Traumatic Experiences – How to overcome_Question
Posted on Monday, May 25th, 2015 at 5:24 am.
Dr. Beth, I am a 28 year old married woman and I live a pretty normal, stable life. While listening to news on television usually never bothers me, I find that now I am feeling very upset and anxious when I hear stories about sexual assault by athletes and other date-rape stories on the news. I was date-raped by a boy I had gone out with a few times in high school when I was 16. I never told anybody and it seemed like I had put it in the past. I don’t like feeling so sensitive to these stories. For some reason, they just recently started bringing back memories of my own past experience. What do I do?
