  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

    It was really awful. It hurt. I cried through the whole thing. I had flashbacks, and then I found out I have something wrong with me down there because of what he did. So I'm really not doing so well right now.

    Hon, I am so, so proud of you for sticking with your guns and getting through your appointment. I know it was really, really hard and overwhelming for you, but you made it through. I'm sorry you have something wrong down there, that sucks, but keep your head up...at least you know now some more about yourself, and how you can start healing physically as well as emotionally from this. I know you're not doing very well, but you should be very very proud of yourself for getting through the appointment.

    I am surprised I even made it out of that appointment in one piece.

    I'm not surprised at all, but I also know that it was very hard for you to go and do it. You are very strong and you have proven that over and over again. Just keep holding on. You will get through this.

    It was hard and painful, and I don't ever want to go through that again.

    You aren't alone in feeling like that. Doctors can be terribly frightening people for any abused woman.

    Well done for seeing it through

    It was hard for me. I don't like the Doctors as it is, but after being raped, its much much worse. Especially to be touched. I did make it through though, and I think that was a great accomplishment for me.

    It was. Finding a Dr you like could be very helpful.

    It's not that I didn't like the doctor, she was very nice and gentle, but it was so painful because of the way I was raped.

    I wouldn't have gone if my mother didn't literally make me. I was so nervous and scared. It's so much to have to deal with this right now.

    I would lovve to talk. I have to see my T today, and I feel kind of anxious about it.

    :hug: It is always a hard thing to do but you really are doing so well Hun. If I can ask, how did your appointment go? Did your T help at all?

    My T appointment didn't go so well last time. She helped some, but it was a bad session for me this past week.

    Have you thought about getting another therapist? It doesn't seem like she's really able to give you what you need.

    Its not necessarily that it was bad, it was just very hard for me. There is just some really hard sessions.
    Thank you for thinking of me. I'm hanging in there bit by bit.
