We have a new patient today.
He’s twice my age.
He followed one young female patient around asking her questions and harassing her all day…
Until he gave up…all his advances were met with silence.
So, he turned his attentions to me.
I refused for an hour to tell him my name.
He got my name from someone else and sang it to me…touched my back and told me, “I’d like to get to know you.”
It feels…so wrong.
But the staff does nothing to protect us.
It’s very unnerving…I have a friend on the outside who once raped by another patient. Maybe I’m overreacting…
But he touched me and sang my name…and we just met.
Does not feel safe.
