Abuse During Sleep: Can You Tell us How You Knew?
We have now had numbers of our readers tell us that they were abused while they were sleeping. In some cases it was sexual abuse. In others the victim awoke to being physically assaulted or verbally attacked. These reports are frequent enough that I wanted to put this subject right out here where we can all see it, and I ask our readers who have experience with this kind of thing to tell us what you know and/or experienced.
Open discussion of this aspect of abuse may very well help other victims who are being abused in their sleep but who doubt their perceptions about it. In particular, I am curious about what little clues you might have seen that made you suspicious, but you still weren’t certain? Were you taking medications that made you groggy and thus more vulnerable?
Let us all know if you can. And many, many thanks for doing so.
