Thank you very much...!!!

One question, when it says helpline, does that mean it's confidential and you can talk? Or is it not that!!??

Thanks

I would have thought so, not completely sure though, I know I've phoned a helpline once before when I wanted some info, but I'd be surprised if they don't offer talking seervices

Yes Rape Crisis are confidential and you can talk to somebody that will be extremely helpful. They will give you advice and send you out a Rape Crisis pack that helps you with hints and tips of how to get through your trauma and coping with nightmares / panic attacks.

After I reported the attack on me, they were brought in and contacted me regularly for several months to make sure I was okay and have told me if ever I find a difficult patch to ring them back.

It couldn't do any harm to give them a quick ring; they are not always available as they are a charitable organization and they are struggling for funds, but they are always willing to try and help out. Check on times and also if they are busy, you may get an answerphone. If you don't feel like giving any details, just explain that and could they possibly talk to you for a short while.

There is a very useful site called Headroom. This is the link to it:

http://www.bbc.co.uk...whatisheadroom/

There is some very useful help and information on this site which is part of the BBC and Open University, and it is all to do with all kinds of ways to deal with our emotions. Take care, I haven't read or seen anything too triggering myself, but view it with caution just in case.

There are some useful print-out sheets and video interviews on there, etc.

I've found Ruby Wax's interviews that you can watch very helpful. Also there are a list of things like depression, agerophobia, etc.
