Now that we have established that drug rape is a serious problem in our community, what can we do now to raise awareness for future prevention?

HI. My name is Courtney. Recently my girlfriends and I had a girls night out. On Feb. 2, 2008 someone decided to put something in my drink. Luckily my husband came to pick up my friend and I. Waking up Sunday morning with no recolection was the scariest feeling in the world. My husband Kevin filled me in on the details of the night before. I was out of control. I was falling all over the place, and could not stand up on my own. Monday morning we went to the police station to file a report. The police officer I met with thought maybe I just had a "bug". She wanted for me to have blood work done before she filed a criminal report. I went to Next Care to get blood work, after waiting for an hour they told me that they did not have the tools for that kind of testing. My next stop was Mediac. When I called them they said we do drug testing come on in. I went in, and then they changed their minds, and said they were not set up to do that kind of testing. The next morning I called my primary care doctor, where they told me they would not have enough time to do the tests. With out the blood work, I had no evidence to bring to the police, therefore, no police report.
My biggest problem with this whole situation is the what if's. What if I was raped...or murdered, or both. I want to make sure the what if's do not happen to someone else. If one person hears my story, and are more aware of what can happen to them when they go out, I will feel better. Hopefully this blog will inspire you to blog about your experiences, and together we can change the way this kind of horrible situation is handled. If there is anything that I can personally do to help, I will. Thank you for reading my story, and please share yours.
