I saw your post on the SH board and just wanted you to know that although no one has written back to you yet, I hear you. I can't imagine how scary this must be for you.

Don't know what else to say... Just that I hope you can avoid him...

and you may want to think about carrying some mace/pepper spray with you all the time.

This just occurred to me, and it may sound totally wacko, you may actually be safer this time around than when you were a child. Many predators who prey on children prefer their victims to be children -- not adults. Because you're grown up now, his interest in you may have waned. I'm not sure how much truth there is to this, but I do think it's got some research backing it up. I just hope there are no more children directly accessible to him.

Sigh. I'm sorry you're going through this. Sending you strength....

All I can give you right now is hugs. I know this is a stressful time for you. I hope you get in touch with your local police dept.

Hang in there
