I’ve been raped twice and attempted rape which I was coerced into I stopped but it was still very much sexual assault. This is over the past few months I’m jumpy can’t focus very anxious all the time sleep is when I can I try to sleep and have nightmares sometimes. I’m irritable and I’ve had two infections. I did physical cleansing this afternoon I was better whilst doing it. I’m having trouble even thinking it sounds daft. I’m doubting myself and avoiding meaningful conversations. Am trying to eat to improve my health. Until a few weeks ago I was drinking when I was going out and overeating anything. I feel like crying sometimes.
