I finally told my counselor about when my stepdad attacked and raped me and it was the hardest thing that i have ever done. Now I feel ashamed and very alone and having a hard time with the feelings that it brought up. I am not sure what to do with the emotion. I normally would resort to cutting but as I am trying to put a lot of effort into stopping that behavior I am at a loss. I just want to run from the emotions but know that won't help but at the same time I am having a hard time releasing them in a positive way. I tried writing expressively and tried art but the emotions are to strong for me to focus and wish that I had a stronger support network but my family won't even believe me and am not sure what to do. Does anyone else get this way?
