4 years ago when i was 13 i was assulted at the local fair. I lost nearly all my friends and nasty rumours were started about me. For about 3 years i seemed to cope with it fine when sex wasnt really a part of relationships due to our age. But now i seem to be terrified of the thought of entering any form of relationship with a man. I can be friends with a man but as soon as they show any sign of affection of interest in me in a sexual way i just block them out of my life. In the past year i feel really depressed and think about what has happened to me a lot. I get images in my head of what happened when certain words are said that he said to me. I dont want to go to the doctors or seek help from anyone becuase i dont want to upset my parent through them knowing I cant cope with what happened. Does anyone else feel this way becasue i feel like i am the only one.
