This isn't my story to tell, and requires anonymity, so everything will be pretty vague. I don't even know if I should post this here because I feel like it's too obvious it's me, if anyone does a search for this situation. Oh well. A little backstory: A friend of mine has terrible luck. I recently found out that she's been having a rough time medically, and has been a victim of rape multiple times, one very recently. She pressed charges and put the scum in jail. His roommates then began harassing her. It all came to a head yesterday, when one of them got her alone and punched her in the face. She got away, and my friends and I got really worried, so I decided I should start walking places with her, even though she refused to get me involved. She went somewhere very early this morning and I surprised her and escorted her. I went back to bed. I woke up a couple hours later to a missed phone call, a missed text message, and an email saying that on her way back, these guys had found her and raped her. So here I am, sitting in my room, weeping because the one time she DID need my help, I was literally asleep on the job. Tell me what I can do to (selfishly) assuage my own guilt and also what can I do to a) make her feel better and b) explain what happened to press charges. She's keeping pretty quiet.
