(New York, NY)
I was a very outgoing person until 2006. I returned to my hometown after 20 years to rebuild. It began almost immediately.
The first incident was when an apparent gay man intentionally touched me for the sole purpose of getting an angry knee-jerk reaction. I verbally confronted him and his attitude was extremely disrespectful and it was as if he was trying to get me to become violent, which he was. After I walked away I thought it was over but it was only the beginning.
Since then there has been many incidents of "Street Theatre", weird noises, my vehicle has been broken into and vandalized. Some who I thought were my friends no longer are, some of my family members no longer interact with me, and I no longer am able to make friends and be the outgoing person that I used to be.
This behavior increases especially around the holidays and holiday weekends. There was an incident where I did actually have a physical altercation with a perp and after he woke up he tried to get me in trouble. I was able to lie my way through it but it didn't stop anything in fact it got worse because they realized that I do have a breaking point.
I did enjoy a little victory and it felt sooo good to kick some Gang-Stalking ass but, in the end it didn't help. I believe that it is the Government that is behind it all with the help of the local police and other local agencies.
