    Ive been told to get specialised therapy for teh abuse ive gone through. becuase of recent events, and the last person i was seeing bringing all teh feeling back, worse than what they were when the attack/abuse happened.

    I've gone nearly 9 and 7 years withough talking about any of it in detail. I acknowledge it happened. but ive never gone into detail of during it. at this point, the rape. I really dont rememebr much of it. i rememebr 2 things right now. no; 4 things. and i think tahst from me just not dealing with it.

    So i just dont knwo about the therapy and dealing with it
    but rigth now, im not able to shower cause when i go in, i rub the skin raw off myself. and usually break down too. and living in places where someone doesnt know about teh past, they get questionable as to whats goign on. so id rather just avoid it.

    has anyone been through therapy for abuse and attack? what happened how hard is it

    Right now I'm in an intensive therapy program talking about it. My rape just happened on New Years. I was already in the program prior to the rape. But it's been helping a lot. I'm still a wreck but talking about it helps and medications for PTSD helps a lot. They are still trying to get my meds right and it will take some time. After I finish up at the program here I will be seeing a specialist for continued therapy. I do almost the same thing in the shower as well.

    Go with the therapy. It's the only way to start to feel better. I'm told the pain will never go away. However, with time you learn to live with it. I'm no where near at that point yet, but I'm on the path to get to that point eventually.

    I've never dealt with it before tho.
    Its just locked in a box deep away.
    and its not recent its old
    just an ex has made me feel violated.

    what can i expect. how fragile am i possibly going to be?

    The therapy make sure it is done by a professional who specializes in trauma okay It is necessary as my psychologist i have been seeing 2 years now has unlocked alot but he does it gradually and knows how to close the session without me stay there you know in the past It is crucial to have someone that knows about abuse and trauma and the therpy. It will be hard but with help you can get through it it takes time okay so be prepared hugs

    i'm in therapy for a rape that happened in my childhood. she's a therapist that specializes in trauma. she's great.

    we go nice and slow, with my safety as number one priority. there's no rush to get stuff out there. some weeks it's hard, others not so bad. we have learned how to communicate. sometimes i don't have words, but she's pretty good at reading my body language. we do alot of grounding exercises. we also do alot of dream analysis. we only go as fast as i want. i am in total control all the time.

    remember that you can do this at your own pace. a good therapist won't push you. your safety is what is important. in fact, you could start your sessions with your new therapist by asking her what she can do to keep you safe as you progress in your therapy. that way you will be reassured. she won't think that's a strange question at all.
