Abuse chat free room sexual victim
(Click here to find your time zone) “You gave me hope 🙂 Crying tears of happiness because I finally had someone listen and help me.” Reaching out for help can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never spoken to anyone about the abuse before.
Sometimes it’s hard to describe how you’re feeling out loud.
You get the same one-on-one, real-time, confidential information from a trained advocate as you do if you contact The Hotline by phone.
The Hotline’s live chat service (IM-style) is a safe, private way to connect with a Hotline advocate.This is often confusing or embarrassing for victims and may be misunderstood as a sign of sexual pleasure but this is a very common, automatic physical reaction.Just like in the cases of crying while cutting an onion or laughing when tickled, these are not responses that a victim has control over and they are in no way indicative that what took place was consensual sex.Here you may speak freely without identifying yourself.At times the path to healing may seem an arduous and somewhat frightening one, but you don't have to go through it alone.
