Coping After Rape and Sexual Assault
Take things at your own pace. There is no right or wrong about how long it can take to come to terms with something like this.
It can be hard to look after ourselves when we are going through a traumatic time, but it is important to try to eat and sleep as well as you can. Everything can seem much harder to cope with when you are tired and run down.
You don’t have to cope alone.
Share your thoughts and feelings about your experience with a trusted friend or family member, partner or another survivor.
You can also speak in confidence to a trained rape crisis support worker on Rape Crisis Helpline or at Fife Rape and Sexual Assault Centre.
