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
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!
It happened to me once. For a few weeks it feels terrible, and I even had a nightmare or two about it. But like all things it really does fade with time. I can't even remember the last time I'd recalled it until I saw this thread.
That's the problem, I have always been very security minded, to the point of paranoia. But this didn't help and just a second of distraction cost me this. I guess that if it has to happen, it will. Thank you for writing : )
