Default Retraumatized?

He asked me about sexual abuse, who was the abuser and how severe it was.

I anbswered him, and he said "OK, do you have any other family member?" I didn't want to talk about this but the kept insisting, I wanted to talk about my future.

Telling him was extremely distressing, his response increased the stress. He didn't give me anything to relief the stress, it was like an induced flashback on propouse .

Now I have intrusive memories and feel like ****, I have missed two days at college because of this.

Big hugs,

I know how to feel! It will go away in time as you well know. Be really really gentle with yourself. You deserve to have trusting relationships.

I'm sorry this happened OliverB.

Are you talking about your therapist here?I'm assuming you are.If so,I think it's very wrong for a T to ask questions like that in the first place.Worse to insist that you talk about anything you're not ready to.

I hope you let him know that it's not ok to do this.

That was very unprofessional of him, not to mention damaging.

I'm sorry you went through that.

How are you now?

Trauma therapy is amazingly distressing. Therapists will often push you outside your comfort zone to get to the parts that need healing.
