I feel worried about going back to work and being around men since the rape. I live alone and I miss my friends. I just don't see this getting any better.
I understand, but it has only been a couple of weeks. You will see as the year goes on through therapy that you will be back to your regular self in no time! Have you been making your scheduled appointments?
Yes, but once I leave I still feel the fear and anxiety like something bad will happen. I usually drink to prevent me from thinking about it, but really I don't want my friends and coworkers to judge me.
We do have some trauma recovery groups so that you can make new friends. Its been helpful for those we recommend and it is way better for you than drinking for sure!
I suppose it is worth a try. Could you give me the contact information?
