I'm here. The detachment is receding. I seem to be no worse for wear after my little attempted rape episode on Sunday night. There is still anger and some pretty wild mood swings. I didn't have the starch to face any down-votes yesterday so I didn't post...Hows that for a measure of mental health? Can you take what E2 (sometimes) has to dish out?? Yes? Then you'll be fine...

I have to say that having gone through the process with the police (so far) has been an eye-opener. Every person I have come into contact with has been extremely respectful and caring and concerned. One of my worries was all the horror stories you see about victims of crime on T.V. but I have experienced none of that.

My heart goes out to anyone who has ever been the victim of violence; I have a new respect for all of you.
