Hi guys

I didnt post this for crime debate.

The aim of this is to inform an prevent and educate.

I went through this and it doesnt matter what country it is.

The goal here is to not have anyone else fall in this trap.

Thanks

Sorry you went through that man.

If I may, when you reported it to SAPS, they should have a Trauma Counseling goup attached to their precinct. They might phone you to offer a session or 2 to talk you through it. I would highly recommend taking them up on it.  It's free and will help you digest what happened.  They aren't cops, they are volunteers that are trained to just run you through it and help you get started dealing with the psychological side of it.

My wife did this for a good while at Sandton SAPS. (she's taking  break currently due to other commitments).  But it's legit.

I am seeing someone to work through this. What is troubling thou is that its not affecting as badly as i thought it would.
Thanks for all the support from everyone.

nothing worth getting ever came without effort

Keep seeing the person, your reaction may be delayed, mine took about a year to manifest itself - bad dreams followed by a temper with a short fuse etc.
It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.
