If so, how long does it take for you to feel safe again?
This is night 2 for me. Last night, the kids and I all slept in my bed. Tonight, they're at their dad's, so I'm home alone, and petrified. They stole my handbag and it's contents, went through it outside, took what they wanted, then dumped the rest. They took everything out of my wallet, my iPod, and my car/house keys. The fact that they kept my keys has me convinced that they're coming back. I have had all the house locks changed (not the car as yet), so theoretically, I know they can't get in, not unless they smash a window, but I'm still so scared. I don't think that they'll smash a window; they're opportunists who got in through my broken back door, and also to the neighbouring unit through an open window, but I'm just not feeling safe. I'm so creeped out; we were all at home asleep while they were going through our house.... I had my daughter and her best friend sleeping on the sofa bed, a mere 50cm away from the door they walked in and out of. So creepy.
Soooo...... someone convince me that I'm safe?
If this has happened to you, do you eventually feel safe again?
