I agree that anxiety can be within our control, just remember that if it happens, you shouldn't feel guilty about it. Just keep taking good care of yourself. I did over eat during my worst period, and barely made it out of bed. I did attend school, but when I came home I went straight to bed to binge series. I fled I guess. In the series I watched, nobody got assaulted, everyone was well groomed and joyful. I just wanted

  21. Hello @Jeanie234 and welcome to After Silence, I am Wanna. 🌻 I am deeply sorry for your trauma. You are most welcomed to join in here to have After Silence supporting you through this. I have no experience with the pills, but I understand that taking them is a triggering experience on top of everything else you have to put up with right now. It is good that you start to reach out early, you are brave for doing that. Self blame is normal among survivors, as the situations often are complex leaving it easier to put the guilt on yourself. Having someone close letting you down like that
