So I'm moving in a few months and there are a few cheap apartments in a certain neighborhood in New York. The problem is that the person who sexually assaulted me almost 2 years ago lives in that part of town. I don't want to run into him or anything that reminds me of him. I already avoid the area we used to work in as much as possible.

Yesterday I was going to meet a friend, but when he said he was in a bar in that section of town my immediate reaction was to give up and go home. It was raining (it rained that night too), and the stop he wanted me to go to was the exact same stop. Luckily he texted me back and said another stop was actually closer, or else I probably wouldn't have gone. But still....

Surviving sucks some days, y'all...
