Becca Webster ~ MEDICAL - Card #1

The nurse comes with another woman and introduces you to her, Jennifer, and tells you that she is a sexual assault advocate. Jennifer explains that she is there for you through the whole process, that she can stay or go. You don’t know her and would not feel comfortable with her there during the exam, you ask her to stay in the waiting room in case you need her. Sasha stays with you.

An officer comes in and asks more questions and seems understanding when you can’t remember things. He tells you that is normal for people who experience trauma.

After he leaves the room the nurse begins the exam. She takes samples and swabs and it’s very uncomfortable. The nurse keeps asking you if you are ok and if you want to proceed. 4 hours later the exam is complete, and you are exhausted. You feel like you are going crazy because you still have everything running through your mind and it won’t stop. You want to talk to someone, but Sasha has to work now. You pull out your phone to call your brother when you see Jennifer is still there.
