I am feeling post traumatic stress about being cyber stalked. I was in a relationship once in which he cyber stalked me and actually stalked me. I will tell you this story sometime, maybe later today. But this is what has recently happened to creep me out and bring back memories of that guy who used to watch me online and also follow me places.
Truthfully, I think he is still attempting to find out where I am because he viewed my linked in account three times in the last month. I need help closing the account, if anyone knows how. I tried following the instructions at linked in but could not close the account. If anyone wants to help me, please put directions in the comments.
Yesterday, there was a message from a creepy guy on my facebook. I do not remember how or why I have him in my friends list. I think he is a facebook friend of my friend in baltimore. He must have friend requested me and I hit accept without thinking. Anyway, that must have been months ago because i have not been on facebook in a while.
He send me this creepy message yesterday that said, Please talk to me.I need you.
I responded “I do not recognize you. ”
He kept sending me messages that said” I need you” and “please talk to me.” He typed in broken english and broken thought patterns that were creepy.
I sent him a message, “I do not know you and I am busy now to be meeting guys online. Your messages that you need me are feeling creepy to me.’
so then he said “Better creepy than you do not talk to me”
So he kept sending messages like “please talk to me” “I need you” “better you talk to me” “better creepy that you do not talk to me” “creepy is you do not talk to me” “please talk to me”
Finally I had my 12 year old daughter bock him for me. I had her do that and show me how to do it , just in case i need to again.
So, today I woke up and I had 7 messages from guys I do not know on Skype. I was talking to my boyfriend on skype late last night and i fell asleep without closing it. So while i was sleeping, skype said i was online. Several guys that are strangers to me sent me requests to skype with them.
It was so scary and creepy to me. Do people just send messages to random women and ask to skype with them in the middle of the night?
So i sent my boyfriend a frantic message asking for help. He responded to me right away and helped me turn skype off . Later i will have him help me to keep from getting messages like that, if there is a way? Does anyone know? I thought skype was like a cell phone and people only call you if they have your phone number.
I do not understand the messages from strange guys in the night thing.
Sorry for the crazy rant. The guy that stalked me years ago, inflicted tremendous mental abuse on me. I barely got out of the house where i lived with him. last year in october 2013. After which he continued to cyber stalk me and show up at my job.
Part of me feels paranoid that one of the guys on skype is actually him, using a different name. I would not out it past him to spy on me that way and find out where I work.
Anyway, skype is offline now. Creepy guy on facebook is blocked.
My boyfriend is by his computer in case I need to send him an anxiety email. He does not like to see me tormented.I would feel better if he were here in person, but at least he is there in case I call or email.
So I will go out and do my last minute errands now. I feel like i will be looking around me for that truck that my ex has. It is a terrible feeling to know someone is following you around. I do not think he is anymore. My rational side tells me he is busy doing other things today. But my ptsd tells me to watch the cars around me today, so that I do not lead home with me
I don’t want to be paranoid but really, what are the chances of those things all happening within 12 hours and they also follow the fact that my ex viewed my liked in account repeatedly. Please somebody help me close the linked in account. I do not want ot open at all. he probably has already gotten my email address from the linked in account , which means he can plug it into the computer program he has to cyber stalk me and watch where i go online.
Now I will probably develop an OCD behavior about checking over and over to make sure skype is turned off. Like I need another ritual to perform… LOL
Send calming thoughts my way. It might help. Thank you for listening,
