So I was raped almost a year ago, and I have never talked to a professional. I know that I have several issues because of this..but this question is different than those...I am constantly thinking about my assailant/rapist and the incident itself. Not anything in particular, just little things. Like I always wonder if he is able to go on living his life like nothing ever happened, or if he thinks about it and it affects his day to day life as much as it does mine? The incident has completely broken my spirit, and pretty much taken away everything that makes me, me...and makes me happy. So my question is: Am I completely disturbed, or is there something wrong with me because I was curious about his life...and I decided to look him up on facebook. I found him!, and it seems like he has a normal life. I can't help but feeling cheated that he stole my life from me and is now leading a normal happy one of his own. It makes me so sad, and sometimes I get almost furious about it. Why does he get to live like nothing happened and I am now a broken, barely functioning individual. I feel so cheated. And hurt. I still can't even fully admit that the incident happened. How am I supposed to accept it and move on. It is part of me now, and I feel like everyone can see that, even though they have no idea that anything happened to me. I don't know what to feel or what to do. I hate him! Even worse I hate myself! I let this happen, and I let it get this bad, and now I feel like it's too late to do anything. I'm scared and I'm alone, and I can' t do it any more.

First time posting. My husband has been sober for 5 days. I'm wondering what I should expect as he goes through this. Also - I feel scared and disoriented as a result of this major change. I guess I'd just like to know if this is normal.
Last night, my parents told me to pack my things up because we will be migrating to New York by the end of the month. My older sister got an email yesterday from Culinary Institute of America informing her that she is accepted. So, she will be studying there and thus, we need to move out of the country and probably live in NY for good. My parents won’t let my sister live alone in America and...
