It’s been just under two months since I put in that crime report. The officer who dealt with me suggested I access some support networks (I guess he could hear just how depressed I was in my voice alone).
The charity Rape Crisis contacted me a few short days afterwards saying that their waiting list is 8 – 10 weeks. Well yesterday I heard from them, and my initial appointment is today at 3:45.
I don’t quite know how to feel, really. Very nervous, apprehensive, angry that I even need to access a support network such as theirs, I don’t know.
I’ve been having my PTSD therapy which has helped, small steps and all that, but it has helped. I worry that going to Rape Crisis counselling could potentionally undo all of the progress I have made due to the therapy, but then again I feel like I would be a fool not to at least attend this initial appointment..?
I hate not knowing what to do for the best.
