This is a real life thing.

A designer at an online scrap booking store I sometimes shop at had been scarce for the past three months. It turns out she woke up to a man on top of her, her face covered. She screamed, he pistol whipped her several times until she shut up and then he raped her. Then he made her shower. Her husband was on a business trip and her kids weren't home (they think that was on purpose, he waited until she was alone).

They moved from where they were living in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands back to the States.

She's currently in therapy to recover from the PTSD and the trauma.

This has really, really bothered me. It's a nightmare come true. Well, one of them. She mentioned American rape culture when she wrote about it. But now this fear of mine has bubbled back up to the surface. I mean, it was *planned*. I just can't -- no, I *can* imagine it, and that's the awful horrible part of it.

I don't know exactly why I'm writing about this. It's upsetting, and I can't get it out of my head now.
