Hi, I'm new here and really appreciate the supportive place to gather. I posted my story in "Aftermath." It's an odd thing because I've had numerous violations from men, ranging from them exposing themselves to me, a drug-related rape, molest by doctor at age 14, etc. And I think of myself as a pretty strong person, have grieved and moved forward. This latest episode, which went on about six months, has left me feeling incredibly fragile, anxious and depressed. Very surprising to find myself feeling so strongly about what happened. 

Anyway, thanks for reading my post and best wishes to everyone here who is suffering, I wish you all healing and supportive people in your lives.

Hi, I'm new here and really appreciate the supportive place to gather. I've been cyber-stalked for several months and it appears to be dying down but now the mop-up begins. I posted more details in "Aftermath." It's an odd thing because I've had numerous violations from men, ranging from them exposing themselves to me, a drug-related rape, molest by doctor at age 14, etc. And I think of myself as a pretty strong person, have grieved and moved forward.

But reading about it, this is not unusual for people cyber-stalked to have PTSD.

Hello @treading water, and welcome to AS!

I am sorry to hear about the cyber stalking, that must have been terrifying. I don't think the fact that it is online makes it any less disturbing, but perhaps its also triggering some older feelings too.  I have always found this community safe and well moderated and I hope you will feel supported here too. :notalone:
