Not Sure.... - August 3rd 2009, 08:46 AM

Well, I wasn't really sure what category to put this thread into, so, i decided to put it here.

On January 13, 2009, 3 days before my birthday, I went out to by food for my dog. I was walking and, it was still light outside, and out of nowhere this guy comes out, and stands in front of me, to block me from walking. He takes out a kitchen knife, the knife is about 12 inches in length and he puts it twoards my chest. Of course, i turned pale, and he told me to take out everything i had ex.. my mobile, my keys, money, jewlery. and i told him i didnt have anything. He pressed the knife closer to my chest, and he said ima search you, you mother ******. so he searches me and he takes out my mobile, which i got for christmas, it cost $250. and he takes it from me. he then tells me to walk and not to turn around, or he would stab me. so i ran home, and my mum, called the police, they dragged us to the police station and made me look at 500 pics of criminals.. Later on they found him so everything turned out GREAT! (:

but.. now when i walk with anyone, even my parents, i have this fear of someone killing me, or something like that. and at night i always lock, windows doors everything. Is there anything i could do to get rid of this fear????

I'm really sorry this happened to you. I can't imagine how scary it would be, so of course it's not going to be easy to get rid of the fear. You did the right thing about telling someone.

I'd recommend talking to someone in person about this, confidentially. Or ring a hotline. And maybe the more you go out walking with someone, the more confident you will be. Everyone will understand that it's difficult for you. And everyone wants you to get over this fear. It will take time, but you will get there.

Take care x
