Please call 911 for the appropriate police department and contact the Office of Psychological Services for Women at 214-768-4795. If you have just been raped or sexually assaulted, it is important for you to get help immediately.
Even if the assault occurred some time ago, sexual assault can continue to affect you emotionally and physically. You may be experiencing a variety of feelings: shock, denial, fear, numbness, mistrust, powerlessness, and/or self-blame. These feelings may cause you to behave in ways you normally would not. You may be experiencing disturbances in your sleeping patterns, and your eating habits may change. You may find that you do not wish to be alone or that you fear strangers.
Remember that recovery takes time and that counseling can help you deal with these issues and concerns.
