  1. I am so sorry that this happened to you. I have not had the same exact experience, but I can relate to your experiences of self blame and the constant need for validation from others. While there is no simple fix, I have been able to understand one thing. The reality that a lot of survivors (including myself) create isn't really real. Things really are NOT your fault. People really are NOT out to attack you. You ARE worthy. You ARE beautiful and like-able. Self blame comes in a lot of forms. In short, for the past three days I have been practicing picturing myself outside of myself...every time I want to blame myself. I look at the situation objectively as if I am a third party and say "am I at fault here?" "Have I done something wrong?" Usually the answer is no. You are a good person, and a brave person for coming out about your attack. You will get through this. Don't give up. <3
  2. I felt ok for the most part. Since deciding that I was going to face this head on...I have actually found this strange peace. Tomorrow could be different. Some days are bad and some days are good. I do want to tell you though that I may not know you...but I will send a prayer up for you so that you do not have to pray alone. I hope that these words of peace somehow reach you and you have a better and blessed day tomorrow.
  3. Thank you everyone. I am still coming to terms with what actually happened to me. Now that I am married with children of my own, I am ready to face this so that it can no longer destroy my life. I want to get back to a happy place...who ever she is. I don't even remember but I know she is there. Thank you again.
  4. I am new to the group. I am hoping to share with you all in time, and get some helpful advice. Thank you.
