Hi Can Anyone Help


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here. I am 31 and have just started seeling a counciler for the first time, I am not looking forward to it very frightend and not sleeping well but when I do I have vivid dreams that are so frightening I am frightend to sleep. I don't trust people and I really dislike men, I know not all men are bad, but why take the risk? I have never told anyone my story. People know I have been raped as a child but no one knows the true extent of how bad it was and just what happend to me. I don't know if I can tell anyone. I am worried people will not treat me the same. I thought I would join here and see what other people think and if anyone feels the same as me? I cant move on with my life, but I really dont see how I will ever be able to trust people. I hate even being around people and I take a dislike to someone very easy. I dont give people a chance. I know I am not a nice person and I dont want people to like me. If people get close to me I run a mile. I have one person in my life and she means alot to me and I trust her. She seems to like me but I have NO idea why she would, I dont treat her well.

I dont even know if any of this makes sense.
