Hello everyone.

 

While I'm familiar with message boards/chat rooms this is a new area for me.

 

I was raped just over ten years ago but never got to deal with it. Got to experience my first-ever triggering watching a favorite show where a favorited character is raped. The first human being I ever told responded in ways that have only been the epitome of supportive. Trying to get into counseling now, and my priest has also been helping me out.

 

Not comfortable stating more than this for now as I'm pretty sure I need to save those things for a different forum.
