Not in my case it wasn't.
I opened up this past week to a few friends about recently being a victim of a sexual assault. I'm not getting too hung up on the verbiage, so I'm just gonna leave it at sexual assault.
After I'd been getting messages from friends reaching out to ask what's wrong with me lately, I wanted to say that if my attitude has changed or I seem withdrawn lately, it is not because of anything other than me internalizing & trying to come to terms with what happened.
I've been having difficulty sleeping, forget to eat, been withdrawn, wake up multiple times during the night, get emotional at times, uncomfortable in unfamiliar surroundings.
Thank you to those who have reached out since finding out. I am working towards coming to terms with what happened & I'm already on board to meet with a therapist in the coming weeks.
That said, this is still very personal to me & I don't want to, nor will I answer any questions about who, what or how of the event. I try to keep my feed positive and uplifting; therefore, I will not be posting much about this going forward. My recovery is my own.
