Do you have support? - September 12th 2010, 06:51 PM

We all know that support is invaluable and extremely helpful when healing after abuse.. that being said, how many of you have at least one person you trust or feel comfortable talking to about rape or abuse? And do you find your support is mostly online or in real-life, or a mix?

how could anyone ever tell you, you are anything less than beautiful?| PM Me

My support is mostly online... I tried to get real life support and the people who I told basically told me to get lost... I have 1 friend in real life that is support and a few online who I can tell anything.

If you ever need somebody to talk to pm/vm me.

Support for victims of sexual assault or abuse can be found here start the healing

My support is a mix of people online and people in real life. I am very thankful for all of them. I don't know where I'd be now if it wasn't for their compassion.

My support is mostly online but I also have my therapist and that helps immensely. While the support I get online is invaluable, being able to talk to others who can understand what I am going through and such, the support I get from my therapist is really helpful as well. It is soooooo helpful to see someone get mad for me, not be afraid to talk about what happened etc.

Honestly the only support I've ever had is from TH and people online. Which is really sad because I have a huge family - lots of aunts/uncles/cousins.

To you, everything's funny. - -
I'd give all I have, honey. - If you could stay like that.
Stay this little. - - I won't let nobody hurt you.
Just try to never grow up. - - Never grow up.

My support is a combinaton of real life and on-line. I would say 60/40.

I have a therapist. I had a best friend, but she moved. I mostly just write my feelings down on here. It is probably the most honest I am with anyone, including myself.

I have a mixture of people that I can talk to. I get help online, but also applied for counselling for it and I see the lady once a week.
Family... well mums the only one that knows but doesn't really know what to do.
A few friends know and don't talk about it.
