    This is a genuine question. I posted a while ago about being sexually assaulted 8 weeks ago. AT first i felt able to take some power back. i felt like “fuck him” and found strength. AS the weeks rolls by i find that the people around me dont understand the ups and downs of trauma and it seems like they want me to just get over it. My partner cant understand why im not handling things as well as i was when it first happened. more and more i find myself sinking into victim mode. i dont like this feeling at all. any advice from the queen village?

    Hi Krys,
    First of all, jeez, assaulted! That’s scary. And not something to dismiss so easily. I think you were very brave, being so strong at first. But that doesn’t mean you’re not being brave right now. I think you need to see someone. Sexual assault is very serious and has severe consequences for the victims. So please tell your hubby to be more patient and supportive and find a specialist who can tell you how to become the survivor you want and need to be.
    I wish you all the luck! Love, Flo.

    Thank you for your response flo. I’m seeing a cousellor and my “wife” (not offended by the hubby assumption) is frustrated because our lives dont stop just because this horrible thing has happened. i guess i just have to keep getting back up. We have 2 kids so there really is no alternative xx

    Oh my, didn’t see the wife coming 😅 Glad you’re not offended! I can imagine it’s hard for her too, of course. Which makes it even more difficult for you, and so on. I hope your counsellor will help you both through this. Good luck 👑
