Re: Moving forward (sexual abuse)

Hey @scared01 sorry it's so hard. I can only imagine how difficult it must be. If grounding techniques aren't working, then try distraction strategies to get your attention away from the troubling thoughts. Could you try something safe and distracting? And again, call for support if it's getting too much for you to handle on your own.

Re: Moving forward (sexual abuse)

It's good that the flashbacks aren't as frequent as they were before, and it's totally understandable that you would feel like crap after such an emotionally exhausting and scary experience.

It must be pretty hard to concentrate on your studies after something like that - do you think it might help to leave it for now and get some rest?

[ Edited ]

Do you know what ive
just realised I was actually 14 not 16 as my mum and him were in a
relationship for 4 years and it started a year after they were
together so that would have made me 14 so it went on for 4 horrid
years.yes I get the power thing ......  I havent said that to anyone or even meantioned that either to anyone yet
it was
extremely confusing esp since – hmmm I dont want to say it but I
trust you enough to tell you as I havent meantioned this anywhere
else at all. But he made me.............................. do all
sorts of things that haunts me all the
time too Smiley Sad
