New member and feeling nervous

Recommended Posts

Hi! My name is Lauren and I am a college volleyball player. I was raped by a boyfriend figure on the baseball team this last semester and I am seeking help and my therapist really recommended this site. I am fairly nervous. It seems like I'm going through a roller coaster of emotions. One day I am happy and then the next second I find myself lashing out at my mom or friends for no reason. I just want to feel normal again. The flashbacks are horrible and no one understands what I'm going through :( I'm hoping I can find support from you guys!

Hi Lauren, welcome to AS.

 

I'm sorry for what you have been through. Our pasts can and do certainly haunt us and try to continue harming us, even if we don't want them to haunt us or hurt us. It is not your fault what you went through, and I hope everything goes better for you from hereon. Hugs if okay? :hug:

Hi Lauren,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you have experienced. Nobody has the right to hurt you in this way. You will find many understanding and supportive members here. I am very glad your therapist suggested it and that you took the step to reach out. The struggles and the aftermath are as you describe...a rollercoaster. I hope your rollercoaster stops soon and lets you off. I wish you many steps forward on your journey of healing.

Mary
