sexual abuse **Trigger**

I find that since remembering the attack, I get really scared of the same thing, or worse, happening again. I have nightmares about it. Just wondered if anyone had experienced the same?

i was sexually abused and it was a very long time ago but i still now get nightmares about it and think its going to happen again. *hugs* i know its hard but you have to try to get it out of your mind and not think about it



I'm tired of trying
I'm tired of lying
I know i've been smiling
But inside im dying

Yeah, i get nightmares and flashbacks, especially recently, coz i've seen my abuse more often. it's difficult but you can get it under control, mine are still fairly frequent, but i've heard of people who have managed to conrtol it, and thats what i'm gonna try and do, once exams are out the way. *hugs* you can get through this

Take care xx



For those doubts that swirl all around us
For those lives that tear at the seams
We know… we’re not what we’ve seen

For this dance we’ll move with each other
There ain’t no other step than one foot
Right in front of the other

yeap, i get this alot... I even broke up with my ex-boyfriend about 6 months ago because of it, he reminded me of the guy so much
i think most people try to avoid this situation again.

Yeah I still get flashbacks quite reguarly, so you are not alone in that. Have you ever spoken to anyone about what happened? If not you might find some counselling beneficial for you. If you wanna talk just PM me.
take care of yourself hugs kat

as above..i think that talking to someone and getting counselling will help you with the fear and memories..and yes it's normal to be scared that it will happen again, its like any traumatic event, we are constantly expecting it to happen again. like having a car accident or getting mugged etc. you need to work through it hun and then things should get easier.
pls take care xoxoxox



Do not follow the common path.....go where there is no path and leave a trail.....

Ur not alone. ..
Since my abuser was arrested I’ve had flashbacks & night mares. (actually it stated b4 with the night mares but they got worse for some reason after... L dk y ) Some worse than others. Some realistic and others almost like a horror movie (I don’t watch horror movies). I got put on sleeping pill because I stopped sleeping at all. I couldn’t sleep because I was too stressed / scared/ about wut I might dream.
I have wired sleeping patterns.. I sleep better in the day with people being loud and noisy. When me and my gf watch tv or movies I always fall asleep on her.
I also have a wired thing about closed doors. (night time or day time.. I just hate closed doors)
