Well, I've only been here a few weeks and still discovering parts of the site! Good starting points are probably Gathering Place or The Aftermath - you'll find people posting messages directly about the issues they're dealing with after rape or abuse. You can start your own topic, or you can read other people's and reply if you like. There's a forum called Share your Story which is probably the best place if you want to tell your story of exactly what happened to you, but you don't have to if you don't want to. That forum is protected so you can only go there if you have over 10 posts, or you can request a password from a moderator. You can either send one a private message, or add a request to this thread. You might just be happier browsing the other forums until you have 10+ posts. The other forums are pretty self-explanatory, you might want to go there if you have particular issues. There's no pressure, you can get stuck in and start new topics, or just sit back and read through other people's threads. I've found it very helpful to read other people's stories, to realise that I'm not alone in the feelings I have. Feel free to send me a private message if you get stuck! To do that, you just hover over the name on the left, click to get the menu, and click "send message".
