Going back to how I was - August 14th 2009, 11:15 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'v been sexually and physically abused by 3 different people. Before it happened I was a completely different person. I used to go to parties and just mix with everyone and never gave a damn about anything. I just had fun all the time and never really worried. Then I made a few really bad decisions. Now I'm scared all the time, I don't even believe that my best friend likes me, I never go to parties. I have flash backs all the time, and I hallucinate.
I had a really good day out with my best friends the other day, and I ended up crying over the food (its caused a eating disorder) and I also had a major panic attack and flashback. It seems like I can't even have fun anymore. My lifes just one big flashback. I feel like I am never going to get over this. I have medication, weekly therapy, group therapy, and I spent 4 months in a psychiatric unit this year. Nothing seems to help, if anything else I feel worse. Am I ever going to go back to how I used to be? I'm sick of being scared all the time...

h is a bluebird that you see from afar
it is real and as sure as the first evening star
can't touch it, or buy it, or lock it up tight
but its there just the same
making things turn out right

Hey Annie,

I want you to know that you can get better. I know it might not seem like it right now but it can happen; just keep going to therapy and group. Talking about it really can help. People who have been abused heal in their own way and on their own time so please give yourself time. If you rush it things might get worse (I learned that the hard way).

Annie, I hope this helped and please hang in there.
