    The one thing I cannot talk about IRL

    Hello :-) I will try to keep it moderately short. There is this thing that I never talk about with anyone. My therapist doesn't know (yet), and I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to tell my psychiatrist either (who is a man, and I literally cannot). Two or three friends know or suspect the...

    Past abuse is affecting my marriage

    My first relationship (we were 14 years old) was an abusive one from beginning to end. The abuse began with my boyfriend relentlessly pressuring me to be intimate with him and allowing his older brother to make crude, sexual comments towards me about my body as if I were an object and not a...

    Male Rape. May trigger!

    I’m a 36-year-old gay male living in the UK, long post, sorry. I‘d been struggling again with depression for a year or two (stress from the bunch of Muppets called my car insurance company, still dealing with them and being unable to cope with several past sexual attacks) and in the middle of...

    Eh... Does this count as "rape"?

    So I was "sexually abused" by my cousins when I was 10 (I'm 18 now). At the time they were already teens, that was the first time I had sex in my life. I still didn't knew how it worked and after I asked them in a weird talk (induced maliciously by themselves) they said they would show it to me...

    Neverending

    Does the pain of rape or sexual abuse ever go away? Lately I have been triggered so easily. I saw something in a show about a man beating up a woman and it immediately gave me flashbacks to when that happened to me.. now I've been reliving that anguish and I am trying to stop but I can't. I've...

    . I'd ask if I should end it, but people say no

    And that is totally practical. I know people encourage others and help them. I don't know if I wanted that, or maybe I do want that and just can't admit that to myself. I had a bad childhood and I wish things were different. I was suicidal over my childhood, yes. My dad was a monster, a true...

    Choosing what I love over what was right....

    I joined the Army as a bright eyed and innocent 17 year old in 2011. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and my desire to become. Basic and AIT went pretty smoothly, I found most of the challenges exciting and quickly learned that my gift of easily adapting to pretty much any situation was a...

    I was sexual assaulted.

    Hi all, I haven't been active on this forum for months but here goes.... Last year, I was brave enough to get help for my depression and self harming issues. I was put on medication and I have received therapy. But that didn't help me much. I didn't know how to tell my Doctor that all I wanted...

    Forever

    Sometimes I feel like I will feel the effects of the rape and sexual abuse forever. It has definitely changed me as a person and the way I see things. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be normal again and it all happened when I was so young that I don't think I was ever normal to begin with. I...

    Admitting it

    Yesterday I did one of the hardest things I ever had to do. I finally opened up to my parents about the sexual molestation I suffered at the hands of a coach and how badly it has affected me and how I wish that they had done more. They wish they had done more too (they found out a few years...

    Still clinging to me *trigger warning*

    I was molested by a coach when I was 10. Last summer he tried to get back in contact with me. I don't know where he is or what he is doing. He is old; I hoped for him to be dead now. I hate him more than words can describe. I want to hurt him and I want to fight back. He has taken so much...

    I'm still not over it.... *Very Triggering*

    I went in total isolation once I found out that my ex boyfriend was a Sociopath. I feel like I want to throw up, I feel sick to my stomach. I've been crying for weeks and everyone is trying to be there for me, however I know it's going to take awhile before I can heal. Especially since I've been...
