Thank you both for the responses. I am appreciative of them.

B: You are very correct in your assessment about how these people operate. Thank you for your well wishes. I hope you find your own peace soon as well.

Peter: Having thought further about the incident and your response, I think that in both of our cases there was a major betrayal of trust. You trusted a medical professional to help you as his job implies he should; I trusted a friend to treat me as a friend should. Ordinarily they are people we should have been able to trust, but these predators twist everything to accomplish their end goal.

Be well,
"Don't be ashamed to need help. Like a soldier storming a wall, you have a mission to accomplish. And if you've been wounded and you need a comrade to pull you up? So what?" Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, Book 7:7
