This tortured mind of mine won’t rest
Anxiety, depression, thoughts of terror possessed
Repulsive memories flash through my mind
In bits and pieces discombobulated and intertwined.
Day’s are dark, and night grow blacker with each sleep, leaving me breathless, restless, petrified and fatigued.
With each passing night the nightmares take fight
And every passing day, the flashbacks come out to play
There is no end in sight to this tournaments ignite
Each breath that I take, and blink that I make I wish for abrogation!
Alas, forlorn my hopes and efforts
As tortured mind, a tortured being, a toured soul, attains no rest

While some of the information is helpful, I couldn’t help but become furious when they say that flashbacks are a good sign. Seriously? I am a smart, well educated woman, and I highly doubt that the author of this article was ever raped. If she or he was, …. the English language is comprised of so many words, they could have chosen more appropriate language that would have conveyed the same message.
Initially I was going to post the entire article, but I am clearly partial now. I just think that it had so much great and helpful information, and was ruined by saying flashbacks are good.
Even if they are, personally, I don’t want to re-live my rape every single day at random times! I don’t find that helpful at all.
Maybe I am being too harsh, I did post the link because there is some great information there.
And, not all people are the same. I am sure that there are thousands of survivors that actually need to hear those words.
It is a great article despite my personal one (small ) issue with it.
I would actually love to hear feedback, positive or negative on the article and/or my post. All comments are welcome and appreciated.
