  1. Invalidation. Words Can Hurt!

    This is one that I just encountered the other day from my new therapist. Now I've been really struggling due to the fact that my r@pist recently contacted me after 12 years. Mine was a date r@pe and he must have seen my face on Facebook...that's all I can think of. Anyway, it was triggering anxiety in me...the thought that he can find me...just google me and find where I work..etc. etc. So I've just been hypervigilant and a little scared that I'm being stalked by him. So my therapist just says, "Your thought process is irrational. Why would he come to your work? It's not like it was a violent drag-you-down-a-dark-alley-in-the-middle-of-the-night r@pe." I thought to myself...way to minimize what happened, you idiot. He still overpowered me...he still took a piece of me. Just because I wasn't (too violently) abused should make no difference. How about validating my fears and helping me work through????? I'm ticked off to say the least.
