Ugh I want a dog so bad. I know we’re not getting one for Christmas, but I hope so badly that one day we’ll get one. I swear if we ever get one I will cry tears of joy for probably an hour or something because animals make me really emotional.
And I know that it will eventually die, and I’ll be pretty damn depressed for a while. I mean, I lose it when animals die on tv. And to have my own critter that I loved die would be beyond god-awful, the years of love and joy and happiness will be so worth it.
I think this is really important to remember. EVERYONE needs to know that they have these options, but I can also understand how someone might prefer to not press charges or even go to the hospital because they just want to forget it ever happened. What’s important is that someone understands that they don’t NEED to go to the hospital or they don’t NEED to go to the police or they don’t NEED to just go home.
I didn’t even know about evidence being able to be collected up to 5 days after. Can someone get a source for this?
I don’t have a source, but after my assault I was told that exact information.
