  9. Hello

    Hi drgncro, welcome to AS. I think many of us having been following the Ford case. My husband and I were talking about the same thing you brought up. It's maddening when people don't understand what we need to do survive a tramua. It's hard for people to talk about it in 2018 , things were so much worse in 82. You have found a safe place here.

  17. Hello

    Hi TeaLove, I understand how you feel , I was a mom of young daughters and I worried what happened to me would happen to them. I taught them to respect their bodies. One of the things I did teach them was they didn't have to hug people even me or my husband. They had the right to say no. It also taught them when they started dating that they have the right to say no. Both my girls are grown women now,, one is a hugger one isn't but it all comes down to their choice. Patricia

  25. 1 year anniversary

    Hi NottustMoco , welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what happened to you. It's not right what he did and the court system was not there for you. All of us here understand triggers and they are so hard. It's important for you to know you did nothing wrong.i agree with @Hoping8 try to find a smell that you like, for me it's pepermint. When I can't sleep I will but a little on my pillow. I find music to be very powerful to me, at times i will play a song over and over, do you have a favourite singer. These are little things you can do. I am sorry to say you can't change what happened to you but know you are not alone in this journey of healing. Many here understand what you are going through and we are here for you. Patricia
