Today I want to live...live for the better, regain lost strength, and explore unknown knowledge.

With my safe place...the last thing I need to do is get pins to hang up my purple Christmas lights

Honestly, nothing really turns me on anymore after being raped and all...looking back and writing this down to only have people making fun of the fact that I can't handle anything sexual right now.... it really traumatized me more, this disfuntion of mine it's a curse that will turn into a blessing.

I am able to focus on people's personalities vs attractions.
I am able to focus on other needs like education and work.

But I honestly feel that part of me is shut off... I haven't been able regain composure.

Looking back I realized that after all that has happened I'm bisexual but more pansexual now.... But for right now again I can't even handle sexual thoughts, without flashing back to those moments...I'll talk about it with my therapist soon on how I feel about this now.

IMA,
You are aware of your sexuality and I think that means you've kept some power in knowing that, despite the violations.
I think people laughing is their problem, really.
I remember this quote I read that kinda relates:
You shouldn't be worried about what I'm doing...you should be worried about why your worried about what I'm doing. :)

Addressing this in therapy is a smart idea since the images and thoughts are there in an intrusive way.
I do that a lot.

It's weird how you can eat something over hundred times and forget how good it tastes on the tongue.
my favorite foods are:
1. Pancakes
2. Waffles
3. Scrambled Eggs
4. Fried rice with tofu
5. Milo
6. And ....
