At times it can feel like on the road to recovery from rape is a full-time job all by itself. Confusing emotions may besiege the survivor. She may be unable to sleep at night and incapable to stay awake during the day. She may have problem thinking clearly, concentrating, and making decisions. (Grossman) Some women have no option but to put their feelings aside and go on dealing with the strain of their daily reality. Some victims find that they feel recovered if they carry on with their normal schedule as much as possible.

The best family members and friends to turn to are those who will stay composed and who will not censure, condemn, or try to take over. It is fine to have more than one person to rely on; some people are no good at dealing with severe emotions, but marvelous about handy things like babysitting or giving transportation to a medical engagement. After the early crisis, a support group can help to break down seclusion, silence, and embarrassment. The survivor can see that women she likes and values have had experiences similar to her own, and that they like and respect her.

“Many trauma survivors who endured much worse than I did, and for much longer, found, often years later, that it was impossible to go on. It is not a moral failing to leave the world that has become morally unacceptable. (Brison p. B10)
