    Brave post. Thank you for your vulnerability. You are definitely not the only one going through this type of journey, and I’m glad you have a therapist to help guide you. Trauma absolutely makes me question if I’m dating the “right” way, taking things too fast or too slow. But there is no exact right way, and mistakes just help us learn how we might want to do it differently the next time (next date or next person).

      Thank you, Dusty, for your reply. I know, it’s hard sometimes. I’m glad some people understand that.

    I have experienced the “seizure activity” before. I have been abstinent for some time now and I know if I am ever touched again by a man, my body will definitely react in the same manner. I’m glad you wrote about this because it makes me feel less damaged and more confident that I will be able to have a relationship in the future despite the severe reaction of my body being touched by a man. Thank you !!

      Dear Lisa, thank you for being so open and sharing this with me. I am really glad to know that I’m not the only one to have this experience. Hope is important to have because when things are bad, we have to believe that there will be better times ahead, even if it takes a long time. It took 5 years for me to recover from the abuse and I was abstinent during that time.
