#MeToo personal memoir
STALKED! By Voices is my soul searing autobiography of how I was – am still am – being stalked and mentally harassed for decades.
In 1976 the word stalker, as we know it today, did not exist. It didn’t become common place in our language until after the horrific murder of TV star, Rebecca Schaeffer. Schaffer was the star of the 1988 sitcom, My Sister Sam. And in 1989, she was shot dead on her own doorstep by Robert John Bardo. According to media reports, at the time of her murder, Bardo, whom Schaffer did not know, had been stalking her for some time.
Before Rebecca’s murder there was no such thing as being STALKED. So, try to imagine that you’re a young twenty-three year old Black woman of no reputation trying to convince your local Police that you’re being stalked, 24/7/365. Everywhere you go. Every second of the day. Needless-to-say, my repeated attempts at getting help fell on deaf ears and ended with my being sent for out-patient psychiatric counseling and dosed, daily, with antipsychotic drugs. After the so-called therapy ended with my forced confession that I had made the whole thing up, I was left to fend for herself against a family of psychic predatory sexual stalkers
For example this excerpt from the book.
Chapter 31 ….. THEY SKINNED ME ALIVE! How can I describe to you what it’s like having your every thought put on public display for the amusement of others? The closest I can come to it, is to say, it’s kind of like having your skin peeled off your body in long painful strips that leaves you feeling totally exposed.
Stalked! By Voices takes the reader from rural 1965 Latham, Alabama to present day Maywood, Illinois and details a decades’ long true crime story of stalking, sexual harassment, and physical abuse. #Timesup
