Abducted in Mexico at gunpoint when I was 18. Happy I'm here and lived to tell the tale.

So sorry to hear that nicj. I think it would be wise to take legal action. I spoke up about my sexual abuse two weeks ago. PM me if you ever need any help.

As weird as this sounds... thank alcohol. It's a long story, but youthful exuberance where ridiculously excessive drinking was concerned is what got us out alive.

One of the benefits of being a tall male that I try not to take for granted, I can't imagine how scary it must be to know somebody could overpower me and harm me in some way and I wouldn't be able to defend myself.

I was living in Mexico City. 3 guys tried to get me but I managed to get into my car an escape. I crashed against 2 parked cars and a garage door. They also shot a guard that as there. Fortunately, it was in his leg.

Many many times.
I have been shot at, stabbed, robbed, arrested and have been in more than my fair share of brawls with weapons and no weapons; just to name a few.
I look back on my past life and thank God that I have made it where I am today.

I'm sorry both of you went through that. The threat to me was with a gun and it was someone I knew. I've never been threatened by a random stranger. I'm so sorry pirate. That had to be terrifying.

Wow! My story isn't nearly so glamorous. I think the plan was to rape us & who knows what after that. But, I got sick in the overcrowded car & they had no choice but to pull over. Curbside, I became violently ill & very unattractive I'm sure.

Meanwhile,my friend who was a drama queen to begin w/had already lost her freakin' mind. I think it was all way more than they could handle & they were worried about us drawing attention & them getting caught. So they left us on the side of the road.

Yes, all of it was while I was young and in California. Once I moved to Michigan things got a lot more normal.

Yes, but I've never had justification. I'm a really paranoid person, so to me, a car driving by me at night automatically equals a drive by shooting.

Me too. Once by a group of guys on a dark street and once by someone I knew. Both times were more than by just words.

Well those are kind of two different things. When my car went in the ditch last year, I felt like my life was in danger. But I've never felt threatened by someone else.

Sitting on a ledge over my guess, a 150 foot drop. Wind was blowing all around me and my friends as our feet dangled over the edge. My mind kept thinking about slipping off over the edge freaked me out a bit almost making me think I was. Mt. Climbing

When I came up there was some slack in the choker & I managed to get out. I was a big 8th grader. 6'2" & athletic. Shoved him & bolted. Bike kept going after I was pulled off, so it was like 20 ft away. Grabbed it, carried it, hopped on & was gone.

Yeah, someone in an SUV wafted across the center line on my drive home from work tonight. With their high beams on. In the pouring rain. I had to guess how wide the shoulder was and use it all to dodge.

Sadly, no. He's still teaching, 7th grade now. I went to the vice principal, but I was told he was a good teacher and they wouldn't get rid of him. Emailed his new boss, too, but he's still there. :/

I had a gun stuck in my ribs & fired over my head point blank.

It was 50 years ago but it's as vivid in my mind as yesterday.
