Unhappy still trying to cope.... - April 5th 2010, 05:32 PM

back in november, i was raped....i had gone to a party and had one drink. that was it. i must have set it down at some point because i guess someone put something in it. i was raped that night. i woke up naked and alone. and i didnt report it. i didnt tell anyone except two friends. and now i'm still trying to cope. my friends seem to have forgotten about it. they dont talk to me much about it. i guess its because i dont talk about it with them. they dont know that i'm still having trouble coping with it. i dont know how to forget it.

Hey honey, I was raped few years ago and I ain't got over it but you should realise that you aren't pregnant or anything and I know it'll take time to get over it, it took me 6 months to over come it but what I did was block out the thoughts in my head and focus on school friends and I suggest you to go to peace place and think things through and block the bad things out.

I'm here if you need me. Just PM me. x

Hey there Alyssa. I'm sorry you have had to go through this. Sexual assault is such a hard thing to cope with. And I just wanted to say that what happened was not your fault and I hope you aren't blaming yourself for any of it.

I'm really glad that you were able to talk to some of your friends about it though. That can be really hard and I'm proud of you for being able to open up. I think the best thing you can do for yourself is to keep talking about it. Pushing it down and burying it may help for awhile, but I truly think that in the long run it just makes things harder to deal with. Seeing a counselor or therapist could really help you too. They are trained to help people work through these sort of things and you really do deserve that support. Also, I don't know what your relationship is like with your parents, but you might try talking to them. It's so much easier to heal when you have a lot of support behind you and I'm sure your family would want to be there for you.

And remember that everyone heals at their own pace. What one person can put behind them in a few months, takes other people years. Give yourself time and keep talking.

I hope you're doing okay right now. You can PM me anytime if you want to talk.
<3 Emily
