Horrific nightmares

I keep having reoccurring nightmares about my sexual assault. I’ll wake up sobbing hysterically. I just want them to stop, they’ve honestly destroyed my sleep schedule

Female 15151515

About the forced oral sex you were talking about? It must be trauma

Yeah, my counselor confirmed it was a sexual assault.
Is there any way to deal with trauma?? I can’t live like this any more, it’s all I can think about

Have you thought of reporting it to the police?
Counselor helps?

Have you talked to anyone about it? Had someone help you process what happened?

What meds are u on ?

Celexa and abilify

I’ve talked to a counselor once, but after the first visit my parents realized they couldn’t afford it

Oh that’s a pity.

Yeah :confused:

That sucks :frowning:
My guess is your brain is trying to process the information and make sense of what happened by making you relive it in your dreams.

If someone could help you process it, maybe the dreams would go away.

I’m no shrink, but feel free to pm me anytime if you want to talk :slight_smile:

Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m sorry this happened to you. Maybe try a forum for sexual abuse ( they have hotlines too) they may have better info on how to help you process your feelings.

I take prazosin for nightmares. I can’t tell you enough how much it has helped me. I am an abuse/sexual assault survivor.
