    Hello,
    I'm looking for some support. I was raped in January and besides my doctor there are very few people who know. To make a long story short, I am suffering from PTSD very bad and I'm on medication. I'm feeling very depressed and have had thougs of ending my life. I'm afraid of my family finding out and so I'm scared to reach out for help. Will someone please talk with me?

    Glad you found us. PTSD is tough. Ask your doctor to refer you on to therapist with experience in PTSD. Remember that the terrifying symptoms are the normal response to an abnormal event.

    Hi Inferior Lady,
    Sexual abuse, any sexual violence is horrific, to do this to someone you are indeed sick and need treatment. Many factors cause sexual abuse, violence in the home/sexual violence to the abuser as a child. It becomes a vicious cycle of abuse, alcoholism can be a cause and also mental health problems. Many abusers are obsessed with sexual matters and can't stop themselves. Some abusers witness parents abusing other siblings, and think it is what happens in other homes. Violence doesn't help, I want all children protected and much better awareness of sexual abuse, any abuse.
    Some parents use sexual violence as a form of discipline/control. Society needs to stop this happening, people need to report abuse and help those that can't ie neighbours, others involved with children etc.
    I would never want someone raped as a punishment, it is wrong I feel.
    I am not trying to upset anyone, I am a victim, so I do understand. Thanks for caring about this subject however.
    Thanks
    Kate

    Marie, sorry to hear what happened to you, but please don't end your life because of it. its better your family finding out than you ending your life. if you do, they will go through hell on earth.
