    Firstly, thank you for sharing your experience with all of us. It sounds like it was a really scary thing to happen, and it’s really powerful to hear how much it affected you. It seems like you’ve managed to turn this bad experience into something positive through going back to martial arts training, and that’s really inspiring.

    For anyone else who has gone through a similar thing, remember that you do not have to deal with this by yourself. Being attacked can affect people in different ways, and it can help to talk to someone about how you’re feeling. This could be a friend, family member, doctor or anyone else that you trust.

    You could also think about talking to Victim Support, which is an organisation that provides support to people who have been a victim of crime. Their number is 0845 30 30 900 and there is more information about them on their website:

    Remember as well that you can always talk to us at Meic.

    If you’re worried about your safety when you’re out and about, there are a few things you could think about doing. Here are some ideas from Victim Support:

    * Stay in groups and look out for each other
    * Be aware of your surroundings. Avoid dark or lonely short cuts and think about safe places to walk like well-lit areas and shops
    * Trust your instincts – if you feel unsafe, get away
    * Before you go out, tell someone where you are going and when you will be back
    * Keep expensive possessions hidden
    * Don’t listen to music when you’re out and about (or use only one headphone so you are still aware of what’s going on around you)
    * Carry a personal alarm

    There are more safety tips on the Victim Support website:

    or from an organisation called the Suzy Lamplugh Trust:

    Thanks again for sharing your experience so bravely.

    All the best,

    The Meic team
