Found this on one of my numerous internet searches (I know I'm obsessed!)
I am experiencing every one of these:
- Increased fear and anxiety.
- Self-blame and guilt.
- Helplessness, no longer feeling in control of her life.
- Humiliation and shame.
- Lowering of her self esteem
- Feeling dirty or contaminated by the rape
- Feeling alone and that no one understands.
- Losing hope in the future.
- Emotional numbness.
- Loss of memory.
- Constantly thinking about the rape.
- Having flashbacks to the rape, feeling like it is happening again.
- Becoming suicidal.
