i contacted my liason officer who was suppose to send me information for help. i never recived it. i asked at the hospital for information, they gave me information for an area nearly an hour away from whwere i live. i asked my doctors surgery for help. they gave me an out of date leaflet and when i called the helpline the line was dead. i asked my college for support in my subjects. they said it was on me to catch up. how can i feel safe or secure or move on if im being made to feel like its my fault. like no one cares enough to give me 5 minutes to help find me the support i need. i have had to find my own ways of recieving this help and had to pay for numerous councelling sessions that did not help. i get angry at the slightest thing, i cry at nothing. im scared to go out in town. my confidene not only in myself but in my driving has completely gone. ive been self harming again. i dont want to let him win but i just dont know how else to move on. ive only got just two days ago got the help i asked for about 3 months ago and thats because my grades are beggining to suffer. they have just started to listen but i dont feel i can trust them for their help because im scared they will only push me aside like the police and the hospital and my doctors did. can i trust another councellor with all the pain i have. my parents know what happened and are here but i feel ashamed and to blame for what happened. i know my family are here for me but i just cant talk to them. its so hard
