    I need help

    1
    i feel like I am in a low place. I have posted once before with my story but I feel like I am at a stand still. I cannot bring myself to speak about what happened to me to anyone. I am married to the most wonderful man, but if I told him it would destroy him in every way. He could not handle the thoughts I think. I want more than anything to move past this and never think about it again but I...

    Anniversary

    1
    hi guys. Tomorrow is the two year anniversary. I suppressed everything for a year and a half and now I've sought help and told my family, the anniversary tomorrow is making me feel sick. I didn't feel like this last year, because I'd suppressed it, but now I feel scared and anxious and depressed. It's screwed up so many things since it happened and my confidence has sunk so much. I'm back at uni,...

    Flashbacks

    I was raped when I was 7 years old. By my big brother. The person who was suppose to protect me from bullies, love me, care about me. It's been 14 years, I am 20 years old. Since I turned 18, the flashbacks have gotten worse, more detailed, distressing me. I can't sleep. I don't want to eat because when they just pop into my head I collapse and cry and get into bed. I hug the blanket that I had...

    10 years on and still not sure if I was raped

    1
    I'm looking for advice about something that happened to me almost 10 years ago.Besides one ex-boyfriend, I've never told anyone what happened, I've tried not to think about it over the years but recently I just can't stop and it's getting me down.The worst part is that I don't even know if what happened to me can be called rape, because I didn't fight him or shout or scream or try to get away.I...

    I was raped by when I was a 22 year old virgin.

    3
    So... I think I should start off by saying that I wasn't just a virgin by happenstance, but went to great lengths to protect my virginity. That's why, when I was drugged and raped by fiance, it was so shocking... I thought I had finally found someone that I could trust; someone who shared my same values.When I was 22 years old; I entered the Job Corps to study nursing, because it was the only...

    Tell about rape or keep as is?

    hello. I have been training in jiu jitsu for a few weeks. I have told my coach that I was "assaulted" twice but didn't say rape. I've talked to him twice. He knows I don't like sparring with males and let's me sit out. Lately, he says a lot of things that are triggering. I was rethinking about telling him that is was rape so he could stop saying such triggering things, but wanted to see what...
  •    I am now 28 years old. My husband and I have one baby girl and a baby boy on the way. In the 4th grade I was groomed and molested by a teacher. Although it has taken me a very long time to process through those events I feel I have made progress in the healing process. When I was 18 I was violently gang raped and a good friend of mine was killed in front of me during that ordeal. After this...

    My story...

    Hello, I am new to this group. So I guess the best way to start is by sharing my story. In march of this year, I had surprised my best friend with tickets to see our favorite country band in a smaller venue downtown. My husband dropped us off to go to dinner before the concert. We had a great dinner and arrive to the concert venue at 7:30 that evening, with the show beginning at 8. We both...

     I'm new to this forum but I need to get this out. On July 21st of 2011, a cowardly excuse of a man named Doyle Carpenter raped me.  A lot of people may not see what he did to me as rape because I had gone to his apartment for dinner and had a few glasses of wine.  Let me assure you that I said no.  I tried to fight.  I tried to scream.  I eventually couldn't anymore and watched time tick...

    Forgiveness

    4
    I keep hearing "if you forgive it will set you free"...it hasn't worked for me yet. So, now I'm wondering did I not forgive completely? Then it brings up the question, "how do you fully forgive your rapist?" There are times when this question pops into my mind that I think, am I going backward in my healing process? So, I tend to tell myself that I'm healing from a different angle so the...

    Multiple Rapes

    4
    I've been raped on 3 different occasions by 3 different men. Does the fact that I've been raped more than once mean it's my fault? Like do I put myself in situations where this can happen to me? After the 3rd time I can feel myself getting worse and acting out. I feel like I'm swimming through a fog of thoughts and memories in my head. Zombie like at times. Does anyone else feel like this? Please...

    I was gang raped by three college guys at a party I went to back in June. I'm seventeen years old. I was in a car accident back at the end of April, and because I had been somewhere were I hadn't told my parents, I was grounded. I was ungrounded at the end of the school year; so, June. Being that the college was getting out for the summer as well, I went to many of those parties. I'm no where...
