Yesterday a thief broke in and stole my laptop and my handbag. A lot of personal items, including a self-assuring journal, some personal docs and my ID were taken away from me. Although I contacted the police, I have lost hope of retrieving the stolen items. And I feel completely violated, knowing that someone out there might be toying with my information. I don't know what to do, I feel as if it's always going to haunt me...

I have back-ups. But yes, I should encrypt files or something, because the thief has them, too. Thanks.

I'm sure you meant robbed, which you weren't. You were burgled, which is different. That's when people break into your car/home etc. and thieve your things without your presence. Robbery, is when your personal things are forcibly taken from you through threat of personal injury or death. I've been just lucky enough to experience this very act, I know the difference.

Tough break on the burglary, though. More insurance in future for the material items, and invest in a safe for the personal ones. About all you can do, unfortunately.

Yes, you're right. And I just now saw the typo, facepalm. But yes, thankfully I wasn't held at knife or gunpoint, sorry to hear that you were. Insurance will do, although what I'm concerned about is not recoverable by insurance. I guess it's just the way life is. Thanks for writing.

Aww that sucks! I know exactly how you feel because I was in a similar situation. When I was younger, someone robbed our house. He stole a bunch of things, he also went into my room and left it in complete chaos (although he didn't take anything that belonged to me). I felt very violated afterwards, it felt creepy being in my room knowing someone was messing around with my things. It didn't help that the police were shit neither :X

It took me a while to get over it, and I think that's exactly what you need. My advice to you is to surround yourself with good friends, it could help if you have someone to speak to. You can even have them over at your place for a couple of days if you don't feel comfortable being there by yourself. I don't know why but I found that moving things around my room and rearranging it kind of helped. Just take it easy on yourself and I wish you the best of luck in sorting things out! :hug:

Thank you, I really appreciate your comment! :hug: I understand you, it also feels creepy knowing that your personal belongings are *out there* somewhere, in the hands of strangers.

Most likely the thief will just throw away your journal, documents and ID so you have little reason to worry about those things being toyed with by someone else.
