Re: sexually abused and raped - September 22nd 2013, 01:55 PM

Hey there

I'm so sorry this happened to you. I know how much it hurts. I want to let you know that this is not your fault - you didn't have control over these instances. Often times, people don't believe that people younger than others can do this kind of thing but they can. It's terrible that they didn't believe you, but you know the truth. Is it possible for you to go to the doctor's and get checked for injuries or any kind of scaring down there?

If your boyfriend treated you like that, that's his own fault. He's missing out on such a great person. Nightmares are hard to deal with. What I recommend is doing something peaceful before going to sleep. Listen to soft music, read a book, etc. If the nightmare happens to wake you up, try to ground yourself. Hold a childhood stuffed toy, that kind of thing to remind yourself that you survived the abuse and that you're still here.

I'm here if you need anything.

you cannot withstand the storm
