Hi my name is melissa and I'm 25 years old I was robbed at my job a couple of months ago. I worked 3rd shift and about 40 mins after I clocked in a man in black came to me and asked for change when I opened up the register he pulled out a gun and told me to give him all of the money or he would kill me. My manager wasn't around at the time and the security guard was in the back. I have never been so scared in my life! I gave him the money and automatically called my manager after he left. I felt like I couldn't breath, I heard my heart beating so loudly. We called the police and all I could do was shake and cry. After they were done asking the same questions over and over again I was able to go home. I couldn't sleep and when my husband had to go to work I panicked and started to sob. I couldn't be left alone, if I was i started to have a panic attack and cry. I've went to my doctor and they prescribed me depression pills and anxiety pills. It has been a couple of months since the robbery but I'm different. I hate being crowded. If there is alot of people in my house I have panic attacks and I have a big family. This thanksgiving I had all of my family over and I hated it. I wanted them to leave right away. If my husband and I go out to a friends or to the store I want to come home right away. I don't have nightmares anymore which is a good thing but I still have anxiety and I'm so angry at the littlest things. I have changed since being robbed at my job and my worst fear is that the man who did it knows where I live since he wasn't caught. That I would see him on the street. I was switched off 3rd shift and I'm on 1st but I hate the register still. If I see a man that looks like him I freak out! What is wrong with me? I had my husband put in a security alarm, we got a dog. What can I do to stop this??!! I want to be my cheerful self again, not this person that I don't recognize!
