Exclamation I don't know if i was raped, probably just paranoid: please please help

Okay, so I have OCD and I have this huge fear of being pregnant. I have this thought that maybe someone snuck into my house in the middle of the night and raped me when I was sleeping. I woke up with a sick stomach this morning, but I think that's because I went to bed really upset and worried.

Sounds to me like anxiety. I struggle with anxiety too.

If you don't already have one, I'd recommend first and foremost setting up an appointment with a therapist, they can work wonders if you find the right one. If you don't click don't feel bad about trying a different one.

In the meantime, you take a pregnancy test. Yes, it'll probably be negative, but would it make you feel better? If your stressed and worried it might delay your period which will only freak you out more.

But if you have a therapist or after you get one they'll be able to give you better advice. But the chances of someone sneaking into your house and raping you without your knowledge are nearly zero. Try to remember that, but don't argue with your fear. My therapist tells me to breathe past it. But to not tell myself that it's a "bad" feeling.

Best of luck. I hope you feel better.
