  1. Thank you to everyone who responded to this post. It means so much to me. The friends I lost I felt I was very close to. But, when I opened up about being raped and my sexual trauma their response was indifference, dismissive, and honestly apathetic. It almost felt as if everyone just wanted me to keep my unpleasant feelings to myself and to keep up the image that everything was okay. I began to re-silence myself. I thought that if they could not understand then nobody else would surely care. I am very glad to have found this community. I feel seen and understood. And now that I have started to open up to more people about it in my life, I recognize that they just weren't my friends. My true friends have and always will hold space for me my unpleasant feelings. I thought they were and I could trust them but looking back I am now able to see that they never really were. So @Minccinno65! I completely understand what you mean when you said you recognized it beforehand. These posts provided me with comfort and I am in a better place than when I first joined AS.
  2. I recently lost a few close friends due to fall out of my sexual assault. I guess I changed too much and stopped being as much fun. I've been having a hard time with feeling as if I should have explained myself better or feeling like I could have done more. I recognize that these were not healthy friendships for me to be in. And since they have ended I have read other survivors accounts of similar situations happening to them. But I will still have to see my abuser when I return to college and having even fewer friends makes me fearful for the future. My therapist thought it would be a good idea for me to find an online support group. So I figured I would give it a try.
