Thanks for adding greenwizard and Shyshark. Your support helps a lot. I think the creepy feeling ebbed very slowly today, and I rested all of today. Maybe a 30 min. nap too. I tried belly breathing, having read that helps. I'm sure now that it's anxi

Not a lot of physical force went into my first assault either. I was drugged. If what the bitch was caught with was any indication, I was given a heavy dose of GHB with some ecstasy thrown in. It made me compliant. Everyone at the bar just saw me

Yes, definitely. For starters, I'm a research scientist, so I read journals for my work, but that's in a different field. Regarding topics more related to abuse, I've used research to help me recognize symptoms of trauma and c-ptsd so I could identi
