RAPE?: If this happened within the past 24 hours go to the ER RIGHT THIS MINUTE. Tell somebody what happened. They are there to help and not judge. You need to be checked out IMMEDIATELY for STD's.

I am in this case more concerned about the traumatic effects about what happened to you. There are professionals that can help you with this and your sleep and overall health and well-being. I am sorry this happened to you and perhaps with the appropriate professional discuss how best to respond to a criminal/violent act that could leave some lasting scars.
