Glass Bottle Thrown At Me

Recommended Posts

Guest Angelgrlsue

Hi everyone.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this so moderators if you wish to move it to a more appropiate category please do so. I was on my way back to the bus station from my doctor's office today around 4:00pm. Made it to the bus station alright and there was only one other man a few stalls down from where I was sitting on a bus bench that was covered. I did hear some people up above me on the second level laughing a joking around with one another. Was sitting at the bench for about five mintunes when a glass bottle came hurling over my head and landing in front of me breaking into pieces. The bottle was directed right towards. I immediately stood up and walked over quickly to where the man was and asked him if security was around. He said no and he did notice the bottle coming towards me as well, he did not see who threw it though. A bus came in after that and the man offered to ask the driver to call security. He did while he was taking his break. He went into the office building where the bus drivers usually take there breaks. After he came out he stated that he called them and then took off on his route. One bus came after he left and I just boarded my bus, I wanted to get home as soon as possible and not wait around being unsafe there.

I called the LGBT resource center near where I live and talked with a man there that I met before and he suggested I call the bus company tomorrow morning and explain to them in detail what went on. If they are not willing to do anything he will meet me down at the bus station headquarters and speak to them personally. This station that it occured at usually has security there, there was none today.

That's terrible what happened, whether they were aiming it at you or near you or just happened to toss it over without even looking to see if anyone was below. I'm glad you are okay even if a bit shaken by the ordeal.

I also hope this was not a targeted incident and simply some idiot being stupid and as Krisina said, not paying attention where they littered. It just amazes me that there are still people out there with I.Q.'s of onions. And they are procreating on top of it!

I am just glad you are ok and hopefully the bus people will address this promptly.

I would have called the police immediately. The bottle, most likely has finger prints on it regardless of being broken. I am so sorry tha you experienced this. Train stations have video tape security. Perhapss this person is on the tape.

Love.

I agree with Bette. The world keeps procreating more idiots everyday. Mother Nature used to take care of and remove them as unfit, but not anymore. You could have been badly hurt and thats nothing to joke about. We even have more and more agitators on TV spewing hatred and demogogery and completely ignoring the truth. Please be careful. We don't want you hurt.

I called the bus company this morning and talked with Security. He stated that the reason there was no security there anymore is due to budget cuts. All he could do was have a patrol security officer go out there today and investigate. Looks like if this should ever happen again I will either have to call the police or call security and hope they will come at a reasonable time. My other option is to flee the scene. I am doing better today, less shaky. I have noticed myself being more aware of my surrondings and very cautious of people around me, especially on the bus and transit centers where I have to wait to transfer to another bus.

Hugs,

Susan

I am happy to hear you are doing better today. 6.gif Hopefully this was the LAST time this crap happens to you, Susan. But you have some very sound advice that probably ALL of us, natal people included (especially natal women), would do well to consider:

Sorry you had to suffer this attack.. I will never forget a soda being thrown from a car at me as I was biking. What a sticky mess. As well as shock about my fellow "humans". It helps to keep your eyes open and be alert but don't get paranoid. It is too often our manner which brings on difficulties but wakes do exist. Best to you, Charlie

Sorry that happened, are you sure they were throwing it at you. The way you described what happened it sounds like they might of just droped it without intending to hit you with it. I mean you said you heard them joking around and laughing, but you didn't say they were saying anything directed towards you. I would just let it go and if it happens again be more aware of what they're talking about. I'm not trying to make light of the situation; just that it's more than possible by the way that you describe what happened that no harm was intended.

      Gender Dysphoria can be overcome, but there are going to moments you do not believe that.  A good gender therapist can help you find the escape route from the "inescapable hell" you talk about here.  You escape the hell by coming out to people, including therapists and starting to live your authentic life.  It sounds like one hell is now partially behind you with your father out of the picture.  Gender Dysphoria does go away as you start to live as yourself and see yourself in the mirror growing more and more like someone you can at last see and love.

      I think talking to someone about it really helps and the ease with your body will come as you let people in that are safe. Being Gender dysphoric is no walk in the park but my personal experience is that the dysphoria subsided as I settled into who I was. I think you will find the same relief along the way as others have. Rachel

      Hello Alice,   Welcome to TransPulse.  Thank you for sharing your story with us.   Although you say you're opposed to seeing a gender therapist, that is something you really should do. He or she could help you get out of this depression you're in and set you on a path toward finding a solution to your trans issues.    MaryEllen

      I am currently reading The Brothers Karamazov. Written by the legendary Russian author Dostoievsky, it tells the story of a despicable man who spent his entire existence indulging in sex and debauchery while manipulating others (especially his wives) and the murder committed by one of four sons (one of them is an illegitimated son). It's probably one of the most mesmerizing novels I've ever read in my life. I have already been fascinated by Dostoievsky's works (Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Demons) but The Brothers Karamazov shows the Russian author at the peak of his talent. I can't wait to continue this long story.    I also finished recently Novel With Cocaine another Russian book written by a mysterious whose identity has been hidden for many, many years (he used the name M. Aguéev when he wrote his book but his real name is in fact Mark Levi). This masterpiece depicts wonderfully the downright spiral of a young teenager in cocaine after his failed relationship with a woman he was insanely in love with. It's extremely gloomy and deprived from any glimpse of hope as ephemeral as it is, and it's written in a disillusioned style that makes the novel strangely fascinating. Vadim, the main character of this book, is someone quite detestable.

      Hi everyone,    Since I am new there (I just created an account this night), I thought it'd be wise of me to create a thread in order to introduce myself and to talk about my wonderful, idyllic existence. First of all I wanted to clarify one thing : I am not a native speaker. Therefore I apologize in advance if my writing style might be a little confusing for those who are going to read me. However I will try to be as understandable as possible. My current nickname is Nihil but the name's Alice. Feel free to call me whatever you want. I am a young transgender woman from France who is still in her twenties and, surprise, is struggling with a dysfunctional mental health due to her depression and her gender identity issues.    During my childhood I have always felt something was wrong with me. Being born in a family that was the total opposite of who I was deep down I've been aware at an early age about the excruciating gap between my mind and this body that was supposed to be me. I didn't relate with the gender that I've been assigned to me at my birth. I didn't understand concepts such as manliness my father was so proud to exhibit. My father was the absolute archetype of the douchebag whose hatred towards women was beyond all rationality. He thought women were mere tools destined to serve him and my mother was so submissive with him. I thoroughly hated my father, being ashamed of being of the same blood as his. Of course, coming out of the closet with a father as violent as ruthless would have undoubtedly killed me. At school I wee extremely introverted. I didn't like being around people since I thought me and the rest of my allegedly comrades weren't really on the same wavelength. I only felt good and relieved when I were freed to be all alone in my inner world. Lost deep down the inner depths of my inner world I could be enhanced with a sense of absolute freedom I loved from the bottom of my heart. I was free to create everything in my mind. Each fragment of my imagination could give birth to a myriad of otherworldly stories that felt astonishingly more real than this reality I feel so estranged to. I spent more in my existence extending my imagination than to be immersed in the outside world. It's still the case nowadays. Reality has always been something both odd and ominous. Everything feels so noisy and incomprehensible to me out there. Going through puberty during my lonely adolescence was one of the most nightmarish experiences in my entire life. I felt my body being disfigured by testosterone (how I loath this world) as if I were being torn apart by a frightening curse. Powerlessness was seething through my entire being, and I didn't know what I supposed to be in order to put an end to this abomination. 

      I've always hated my body or my genes. Not only because I was born from the semen of someone I despise vehemently, but also because my body is the absolute opposite of who I am deep inside. When your bod and your mind are in total contradiction, feeling bliss or happiness in those circumstances become something impossible like a mere chimera. I tried to deny for so many, many years to deny my true nature. Alas, denying the fact that you're a trans is delusional despite those who think that transition is delusional. That's quite the reserve. To me, denying being trans means being condemned to a slow death. I fell into depression and my suicidal tendencies become rapidly unbearable. I've reached a point in my existence I spent each fragment of my life wandering through a state of horrendous depersonalization where I've felt like a broken doll torn to pieces, a little pile of rotten flesh burnt to ashes as if I didn't even exist. I prayed for my death, wishing to be free from this nightmare that seemed to be everlasting. Watching my reflection in front of a mirror was something I couldn't tolerate. Who was this person supposed to be? It couldn't be possible. I didn't understand how I could be this man. My reflection showed me the reflection of a person who was estranged to me.    After several years of abuse that left me broken, my father disappeared after he betrayed me and my mother. Since there my depression worsened dramatically. My depression is so violent that even the thought of going to a gender therapist in order to begin a transition seems to me impossible. But I know I can't go on like this. I can't imagine something more horrible than being forced to live a life that is not your. It's horrendously depressing as if you were trapped in a downright spiral of self-loathing and absolute solitude.    Thanks for reading me.
