What is it like to get blackmailed?You are being bullied but THEY also want your money. Your deepest most private secrets are about to be disclosed. You are being taken on an emotional roller coaster and you feel your good name is on the line.
Don't let it happen, short circuit their bad intent and share frequently with others no matter how personal it is. Behave yourself amongst others.
disclaimer...... I have yet to be in this position
It's hell. It can't be explained in words. I woke up many times in the midnight with so much tension in muscles, sweat, temperature in body.
I didn't feel like eating, talking, living. I didn't care of one's health, hygiene, family or anything.
Those were the worst moments of life when I thought my life was over. I thought of ending life. Those were moments when I said,"Why me? Why was I born?" etc.
I entered the storm. I struggled. I left storm. It didn't kill me, but mad me stronger.
But getting out of the situation miraculously is like being born again.
Now I would say, "I am not what I was."
