Hi

Hi everybody. I really hope to find some friends here who understand what I'm going through. I was sexually assaulted by my best friend 3 years ago, and it's just now starting to hit me really hard (is that normal?). I feel so betrayed and there's just this deep sadness I have that I can't explain. I also have a lot of other issues in my past that I'm sure a lot of you can relate to..abortion, drug use (even though I've been clean for 2 years now), anorexia...I've been through a lot. Overall, I'm in a good place in my life right now. I'm 19 years old, I have a 18 month old daughter, and I'm engaged to her daddy who is a wonderful guy. It's just lately everything in my past (especially the abuse) has been weighing down on me and I feel like I'm drowning, struggling to keep my head above water.

Welcome Les3 and I know how you must feel... I was betrayed by my best friend when he killed himself and although you've been through a lot, so has everyone on this site... I also used to do drugs, been clean for a year, and have hurt myself a lot also. And having a child can really be a heavy load. Your mind is currently under a lot of stress and it's decided to bring up all of these things from the past. Just remember that you have a wonderful child and an apparently wonderful fiancee (Spelling maybe?). If you ever need someone to talk to, I'm open ^.^

Welcome to AS

And PS: If you give me the definition of "normal" then every psychologist will cherish you as a God ^.^ Nothing is really normal, take it from an inspiring psych >.>

Thanks for the kind words. Maybe I should have added that while I've been through a lot, I know others have as well. I didn't mean to sound like I had it worse if that's how it came across.

And I like what you said about "normal", I guess that's very true.

Hey,

It is normal for it to hit you really hard sometimes yeah, and I understand what you mean by that drowning feeling, and congrads on your engagement. I think you will kind peope here who understand you, at first it may seem all abit different and abstract, but over time I think you will find that the people here are really good people and that you will start to make new friendship, I know I have, and I can't explain how supportive my friends have been, there just amazing.

I hope that we are able to help with your healing, please take care of yourself. :)
