Females in Combat
Rape/Sexual Assault Support Programs!Altho I am a combat wounded Vietnam Veteran with a 100% service connected disability, my knowledge on the matter of rape or sexual abuse is ZERO. To present you with information of these subjects, to offer support and give assistance on where to find information, we are providing the following sites to help you.
If you wish to have some general tips on actions you should take if you have been raped please visit our Self Help Test Page. This page will give you information that is most helpful.
A Simple example!"I was raped when I was 25 years old. For a long time, I spoke about the rape on an intellectual level, as though it was something that happened to someone else. I was very aware that it had happened to me, but there just was no feeling. I kind of skidded along for a while.
"I started having flashbacks. They kind of came over me like a splash of water. I would be terrified. Suddenly I was reliving the rape. Every instant was startling. I felt like my entire head was moving a bit, shaking, but that wasn't so at all. I would get very flushed or a very dry mouth and my breathing changed. I was held in suspension. I wasn't aware of the cushion on the chair that I was sitting in or that my arm was touching a piece of furniture. I was in a bubble, just kind of floating. And it was scary. Having a flashback can wring you out. You're really shaken.
"The rape happened the week before Christmas, and I feel like a werewolf around the anniversary date. I can't believe the transformation into anxiety and fear."
