It will take time to heal your wound honey. In the mean time, you will have to keep yourself occupied with as many activities as you could. This is not avoiding what happened, but simply to move on with life. It hurt sno matter what, but like you said, you have to try and maintain a normal existence as best as you could. I would suggest the following:

- Plan one day, or one week at a time. Have a schedule for the next week.

- Fill out each day with activities and how long you will spend doing: school/work, dinner with friends, chat with your mum, walk the dog, cook dinner for the family/learn to cook, join a book club, volunteer at the local community, whatever, anything that takes time and puts you in the company of others.

- Try something you have never done before, a new sport is preferable.

- If all the above fail, schedule to watch some drama on youtube, choose one that's most addictive.

Remember, you are not alone. There are a lot of people out there who are willing to listen, to help, to hold you and give you hugs, when you are ready. We are here for you.

Many hugs, kisses and love.

hey hun, there's no need to worry about anything, you are fine :-) I have gone through the same sort of thing was abused for a yr by my granddad when i was 7 but i really enjoy the company of men and am not afraid of them :-) we all have to get over things to move on with our lives ;-) what music makes u happy? try listening to coco and the butterfields-warriors   that always cheers me up :-) and don't isolate yourself from people. family is the most important if you can have it with you they need to know what's going on so they can support you through this ;-) and if u care bout the ****** who did it we can put our minds together and have a look :-) xx

You poor thing. I too when I was a teen was nearly assaulted and that was bad enough. You need to go straight to the police who will help you with this. They are experienced, trained and understand what you are going through and have the right contacts to help you through this. If there is a family member or friend you can open up to I can assure you it will help. You aren't alone ever there is always somebody waiting to help x
