  • Don't think that you are alone, reach out to your nearest support group for help.
  • It is normal to want to forget what happened and move forward as if, but this can have detrimental effects. Take time to heal in whatever way is suitable for you.
  • When you're comfortable, share what happened with a trusted individual. Talking about it can help you feel better and be a major step in the healing process.
  • Remember to stop and pay attention to how you're feeling every day, take time for yourself.
