    Trapped In My Mind.

    Today in counseling my counselor has mentioned the "chest of drawers" method of recovery. Where you open a drawer and put away a memory and only allow yourself to think about it at certain times. So many times I just want to scream at her. I cant just forget about it and no matter how hard I try, I cant get it off my mind. Its there when I wake up. Its there when I go to sleep, shower, driving,...

    Having a hard time dealing

    Recently, I've been struggling with the idea that what possibly happened to me when I was a child was incest. I don't quite know how to explain it, logically I know it was if it did, but I've never really thought about it until now and just the thought of the word makes me sick.Several years ago I had these flashes of images in my head, memories I guess they'd be called but flashes describes them...

    Advice for dealing with anger?

    Hi, I'm Skye. I'm not really sure how to go about this. I am not entirely comfortable with sharing the details of my experience at the moment, but I was abused by my Grandfather as a child (from about age 3/4 to age 14). I never told anyone, and my Grandfather remained a part of my life until two years ago. That was when my sister mentioned something odd to my mother, and she asked me directly....

    So I was told by a close friend "I don't act like I was raped. Were you really?" I didn't know how to respond. What the fuck was I supposed to do, show him my vagina and say "here's your fucking proof!" How do rape victims act. I cry. I get memory pains, hell I even almost crashed my mum's car today because I blacked out and ended up in the basement where my brother raped me. That.... Hurt... I...

    Since I was last here, Ove been diagnosed with type 2 Bipolar disorder. It makes a lot of sense and the medication has helped immensely. I've also forgiven my rapist. Being a male victim of rape has its own set of trauma/problems, but it was a quote from Oprah that pushed me over the top: "Forgiveness is when you give up the hope that you can go back and change the past."I really want to stick...

    I was 13 when my grandfather approached me about wanting to perform sexual acts on me, I was terrified.  Nothig like this had ever happened to me before, and to be honest, nobody ever believes that it is going to be them.  I repeatedly said no, but I eventually lost that fight.  For 4 years he would molest me, the details I will spare you readers, but the effects, they still linger today.  I...

    Forgiveness and closure

    My Friday therapist wanted to talk about my uncle and me forgiving him. She believes I need to forgive him so my end of life will come easily. She wanted to take me back to a memory and have me say I forgive him. It wasn't a memory but I told her how he told me when I was a baby and he fed me a bottle he would put his fingers inside me so I would be used to it and wouldn't cry so much when the...

    1 THE SERCH BEGINSSo long ago, distant memories, a life of disillusionment, sadness, disappointment and at times great joy.  We all have a story, so why is my story any more important than someone else's, I do not know.  Perhaps, because it is my story, or maybe I am looking for an absolution that can never come.  Or maybe it is just another attempt at putting my life in some sort of...
