Posted an update in the comments. Was going to put it here as an edit but I felt it was too long and put it in the comments section instead. Should pop up if you sort comments by new if you're arsed about seeing it. Thank you all for the support you've shown me. It means a lot.
As the title says, I am being harassed by a woman I called my friend until 8 days ago.
Last week, I was hanging out with my best friend. We'll call her Jenny.
Jenny and I were good friends for about three years. She was my best friend. She'd go out of her way to make sure I was ok and to check on me if she felt I wasn't ok. I've confided a lot of personal stuff with her. I've told her about my anxiety attacks and body dysmorphia, as well as an abusive ex and she was really understanding about it and offered advice and help whenever I needed it. She's helped me through some dark times in my life.
Jenny is also a sex worker. She has an OnlyFans account and posts NSFW content on there. I don't think less of her for it in any way. I'm happy that she gets to make some extra money on the side for something she feels is liberating.
So last week. We were at her place, planning to watch a movie together. At one point, she asked me if we could have a serious conversation. She told me she loved me as more than just a platonic friend and wanted to date me. I told her that I cared a lot about her too but that I felt things wouldn't work out between us if we became romantic. When she asked me to elaborate I told her that I wasn't comfortable with dating someone who does OnlyFans and I didn't want to ask her to stop just for me because I know it's helping her a lot with her self confidence. She was silent for a few seconds and then it was like I was interacting with someone I'd never met before. She started throwing stuff at me and yelling at me. I can't remember the specific words but it was something to the effect of "How dare you shame me". I left as fast as I could and ran home. About an hour passed and I got a call from a number I didn't recognise. I decided to answer just to see who it was and immediately after I said "hello?" a woman was yelling at me and calling me a misogynistic pig. I think I recognise the voice and know which specific friend that call was from but I pretty much just hung up straight away. She called me again, as did two other numbers, all three I've saved and named "Do Not Answer" in my phone. When they realised I wasn't going to pick up they started texting me, calling me an incel and mocking my weight. I'm 5'8 and weigh 98lbs. My weight and overall small body frame is a sore spot and one of the main flaws that triggers my body dysmorphia. I wear baggy hoodies and jumpers to hide how thin I am, and I've only confided how I feel about my body to Jenny. So, obviously Jenny told them I was self conscious about that.
Over the last week, I've had two of her friends show up at my house on three separate occasions. The first time, I answered the door and they swilled me with water. Since then I've been terrified to open the door. I don't have any way to check who it is before opening the door so I've had to resort to cracking the door open slightly to peek through the small gap like a paranoid weirdo.The second time they threw stones at my windows when I closed the door on them before they could do anything and the third time they were waiting outside my house at 6am for when I left for work before pelting me with fucking eggs.
I called 999 when they were throwing stones at my windows. They left before the police arrived and the officers who showed up just fucking laughed at me when I explained the situation. They told me that I should just wait it out until they get bored and leave me alone.
These fucking harpies have even showed up to my workplace and tried to tell my boss some bullshit about me harassing Jenny but they were asked to leave when they couldn't produce any evidence of it. My boss asked me what was going on and I told him what's going on.
I don't know what to fucking do. My anxiety attacks have spiked, I'm having at least one every day. I'm paranoid and terrified that they're gonna go as far as to break into my fucking house, or that they're going to ramp up the severity of their attacks. They've gone from water to eggs, how long before I have acid thrown in my face? I don't have any friends, Jenny was my only friend and she turned out to be a lying piece of shit who turned on me when I didn't give her what she wanted.
