Update on the Situation

January 5th, 2007 at 08:43 am

I've read all of the comments made on my last blog about my robbery, and firstly I want to say thank you to everyone who responded. That kind of support and caring counteracts the complete disregard and violation of person. There are good people still out there, and all of you, along with my family, friends, and coworkers have helped me to keep believing that.

A couple of your responses in particular:

Tiki: Anxiety and panic attacks are definitely following. Being alone in the dark, even in my own house is difficult right now. Luckily I have a great boyfriend to keep close and a positive outlook. I'm a psych major and I have plenty of resources available to me if I need help, thankfully. I'm sure, though, it will take some time to feel really secure. And thanks for the hugs Smile

PricePlus: This has been the one thing running through my head the most over the last few days. See, I KNOW I'm an easier target when I'm on the phone. The problem is that I always wanted my BF to be available to get me help if he wasn't there, which is why I was talking on the phone. I'm usually very aware of my surroundings, and I usually cross the street way before a person could approach me. The problem was that this woman was crouching down in the dark. I thought she was a dog at first. At any rate, I wont be walking home alone again. Period. I'd rather pay the money to get a cab. I will say, however, that I'm glad I was on the phone at the time. Had I not been, my phone would have been gone with my purse, and I'm not sure what I would have done. BF walked me through everything after the woman drove off. I couldn't thank him enough now.

And now the update... I went back to Ohio for a couple of days to replace some of the things that were stolen, along with my glasses that were knocked off. I'm lucky to have family like mine, that's all I can say. My parents offered to pay for my glasses, and BF's grandparents replaced my purse and wallet, as well as taking us to Sam's club to stock up on some essentials. I replaced my ID yesterday, and spent a considerable amount of time with my best friend, which made things feel much better.

A detective called me yesterday and said they think they know who it was. They're coming to my apartment on Sunday to show me a photo spread, and I'm hoping I'll be able to identify the woman. I'll also be giving the detective my credit card information, and hopefully those transactions will lead him further in the right direction. My landlord is changing our locks, so we'll have a little added security there.

Mentally and physically I feel okay. There's still a little bruise on my face and my nose is still a little messed up. I'm not nervous until dark. I know everything will be alright eventually. All I can do now is wait and try to get these people and thank everyone I can for all the love and support they've given me. It's meant so much to me.

    This may sound funny, but be sure to get your nose checked out. I hurt my nose when I was a teenager and it caused all sorts of problems till I had surgery as an adult.

    I am very sorry you had to endure such a terrible experience and hope you will find peace.

  6. PRICEPLUS Says:

    The most important thing is that you are okay!WinkSmile

    I am glad you are starting to feel better. I hope that your sense of security won't take too long to come back to you, at least in your own home, where you need to feel safe. You will make it out the other side, just try not to rush yourself to just get over it because that just makes things worse.

    When we were robbed last year it was several months before I felt okay going outside my house after dark. Fortunately, stuff was stolen from the outside of our property, not within our home or off our persons. And DH was home when it happened and nearly caught them, but they ran faster. But it still made me uneasy for a long time. I can't even imagine your feelings, as an assault makes it so much worse. You'll be okay. It'll take time, but you'll be okay.
