What can I do?

The first thing is to remember that it is not your fault. Being assaulted or abused does not make you a bad person.

You need to spend time and talk to people you trust about what happened. Take it easy and do things slowly. If you are having nightmares, tell people you trust about the nightmares. Nightmares are a normal reaction, they will disappear with healing. It’s very important that you talking about the abuse and don’t keep it a secret. Choose to tell people who you know are concerned and know how to listen and support you.
