Hi everyone! I'm a teenage girl and I was sexually assaulted by my (now) ex-boyfriend. I was in denial about it and had very limited memories of the actual event until about three months ago. I kept thinking of reasons why it "didn't count" as sexual assault, and I've only put my denial aside within the last month or so. So for me, it's as if it just happened. My emotions are everywhere and I really don't know how to feel. I'm in therapy and I have supportive friends, but I still feel so alone. I hope that this will be a place where I can talk to other survivors and find more support. Xoxo

Hello becominguncaged,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry about the trauma that was inflicted by your ex. Denial is very common. I denied for more years than I care to admit, but you are facing this now, which is very brave. You will find many understanding and supportive people on this site. It is good to have as much support as you can, and please know that you are not alone.

I wish you well on your healing journey.

Mary

Hey MeBeMary,

Reading your reply made me feel so relieved I felt like crying. Knowing that you, or anyone, would see my post and believe me and validate my trauma makes me feel, well, validated. And less alone. So thank you. :loveas:
