Re: What now?..

Hi LovePineapples, I'm glad to hear you feel like you're making progress in your healing; that's something you deserve, and something I know you've put a lot of energy into. Describing the assault as having a domino effect is something I've heard from other survivors as well. When we're dealing wit...

What now?..

I hope everyone is having a pleasant day :) I guess I'll share an update on my recovery process following being r*ped a few years ago. I've come to accept what's happened. I feel like I'm no longer 'traumatised' in an emotional sense, I've spent a lot of time trying to heal. I still experience a lot...

I know how important it feels to persevere and try to weather the storm until things get better. The thing is, we can't love someone bet...

Re: Loneliness bites.

Being a person can be tough and lonely sometimes, but especially now. I'm feeling some of that loneliness and wondering - what do you like to do for yourself when you're feeling lonely? Do you reach out to people, or take care of your body, or do something else? Would love to hear what you're doing...

Re: Sexuality With Religious Matters

So this might be a bit long but I honestly need some help. I’m 13 turning 14 in a month. I grew up Roman Catholic meaning I can’t be anything but a straight young lady. I’ve heard thinks such as you’ll go to hell if you like the same sex and many other sayings that are quite similar. Now one of my ...

Re: Can't orgasm ever since I was abused

It's good to hear that things are going better, but I'm a bit worried that he's still being distant and cold with you a lot of the time. You seem very aware of the things he's going through and the fact that he needs support, which is wonderful, but you need and deserve support and affection as wel...

Re: Can't orgasm ever since I was abused

You're very welcome! In that case, would you feel comfortable asking your counselor for resources for survivors who are working on re-connecting with their sexuality? And if you haven't seen it already, this article on the main site might offer some things to try: https://www.scarleteen.com/article...

Re: Can't orgasm ever since I was abused

You're welcome! It's awesome that you've been so proactive in asking healthcare providers for help around all this. It may just be a matter of time and letting things like the antidepressants and counseling help you with that anxiety (as a heads up, some antidepressants can have sexual side effects...

Re: Can't orgasm ever since I was abused

Hi LovePineapples, I think you're right that this reaction is linked with trauma or anxiety, and I'm so sorry that's something you're dealing with. I'm glad you've been getting support from a counselor and a psychologist, as you deserve all the support you can get in your healing process. Have you ...

Can't orgasm ever since I was abused

Hey there! This is my first post and I'll try to not waffle or anything. I've been reading through the forum and it seems a lot of other individuals experience hardship with orgasms. I've been trying really hard to reach an orgasm, for a few years now. I was r*ped when I was 12 and during the encoun...
