Hi mikedom78,

Sorry to hear about what happened. It sounds like you are feeling paranoid around either the person or the attack - if it's the latter, then you may feel anxious around any stranger, expecting them to attack you in the same manner. After experiencing such an incident, it's quite common to feel paranoid - however, it's not okay! I'd suggest you see a counsellor for a while to cope with what has happened - things can definitely get better!x

Much love <3

Hi and welcome!

that was an awful experience. I was once attacked like that coming back from the gym club where I was a coach. Four yobs, for no reason at all. I wasn't left unconscious and the x-ray showed no damage - only bruises. I suffered bad PTSD and soon gave up coaching there for the stress of meeting them again was too much. (The police were pretty useless)

You have PTSD and therapy may help you overcome it. What you're now suffering is perfectly understandable and a normal reaction to such traumas. It will pass in time - even without therapy, but the memory of it will never disappear. I'm on the autism spectrum, which means that panic attacks are quite a 'normal' aspect of life - something I'm forever trying to avoid. It must have been horrible for your family. I hope your attackers got caught. Those few selfish, evil people in the world spoil it for all the rest of us. x
