My anniversary of the day I was raped is only a few days away. I HAVE to stay functional, even though all I want is drop off the face of the damn world. I have a job, and I need to keep on track, I can't just disappear like I want to for a couple days. So how do I handle it? My therapist says I should repeat this every day: "It's 2009, it was 7 years ago, it's not happening now and I'm moving on". But it DOES feel like it's happening sometimes, and I don't KNOW how to move on. I know I have to really want to get past this, and I DO, but everyone makes it sound so easy and it's not! You all know that. People tell you you need to "get past it" "move on" "get over it"... that's all well and good, but HOW do you do that?!?! I'd really like the answer to this.
