If it all feels too much
Sometimes the horrible feelings or memories people experience when they have been sexually abused or raped may feel completely overwhelming. This can be very frightening, leading people to feel they are ‘going mad’ or to perhaps have suicidal thoughts.
If you feel this way, try and remember that there are people who care and want to help you.
