Whoa.  I would have counseling every day until I started feeling better.  I don’t know what to suggest, do you have a security system set up?  Have you thought about staying with some friends/family temporarily.  Take some self defense classes?

You have my thoughts, I’m very sorry.

I’m so sorry to hear this!  To be attacked in the one place you should always feel safe would be a nightmare. 

I don’t know any of support groups. I really just wanted to comment to show my support for you.  Please stay in counseling though!!  Maybe go more times a week!  Hopefully your counselor will have resources in your area that she can give to you.  Also, remember and try to take comfort in, that your attack was not a random attack.   It was a sick person you knew and you know where they are.  As long as they are in the psych ward, they can NOT hurt you.  After Oct. 3rd, if he is released, this won’t help.  But maybe it will help you in the meantime.

Sorry I’m not a bigger source for information.  But I’m sending good thoughts your way. I’m so sorry this happened to you!

Go to your Dr…..they should be able to direct you to a support group.

Im so sorry to hear about this. I hope everything works out. You need to treat the emotional issues you are having…post tramatic stress possibly.

 

Good luck to you. Lean on hubby for support.

Oh man, that’s terrible to hear. Are you and Fiance living together? I would suggest not being alone for the time being, just for your mental well being. I would also suggest seeing a therapist – they would hopefully be able to find a support group for you as well.

As for your family’s advice, I don’t think an experience like this is one you can just forget… even if rationally you know it’s true. I’m sorry this happened to you.

@SoontobeMrsA: Wow that is so terrible!!! Im glad you wont have any lasting injuries. Personally, I would buy a tazer or a gun. I know you have a small child so you may not be comfortable having that in the house, but for the piece of mind, for me personally it would be worth it. Maybe go get a rottweiler puppy and train him as a guard dog?

Oh my goodness! Prayers to you for peace and comfort!

I haven’t heard from you in a while. Is this related to that creep that made your facebook?

Call the police, they will have information on support groups for victims of violent attacks.

I’m so sorry this happened to you. I agree with PPs, your counselor or doctor should have plenty of resources to offer you.

I just noticed your location – It wasn’t the same suspect that attacked a woman in Lowell was it? So scary!

@SoontobeMrsA: Oh my god, this is so horrible. I’d recommend seeing a therapist who specializes in PTSD, for starters. I really don’t have any advice beyond that, but I really hope that they don’t let this guy out. My thoughts are with you and your family. xoxo
