I have a fear of being touched on the back

by Rosa
(Austin, Texas)

When I had just turned thirteen, I was put in a bad situation where I was beaten badly and nearly raped. I remember him holding me down by pressing his entire weight on my back through his hands.

Ever since this happened, I cannot stand to have people touch my back (especially with their hands). If someone ever does touch my back, I tense up and become panicked and/or become violent towards the ones who touched me.

I've learned some self-control, but it is still a big issue for me to this day.
