Hello, I am new to this as my therapist just recommended that this would be helpful for me. I recently came out as bisexual and this has been a hard thing for me to deal with. For the longest time, I rejected this part of myself because of the assault that happened to me. I thought that there was no way that I could be attracted to men when a man is the one who did this to me and left me scarred. Now that I am out though, I am scared of what is going to happen when I get in a serious relationship with a man. Right now I can't imagine myself being sexual with a man without triggering flashbacks and making me panicked and stressed. I know this is who I am, I can imagine myself falling in love with another man, but anything that becomes sexual scares me. No one understands what I am going through. My friends who have helped me come out are supportive and all, but no one really understand the struggle and fear I have. I am hoping that I am not alone in thinking this and that posting on here I can find others going through similar situations to me.
