Anger is another very common feeling and that anger may have been inside you for a long time.
It will help to find a safe way of expressing that anger.
You don't need to turn the anger onto yourself - you have done nothing wrong - you need to start taking care of yourself - a person who has been abused needs all the love and support in the world.
You may find it very difficult to trust and that is understandable because your trust has been betrayed.
It is important to remind yourself that you are now an adult and not a child and nobody is hurting you now, you are safe, try and take slow deep breadths and this will help you to feel less anxious and panicky.
To bring yourself back into the present there are things which help like stamping your feet on the ground, clapping your hands, look at the room you are in, listen to the sounds you can hear, remind yourself that you are an adult and safe.
It can be easier to blame the survivor than face the fact that someone within the family has abused you.
If you are an adult who was abused as a child it is possible that you may have never spoken to anyone about this.
Many adults keep this a secret well into their adult life and many find that the effect upon them has had devastating consequences not only throughout their childhood but also in their adult life.
You may find that you have difficulty in sexual relationships because this can remind you of the abuse.
Talk to your partner, if there is something which makes you feel uncomfortable talk about that, you may need to stop for a while, it may help you for your partner to remind you where you are, you are in the present, you are safe. Believe in yourself that you have the strength and ability to move forward with your life.
