I just need someone to talk to for now. (Potentially triggering) - February 4th 2009, 06:10 PM

I used to cut (quite frequently) and I haven't for the past 2-3 months since I've been living with my grandparents. So my little sister got raped a few weeks ago, and we've been going through the process of getting the guy in jail. So far so good, especially since my sisters friend was also raped by him and is testifying. He's in jail, and this hasn't stressed me to point of cutting. The thoughts have came up but I managed to push them back. Well, my grandparents haven't been getting along, and my grandmother is hurting from a disease and infection so she's a bit irritable. We took my sister and the other girl to the OB/GYN and they tested the girls for any STD's known to man. Today the girls mother called because her daughter had to have another pap smear...and the poor thing has genital warts. Now I know this is no where near comparable to having AIDS or HIV, but it's still a major thing. Especially since my sister is already suffering from PTSD. I called to let my mom know that since my sister was raped after the girl, there is a possibilty that my sister may have genital warts. Well my mom just says it's no big deal and at least it's not AIDS. But it is a big deal! So we got into it over the phone and I hung up on her. Now, I'm so stressed out that the entire time I went to go pick up food, all I could think about was cutting. I prayed to God to help me, and that's when I remembered this site. As of right now, I just need someone to talk to me so I can keep clean and not cut. If I do cut again, I'll be shipped off to Illinois for a recovery center, and I really don't want that.

hey chrissy.

i understand that you'd feel sad right now.. you've been through a lot. just remember tha you'll always have our support and the rest of your family WILL be there to support you too. in case there's any time in which you feel you need someone to talk to, you can definitely come to talk to us.. DEFINITELY. I know that it WILL all get better, and thats a promise.

I read the whole thing and i am sad that this happened .. however, i'm confident that genital warts can be cured. Besides that, it is definitely important for you to stay strong and support your sister... she needs someone to support her the most at times like these... spend more time with her.. and do stuff like read a book and all that together.

the knowledge that there's someone who's willing to listen , no matter what, helps a LOT. thats the most important thing right now..

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!
