Hi everyone. 20 years ago I was raped. I never discussed it with anyone and overtime figured I had managed to move past it. Mostly I guess I had. I married and now have 3 teenagers. but now that my daughter is 16 (the age I was when I was attacked) and I'm coming up on the anniversary (December) I feel a bit out of control. I've never cried over it and instead became a pro at burying it so that I could function. My fear is in the process of dealing with this, unleashing emotions that I cannot handle. I want full and complete healing, but don't want to become a mess in the meantime. Can anyone relate?
