Over a year ago I was raped by a good friend of mine who has since moved to Australia. Tommorow I'm going to see a counsellor about it for the very first time. Problem is, I can't actually physically talk about it, I haven't been able to tell anybody any details of what happened to me and it was only a few months ago that i could form the word 'rape' with my mouth. I don't know how to go into a room and tell a complete stranger about this when I can't even say it to myself when I'm alone. Has anybody else had the same problem? And does anybody have any advice as to how i can get over this hurdle? It would be greatly appreciated, I'm really scared.
