DIYQueen Posted February 21, 2018 Share Posted February 21, 2018 My life was really looking up over the past eight or nine months. I changed my major, I met my SO, I started a new job, and my grades went up. I felt like I was more involved with school and friends than ever before. It was awesome. Before things started to improve, something really upsetting happened. I was sexually assaulted by someone who I considered to be a friend. I went down the right avenues with the police and with the university. I stopped hearing updates on the investigation, so I figured it was on the back burner. I just moved on with my life. On Thursday, I finally heard the conclusion of the investigation. The guy who did this is going to be suspended from the university for two years. I also received the reports from both sides of the story. It made me sick to my stomach to read his side. I then received notification that he is planning on appealing the school's decision. He is adamant that he did not do anything wrong. I can't shake the "fight or flight" response that my body is giving. I can't function the way I was. I ended up ditching class today because I broke down as soon as I got in my car. I'm scared that if this guy thinks of me as a tease and a liar who would make a false accusation, who else does? I'm going to have to attend a hearing to give my statement, but I'm so afraid that nobody is going to believe me. I'm also scared that my current anxiety and depression is going go scare my boyfriend away. Ive struggled with depression and anxiety for years, but it started getting worse again shortly before I received all this news. I'm so scared that he's going to get tired of it. That everybody around me is going to get tired of it. Everything was going so well. I was so happy with my SO, my work in school, my job, and my life. Now I feel like I'm going to lose it all.
