One who knows I was once indecently asaulted by some one at work i knew and thought i could trust. Believe me you go into total shock and this leaves you rooted to the spot and your mind goes completely blank.I consider my self to be a strong and fiesty woman and never thought this could happen to me. For a long time i thought the problem was with me and i thought that there was something wrong with me. I know now that the problem lay with him not me and i believe he did this to 'take me down a peg or two' . A lot (not all) men despise strong women.I also believe he had this in his mind for quite some time and he was convinced that there would be no come backs on him. A long story, basically i took it no further as it was his word over mine and i was in no position to put my job on the line ( late eighties, high interest rates) I believe from my experience that the best form of defence is common sense and a womans intuition. I am very much on my guard now and i do not trust men in general. aways go with your gut feeling and avoid being alone with men. Keep your wits about you always, trust your inner judgement.Looking back i just think i was in the wrong place at the wrong time, if it was not me it would be some one else. I am now happy and settled, living a good life, i do not see myself as a victim, that peice of **** invaded my body but not my inner spirit. I am a better stronger person than he will ever be, and what goes around comes around. Hope this helps.
