I was drugged with GHB and raped 4 years ago while I was in school and living in NY. I basically bottled everything up inside and just tried to forget about it. I was hospitalized for 13 days and therefore kicked out of school. I never reported it to the police and just moved back home. I'm back in school, first time since, and the floodgates have broke open. I keep having flashbacks and the nightmares and its really starting to affect me in school and in my personal life. I never told anyone about it except my for husband which was almost a year after the incident. I haven't really brought it up since then so now he doesn't understand how it could bother me so bad 4 years later. Its not his fault, he just doesnt understand. I never even cried about it until now and am feeling incredibly sad and hopeless. Believe me, this has NOTHING to do with getting attention hence the fact that I've never told anyone else about it.
