Okay about 2 weeks ago i went to see a flat share on gumtree its similar to craigslist
the guy tried to mug me when i went to view, and grabbed hold of my coat demanding i give him everything on me,
well, being a girl i panicked and even though i was terrified, and he could have had a knife or anything, i shook free in the spur of the moment and
ran for the taxi i had waiting for me round the corner, and told the drive to go straight away
thank god i had a taxi as i didnt know the area, it probably saved my hide.
i reported it to the police and the guy was found and arrested but released the next day without charge
i was given `friendly advice` by the officer that he had arrested this guy before, and i was best avoiding him entirely as he knows very bad people
who are capable of very bad things. ugh
anyway, since then, even though i live in a different city to there, i have been terrified
i have cancelled all plans to move to that city, and im even too scared to look on gumtree again for anything
i never used to be like this till the other week, its like its turned me into an anxious nervous wreck, even here about 80 miles away from the city
where the incident happened, im still scared stiff that if i stay in a hotel i may see the person there or he may be nearby.
even though i got away thankfuly without being mugged or attacked in the end, i am still traumatised and an anxious wreck from it, i am wondering how
long this lasts for.
