Many friends and family tell me they don't contact me because "they feel funny not knowing how to help, or what to do for me."

I'll tell all you friends and family whom look at this site (none of mine do so I can say this); just call and say hello...ask how we are doing.

I know its tough, but think of us like a friend who might have had a car accident. Try ignoring the nature of our injuries and focus on maintaining contact. Not hearing from you further issolates us (which can become permanent for a lot of us).

You hit the nail right on the head with that analogy

Excellent point,one that I'm going to remember next time I try to tell someone what it's like to be a survivor, and I have had people ask me, "What do you do when you hear your loved one has been violated?". I'm blessed that so many people have reached out to me in so many ways.
So Robbie, how can we reach out to you?
