I hate that word.... - June 17th 2009, 03:58 AM

I hate the R word I cannot stand it. When it is used I crawl right out of my skin. I am going into counseling and I have a class that we have to talk about ourselves and I am fine because I can usually keep it mediocre but I want to share my story. I am thinking of emailing my professor and just be like this is this and that is that. This course requires us to talk about ourselves and I have avoided any topics that are touchy. Should I email him? I hate that word so much and when it is used like it was in class the other day, I crawled out of my skin and hummed to myself as I always do when I hear it. Now it is bothering me again. What do I do?

Let me try to understand, you're taking this class as a part of counseling?

Okay, fantastic. Now I understand. Well if you feel uncomfortable talking about it, you shouldn't have to. Keep in mind that counseling could indeed be very difficult. I'm sure you're aware of that. The point of counseling and related things is to allow you to overcome whatever it is that you're dealing with. By doing that, you have to face it head-on. That's never an easy thing.

I think you should email your professor and let him know what's going on. That way, he'll have an idea as to the way you're feeling and perhaps could suggest ways for you to overcome this. I think that you're doing a great thing by seeking help for yourself. Believe it or not, not many people would be able to do what you're doing now. You should feel proud. [:

Hey,

I think you should email your professor. Also, you don't have to refer to it by the R word. There are other things people call it. Assault. Ummm. Sexual Abuse. Etc. Your Professor might be able to help you come up with some ideas as well.
