I was very recently raped and have begun to notice some psychological changes that are rather alarming but I am unsure as to whether or not they would be considered PTSD.
For the first few days after the rape, I walked around in a daze. I was in complete shock about the whole ordeal and was unable to make sense of my feelings. Since then, I've had some time to sit down and think, and have become very concerned about some of the feelings I've been experiencing since the incident. I dream about the rape sometimes at night, and I wake up and have a panic attack. Or sometimes just thinking about it throws me into a panic attack. I've developed a fear of having sex with men and have lost all desire to have sex...ever again. I feel very uncomfortable being touched and find myself wanting to be alone almost all of the time. I feel like I'm a completely different person because of this...almost like I'm detached from the world around me, or that I'm standing on the outside looking in.
I don't really know a lot about PTSD, so I'm not quite sure if this would qualify. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
