I’m 18 year old female, abused as a child, terrified of men, how do I make it all stop?
hi im a 18 year old female and am not on any medication, well I was abused as a child and Now the past is catching up to me. only now did I realize that what had happened was sexual assault but the man has passed away now so no one will believe me. but all that had happened over the 10 years of abuse is on replay in my head I can’t get it to stop, I can’t eat or sleep properly and I’m lost in school because of this. and now every time a male comes near me I’m terrified and tense up or freeze. how do I make it all stop?
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
This issue is not easily solved by yourself or on the internet ..you need a psychologist to consult ..you need a lot of counseling and support..
Initially practice yoga and meditation and find a good psychology clinic around ..
i can understand your feelings and the fear that you have in your mind. but you should understand that all the men are not the same. you can avoid going out alone. always be occupied with your friends or family. that will give you a sense of security.
YOU SHOULD CONSULT A COUNSELLOR OR A PSYCHIATRIST. ITS QUITE NATURAL THAT YOU SUFFER FROM ANXIETY BECAUSE OF THE PAST EPISODE,BUT YOU NEED TO MOVE ON AND FORGET THE PAST. START ANTI ANXIETY TABLETS
This is a developmental anxiety disorder. U need to consult a adolescent clinic specialist. You need to concentrate on changing your attitude and personality. You will be fine. Don’t worry. Consult a psychologist
