This event completely changed my life; I closed off from the world.

In 2005 I was sexually assaulted. This event completely changed my life; I closed off from the world. I didn’t know whom to turn to, I felt ashamed and worst of all I blamed myself. I continued to get flash backs of the event that were very vivid and would keep me up throughout the night. I lost my appetite, my friends and my confidence I became very isolated and anxious. It was not until a few years on that I decided to speak to someone for the first time about what had happened. I learned to accept what had happened and that it was not my fault. I also began to trust men again and start healthy relationships. I would not be where I am today if it was not for having sought treatment.
