10 June 2013 · 120 views

I made so much progress on this matter, but I've found myself regressing and I'm not sure why. I feel like I'm back to square one. My skin crawls when I hear, or even see, "the R word." It's really frustrating because people at work will say it and I'll get terribly uncomfortable, but I can't explain why without exposing one of the worst experiences in my life. People joke about it like it never happens, but even the people who are sensitive to your feelings still don't can't understand it. What am I supposed to do?

Hi SomebodyLoveMe, I don't know if I have an answer, because unfortunately I don't know if there's anything we can do about any of this. However, I'm hoping some solidarity will help. I absolutely understand how you feel, I'm in a similar situation.It sucks so much, and it makes it hard to share with them. I'm going to be talking to my T about it tomorrow, if she has some good advice I'm happy to share if you'd like.
