  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.

    I'm so worn out from not being able to sleep. Everytime I try to go to bed i get such bad anxiety that i'm going to get hurt, that i can't sleep.When i do actaully sleep I wake up crying and sweaty becuase i think i can feel his hands all over me. I dream about it, i relive the whole thing in my sleep. And i never wake up unitll it's over. It's so bad i can't even take it anymore. I've been trying using different sleep aids to help me ive even turned to drugs and alcohol to get to sleep. I've tried warm baths and showers. I tried not thinking about it . I just can't do it. Any advice:help:
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Advice about going to sleep? YES! Just say the name of Jesus again and again and again and again. Jesus...Jesus....Jesus...Jesus...Jesus...Jesus...Jesus...Jesus...Jesus...Jesus.

    It may not sound like much, but I have used this again and again .... It works!

    What help have you had in working through what happened. Bottling up things doesn't work and is not the way to go. Your fears and whatever else need some resolution for you. You need help from an experienced person.

    This kind of violence angers me so much. :mad:

    At any rate, I think the best thing for you to do is to seek some help. Therapy could help you, that's only if you're not in therapy currently.

    Resolution will come as you identify and work through a bunch of issues that sexual abuse always brings. It's the unresolved issues and pain that are behind your sleeplessness.

    Bless you
