This might sound rather stupid, but I don't know what to do about it. In my English class, the book we're discussing has a section that involves rape, and when we discussed it today, I started shaking and I was almost crying in the middle of class. Everyone was staring at me and the teacher asked me to talk to him after class about it. I started at a new school this year so no one knows what happened to me (I was raped two years ago when I was 14), and I don't want them to know. It was hard enough in my old town, and I don't want the same thing here. I convinced the teacher I was fine, but I don't know what to do about the discussion thing. I'm scared I'm going to start crying when we talk about it again tomorrow. Does anyone have any tips on how I can control it? The memories are just really bad sometimes and hearing about another rape in the book brings them up.
