    Yes, it can and does get easier, hun, but it helps a great deal to be able to talk about it in a safe place where everyone understands. Register for an account and join us on the main boards. You'll find many ladies you can relate to and it's a good, safe, neutral place. No one is judged, no one is doubted.

    I second what Dale said about it getting better and agree that joining this community could be really helpful for you. There are so many other women here who have similar stories and can share with you how they made it through and what they did to help themselves heal. I think you'd find a lot of information and support :)

    I know it sucks to have nightmares and not get much sleep as a result but that is your mind's way of telling you it is time to deal with what has happened. There are lots of ways to start to make things easier for yourself including being here and reading others' posts and writing your own, journaling, setting aside time each day to let all the feelings roll through you, and the list can go on and on. The best place to start, though, is with being easy and gentle with yourself. Allow yourself to feel what you feel.

    I hope you'll join our fabulous community!

    Take care,
    Viki

    It does get easier hun. I think most of us here have gone through a stage of thinking about 'what if' but we have to learn to accept that things are not going to change. Come and make an account and join us all on the other side where you can speak to many women who have been through what you have. Hugs
