    You wont be able to forget it but you can get help so that you can learn to cope with it. What was done was terrible thing. Has the doc offered you counselling. Has ther person that did things to you had justice brought to them?

    It will get harder before you can heal. Chances are you've locked all of the fear, pain, emotions and memories away, which for a while would help. But now you've let them out, in order to start healing, and that is hard. I know, because I've just started letting out my demons too. But don't give up. It will get better as you begin to come to terms with what has happened.

    If I can do it, so can you. We'll do it together.
    PM me if you need to talk, and take care of yourself,

    Don't worry if you don't think you can let it all out on Tuesday. If it helps, you could try to write down your feelings, so that you don't actually have to say as much at your appointment. A good psychiatrist will not force you to say things if you don't feel happy disclosing them all at once, so you can build up trust with them before having to tell them everything.

    Good luck, I'll be thinking of you,
