DS -

I am so sorry - I wish I had the answers for you - the good news is - therapy WILL help with all of this.

as far as the fear of being stalked or the phone calls -

how about getting caller id - or an answering machine - or voice mail - that way it's all recorded - or change your number if possible - or if you need that number - get a cell phone, cheap plan, and have the most important people you know call you on that and don't answer the other one until after it goes to the answering machine.

could you get a ride home with a friend or other coworker for a while? use the buddy system?

wish I had the answers - cuz I feel your pain in your posts - but unfortunately, this is not something I am really familiar with.

keep going to therapy - I think in the scheme of things this will help alot....I know the meds will help reduce some of the anxiety too.

Ali-

Good suggestions-

DS, you also can get a personal alarm to carry on your keychain from radio shack for like $7.00, and of course, pepper spray. You can practice using it, by drawing a face on a paper plate and using up a few canisters (wear goggles) and taping it to a building outside and spraying in they eyes. Also, take self defense classes. Call your local police dept and ask about RAD (rape, agression, defense..you can read about it online) courses..they often are free or $25 and excellent (only 4 sessions and then free if you ever want to go again). You can even get a used cell phone no longer in service, and it still works with 911, many people don't know that. Many women's shelters give them out for free. Buy the book The Gift of Fear. IT is cheap and well worth it. You need tools to beat the bad guys at their own games.

i have a cell phone, that is my only phone...they keep calling it and it always shows up as "unknown".

when the stalker was really calling all the time, i didn't answer the unknown calls. now i have to because of what happened saturday, the police are supposed to be keeping in touch, and they always call from an unknown number, so i answer it, thinking it is the police.

i am TOTALLY freaked out right now.

I just got off the phone with the police, trying to get some answers. they don't even have a record of the "gun incident" on saturday. the only thing they could find was something from the 2 of this month, when i caught another bad check writer. she went to jail too, but it was uneventful.

i feel like i am completely losing my mind. no one has any record of this, i know my manager has the detective's name, but i can't get that until friday when i go back to work.

i'm too freaked out right now to do anything. i feel like i'm being watched all the time. i can't focus on anything, and it's literally killing me.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

stop by at work or call your boss and ask for the detective's name if it will help - I am sure your boss can give it to you over the phone or if you stop - why wait until friday?
