    I was raped by a friend of mine nearly 9 months ago now,

    i reported it to the police but unfortunately the case was dropped.

    i still have night terrors, the thought of even consensual sex stil makes me anxious, I just wish I could let go of these emotions.

    any advise or condolence?

    Hi ellie, as for advice, i would say going into a relationship make sure the other person knows youre in control. If they knew what happened, even vaguely then that may help them understand better why u wouldnt want to do anything. And a relationship doesnt have to have anything sexual at all and can still work. Just do everything on your terms. as for your emotions, sometimes it helps me to just have a cry about what happened to me and then i wipe my eyes and carry on. Sometimes you just need that alone time. Hope i helped :) Tidge

    Everything you are feeling is a completely normal reaction to a crappy situation. Having a rape case dropped is way to familiar as it happened to me recently. Please don't fight alone and please speak to people. You are NOT a burden and I promise getting things off your chest really helps! 

    Im sending all nice thoughts your way x
