Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Nine things survivors wish you knew.
Nine things survivors wish you knew about sexual assault. 1. Sexual assault can happen within relationships. It can be perpetrated by those you know and trust. 2. Anyone at any age can experience sexual assault. Men and children experience sexual assault, too. 3. Sexual assault comes in many forms. Rape isn't the only kind of sexual assault. Unwanted sexual acts and touching, for example, are also sexual assault. 4. Sexual assault is never the victim's fault. It doesn't matter where they were, what they were wearing, how much they drank, or how long they stayed. No matter what, it's still not their fault; only the perpetrator is to blame. 5. Freezing is a common reaction to sexual assault. Freezing is a survival response. Like the fight and flight responses, the freeze response is an automatic and involuntary response to danger. Please stop asking survivors why they didn't fight back. 6. Sexual assault isn't something you can just "get over." Survivors can't simply go "back to normal." Validate their trauma and their feelings. 7. Talking about sexual assault isn't easy. If a survivor shares their story with you, give them 100% of your attention, thank them, and believe them. 8. Every survivor's experience is unique. Trauma is deeply personal. Don't assume you know what every survivor is going through, even if you've experienced sexual assault yourself. 9. Sexual assault changes the way survivors view the world. Sexual assault can affect every aspect of a survivor's life, and healing can be a painful journey. Offer support if you can. April is #SexualAssaultAwarenessMonth. Survivors: if there's anything else you wish people knew, feel free to comment below. I may do a part 2. Sending love to all the survivors out there-please take good care as SA awareness content continues to circulate this month. I hope this helps others better understand sexual assault so they know how to support us better.

Handling PTSD
When I found out about my OCD, I also found out that I have PTSD. 3 years ago I had been involved in a very horrible car accident. And until this day, I still get nightmares. I went to therapy, but it didn't help. When I started with therapy, things only got worse. I couldn't sleep, I couldn't focus, it was as if I was stuck in an endless trance. I pushed everyone and everything out. Nowadays I still have that have nightmares about that day. If anyone could please suggest what I could do to deal with PTSD, cause it feels like it's not going away any time soon. So please,I need help🙏🙏
