Rape / Sexual Abuse board


I was sexual abused as well 3-8... Growing up I thought this was all my fault and I was worthless... I'm 32 now and I have no confidence what so ever. I get soooo angry that I let these people ruin my life.. I can't hold a relationship, I second guess everything.. I'm in therapy now and on medication Prozac 10mgs and Xanax 1mg. I'm hoping with talking about it and getting the help like I am I can enjoy what life I have left. This is probably one of the toughest things I've ever had to do. I try and tell myself I'm worth something but never being able to feel confidence for so long it's hard to do.. I suffer panic attacks when I'm in a social setting, I never felt like I belonged... Sometimes I feel like I will never break this cycle but If I think like that then I know I won't... I'm trying to be positive and reassure myself then i am worth a lot.. People are constantly telling me I'm a good person but I just don't see it... I'm in a relationship now and I want more then anything for it to work. He knows my situation, he knows how my mind works and for the most part he has been patient with me but I still have that feeling that I will sabotage it and he will leave.. All I ever wanted was someone to hold me and tell me it was going to be okay without thinking what does this person want from me... Does this person care about me or is he just telling me things I want to hear.. It's a never ending battle but one that I'm willing to fight....I can't live the rest of my life feeling this way.. Right now I'm pretty level headed but tomorrow could be a different story! I'm trying really hard and now that I've seen this message board and I'm reading about other peoples situations I know I'm not alone and I can pretty much talk about anything without being judged it's giving me some hope that I can beat this....
