Dear Doc.

I hope you had a great weekend its a pitty i can not say the same about me. 6 October 2000 i was raped with two of my friends, but i don't want to go into detail about that now , but i never went to councelling after the inccident thinking that i was strong enought to handle it. only my family knows about it, last year i decided to share this with my boyfriend, everything was fine up until last night. he came home drunk. and he started accusing me of sleeping around with other guys, and he started saying very hurtfull things to me and i ignored him at first and he went on and on as if he was provoking me, then i started dising men, until we got to a point where, we got to the point about this lasbiana friend of mine, he asked me if this was the friend i was raped with,

for a second i could see the men's face who raped me , i started to have flash backs of tha rape inccident. i am tourned apart i have never came acrosse to such a heartless me. i started to have an enxiety attack. Doctor do you think its time for me to go and see someone about my problem or i was just angry that he brought it up when we were fighting. i can not stop crying, at work everywhere.

So sad to head about this, sandi --- counselling is always a good idea after any awful experience like rape. But it' especially sad that your boyfriend abused the privilege you had given him of knowing about what had happened, and made stupid and cruel acusations about you. I think it is indeed high time that you go to see someone about all this, and work through it, so that you can become free to move on with your life, without problems related to the egly events.
