DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN my drink was spiked at my birthday party five years ago, I never imagined a close friend would be responsible.
It wasn’t until I had a catch-up with a mutual friend recently that I realised who did it. She said she saw him put something in my drink, but assumed I already knew.
This news has shocked me to my core, and I can’t get it off my mind.
I’ve been left traumatised and can’t understand why he would do this to me.
I’m a 31-year-old woman, this so-called friend is 35. We had been friends for seven years.
That night he was acting suspiciously, but to this day I still barely have any memories of what happened.
From the moment I drank my first drink everything became a complete blur.
