I was raped a few years back. I've been hospitalized because my friends and family apparently think it has made me crazy. I'm not crazy, I'm living! This website, along with others, was given to me by a good friend when I asked where I could get support from people who ACTUALLY know how it feels. So many people I am around are so science oriented, they forget what happens to people psychologically rather than physically and chemically. I need emotions, I need life, I need to not be invisible. I disappear so well that I feel like I could blend in with my surroundings... again, I am just talking, NOT crazy!! I just feel empty, like a body. I came here for support, and really to listen. I want to listen to what works and doesn't work and the trials and struggles that people have. I want to be past this already... I just need some help. My counselor is great, but it doesn't do the trick. Coming here is a real leap of faith for me.
