The way he was laying on the ground, the blood on his face... sorry, it's kind of painful thinking about it. There was one post a while ago where I basically described what happened, idk it was probably removed cuz it was graphic. I'll look for it...

Oh ok, I can picture it now.

Are you seeing your therapist now?
I am a bit confused after reading your threads, I can't work out how long you have had one and how often you have seen them.

I think you should call the cops, people like him need to be stopped from harming others.

Over here in the uk, we have vigilante's, unpaid hero's that patrol the streets, looking out for law breakers and stuff.

Have you ever thought about doing that?

Communities need people like you who are not afraid of defending themselves.

It might also help you move on from the shooter, being there for others.

If you didn't want to be recognised you could wear a mask or something.

I couldn't do it, I would be too scared of getting hurt.

I just started seeing a therapist, I'm seeing her Wednesday for the second time, the first time I was real nervous cuz I'd never been to a therapist before so I lied about a bunch of stuff. I'd talked to my doctor before about my depression but I haven't seen her since before the shooting, seeing her on Monday.
If I call the cops it would have to be tomorrow, seeing them would bring on major panic attacks, there were lots of them and sirens when the shooting happened, and I'm already weirded out by this, plus I just took some sleeping meds.

As for vigilante work, I don't know, probably not, but if I see something bad going down I'd definitely help.

Found the post if you're interested, it's on page 2 of "at least I have a reason now" in the suicide section. And I don't know why I said hibatchi, it was a convenience store, I had had hibatchi earlier that day.

No point in lying about anything Dizzy we are only dishonest with ourselves at the end of the day.

I still think you should consider the vigilante work it might heighten your self esteem.

Yes, I am interested I will read that and all your posts again.

Thank you.

I feel warmer knowing there are people like you in this world who stand up for themselves.

You are a hero and are amazing.

Thank you, you really made me feel so much better
sleeping meds are finally kicking in, plus it's 4:10am, so I'm going to sleep now. Thank you again for caring.

I agree that the idea is good that you should report the attack to the police. I think I might talk with someone first who could help you decide how important that would be to help yourself or society. There is no use in incriminating yourself for doing harm to that man out of self defense, or making yourself liable to him since you messed him up pretty well. I would only report it in case he decides to go to the cops to say you attacked him and beat him up for no reason. That would be my motivation for making any kind of sworn statement in this case- if it helps to protect you. If you know anyone who you think would be wise to run that incident by from a legality or self-protection kind of standpoint, I would do that. I can talk with people I know to try and get a second opinion, but unfortunately I'm not well acquainted with any law enforcement officers at this time.

Be proud of your strength and resilience in the face of danger. I know some guilt can be an after-effect of having defended yourself and I hope you don't feel it. You did what was necessary and you were thoughtful afterward towards him, which says a lot.
