I found this website while searching for information about post-rape behaviour. I thought I had resolved all my feelings about being raped, but during recent therapy for PTSD it has emerged again.


Turns out I had buried it so deeply because I really believed it was my fault. I believed I was so bad that I had to hide that part of myself from everyone.


The therapy is hard, but I am at last re-evaluating all the thoughts and feelings about myself that I've believed for decades.

Hello twb, welcome to AS.  You are not alone! Many survivors of rape struggle with feelings of shame for many years. I know it is an issue that I am still working on, for sure.
