Have you been able to speak to someone about what happened to you?  It’s really important that you get the right support, both medical and psychological, after going through a traumatic experience.  Speaking to an adult that you trust can help support you through these things. 


You say that your dealing with anger after being assaulted?  It’s very natural to experience a mixture of feelings after something like this, and anger is a very common one, so it’s understandable that you would be feeling this way.  Maybe you could speak to your GP who would know of what supports are in your area and visit one of those?
