Please? - January 30th 2010, 12:39 AM

A lot of people have been mentioning rape in conversations lately, and I try to change the subject, but it still affects me.

It's affecting my sex life actually ><

Any ideas?

Either change the subject or walk away. It's going to effect you. I wish I had the right words, but I don't. Talking about it with your boyfriend might help, especially if you tell him to be patient and gentle. You could also try telling the people who are talking about rape, that it bothers you, and could they please talk about something else.

If you need anything, feel free to pm me.

Hey Mystery,

If it's your friends who have been mentioning rape and abuse a lot, then I think you should be open with them, and let them know that it's a triggering subject for you. They should be able to accept this if not understand, and will hopefully be careful to stay clear of the topic.

If they are acquaintances who you do not feel comfortable sharing your feelings on the topic with, there's nothing wrong with just giving them a quick "I have to go" and simply walking away. You don't need to allow yourself to be in situations that are uncomfortable to you. If changing the subject doesn't work, the best thing you can do is remove yourself from the conversation completely.

I hope this helps. PM me if you ever need to talk. Hang in there!
