  1. Your concern is a wonderful thing and comes from a caring heart. Ultimately it is her decision whether to tell or not tell, and to whom she chooses to disclose this crime. Be supportive but not pushy. It's a difficult place to be in as her friend, Dave. I know you the best for her. However, if pushed too hard, she may retreat. Let her know you are 100% supportive and will stand by her no matter which decision she makes. Some counseling would be best. If she could contact a rape crisis hotline, that might be the first step in this process. Let her know she is not alone and can come to this sit

    Hi Kaia, You have a very pretty name! Please know you are among new friends here on AS. Whatever you've gone through, please do not feel you have to go it alone. Not only are there many of us here to bring support your way, I am hoping you have someone to confide in at school or other safe place. Take good care of YOU, hon. ~Anni
  3. Sun, You have had a very tough time being validated for what you went through as a very young child. It's inconceivable that a toddler could be violated so brutally, but then again, some depraved soul chose lust & evil desires rather than a healthy sense of protecting a child. Undeniably, you are in need of a therapist who doesn't engage in counter transference. That is UNETHICAL and highly unprofessional. You should report anyone who acts untoward with you. I hope you find a very supportive environment here on AS. This is a place you can find solace, comfort, guidance and lots of loving
  4. I like River's suggestion about a folder for expletives. As a NON-swearer, I'd appreciate it. Is there a NO Smoking Sign around, too.. jk.
  5. I so relate to your post. Giving support to others comes naturally, yet asking for help makes me too vulnerable. I fear no one would care.
