A few years ago I had a bf that ended up going to jail for assault. A judge granted me a restraining order to keep me safe but it ends this summer on my 18th birthday. I'm worried not that he stalk me but that he may try to hurt my current Bf or my family. Do you have any tips to help me relax my overly stressed nerves? My anxiety is overwhelming me and it is effecting my school work.
You said this happened a few years ago. If you still feel threatened by him, then go to your local police department and speak to someone about it. That would definitely calm your nerves to know that you can extend your restraining order. If that's not a possibility, I would go and purchase some pepper spray. Never leave the house alone and always keep your cellphone close. You could always talk some self defense classes to put your mind at ease. There is nothing wrong with being scared. At this point, your safety is the main priority. Keep your head on a swivle.
