Hello world!   Leave a comment

Hi this is a blog about surviving rape and living with rape related post traumatic stress disorder.

It is part of my own journey to recovery, a journey that has already taken 23 years, and may well take the rest of my lifetime.

I don’t hold my memory of rape dear, I would love to forget about it and move on, but that just does not happen, you don;t choose to have intrusive thoughts and flashbacks, those things happen in spite of your determination to put it all behind you.

 

A smell, a word, a picture, and image in a film, myraid triggers that cause flashbacks cannot be filtered out of the memory.
