    020. Sexual Assault and Trauma with Lexi

    020. Sexual Assault and Trauma with Lexi

    Lexi shares her story of trauma and sexual assault as she seeks to help others that have struggled with similar experiences to reach out and find help. The trauma that comes from being raped or sexually assaulted can leave you feeling scared, ashamed, and alone. Your life may feel shattered as you are plagued with nightmares and flashbacks, you may no longer trust others or even yourself. It is important that you do not put the blame on yourself for what happened.

    It is important to remember that what you are experiencing is a normal reaction to trauma. Your feelings of helplessness, shame, and self-blame are symptoms, not reality. No matter how difficult it may seem, there is always a way out. Lexi's story is a story of strength and hope for those that have been sexually assaulted and feel hopeless.
