Feeling freaked after receiving anonymous roses



June 20, 2019 - 10:05 AM

Dear Carolyn: I am married and have a 2-year-old son. Last week, someone sent me two dozen roses with a note that said they wanted to make me smile, because I make them smile. It was signed with a first name only (common, think John or Tom). The flower shop told me they will not release information about the person without a police report, and local police laughed at me and told me I should be happy someone is sending me flowers. 

I am very freaked out that someone knows my full name and address. This information is easy to get online with a simple search, but the fact that someone is using it to send roses to my house really scares me. I know the roses themselves are not threatening, but to me, the action is. I am having trouble sleeping at night. 

What can I do? My husband knows I’m freaked out, but I think in the back of his head he is also wondering if I am hiding something from him, and he’s not being as supportive as I want him to be. — Very Freaked Out
