Unhappy Dreams/ Flashbacks - September 28th 2010, 01:44 AM

When I was 3 my dad started raping me it ended when i was 9 or 10 only because he left. A few months ago I started having flashbacks everytime me and my now ex fiance tried to do anything related to sex. After we broke up they stopped. Now I'm starting to have dreams/ flashbacks about the rape every night. Somehow my ex got in it the last 2 nights. They started Friday night and they won't go away. Last night I got 20 mins of sleep because of them and had to get through school with hardly any sleep. I know I'm not over my ex yet, but I thought I was dealing with the rape. I talked to my conselor about it today and she said that I probably having them because my dad is suppose to be in the same town as me October 8th and I'm freaking out over it. How do I get them to go away?

My suggestion is to continue working with your counselor. I wish I could add more, but talking with someone will definitely help a lot.

I was molested by my step father from age 5 to age 17.
It will always be there in some fashion, but if you work through it, don't push out other men because of it, if you tell them they will most likely be willing to help you through the issues.

Mary is right, you should continue working with your counselor, I wish I had someone when I was going through flashbacks, ect.

They will happen from time to time, but stay positive and they will stay away.
