Oh how the memories haunt me

Hey,

Sorry for not posting in a while I have had a lot of school work and work happening all at the same time.

I have not talked to a therapist yet about this because I am still kinda scared to admit to someone I know could possibly tell my parents or get the police involved in the situation. I have been having a lot of bad days. During the 3 months of summer, I had three bad days. During the school year where I am back where my sexual harassment happened it seems like every day there is something that triggers me and I am back to how I was last year and how I was when it first started. I have flashbacks of how could I have stopped this from happening to me or just the event repeating over and over in my head. I have also been having trouble with my boyfriend's family because of this. I got use to my boyfriend touching me but his mom came up on a day that I was having a bad day and she started rubbing my back and touching me. I was not comfortable with this. I did not want to seem mean and tell her to stop and I do not know if I should tell his mom and dad about what happened just so they are aware of what is happening if I say don't touch me. 

 

What do you guys think? Should I tell his parents or try to learn and deal with it? What is a good way to bring it up to his parents if I do tell them? How do you deal with flashbacks and being in the place that it happened? 

 

I hope everyone is having a better week than me.

I completely understand why you are hesitant to speak about what happened. I recognize much of what you are saying as things I thought and said myself. You mention your therapist, please use that resource! I know how scary it is to say these things out loud and how hard it is to trust someone with this information. It is scary to feel like you may not have control of the story anymore, but your therapist is there for you, on your side, and will be able to teach you what you need to know to not only survive, but thrive. Your therapist can help you discover your triggers, help you realize this isn't your fault, and teach you coping skills.
