Hey guys [Smile]

Was just reading the post "DEPRESSED" by HELPLESSME. Perhaps you could pass on a couple of local resources to her. I can't personally endorse these organizations, but Rozan.org in particular looks very good. They work in womens mental health (especially violence-related) and have a toll-free youth helpline "working on the emotional and sexual health of young people"-
http://rozan.org/content/section/7/45/

They also provide specific counselling and informational resources for survivors of childhood sexual abuse-

Sahil works exclusively in the area of child sexual abuse and also provides free on-site counselling-

Cheers.

You're welcome and I really hope you get a chance to call one of these lines at some point. You can also contact them through email or letters if you prefer. The people answering them are counsellors and psychologists who are very used to helping women who were abused as children. Hopefully it might give you some comfort to discuss your concerns with them before you need to get married. Once you feel able to talk about some of this and get support, you'll likely also be better able to concentrate on studying.

I'm so sorry that this happened to you and that you've had to keep it to yourself for so long. You've been really strong and you deserve support to get through this! Take care of yourself.
