Yes, this would be a restraining order. When you state that you are in fear of your safety, then you have grounds. You need to show an imminent risk of injury or harm. You state that you have that. That means you can get a restraining order. Texting, emails and the like, if they show threatening behaviour or are suspicious and odd are evidence of stalking and can support your claim.
Oregon has a pretty good on line form, plus instructions, on how to get a stalking order. Let me see if I can find it.

You need to read this material and fill out the forms. I always advise bringing the forms to the court clerk to be sure you have filled them out properly and you get the papers served properly.
You can also use an attorney, who can fill out the forms for you.

I have read much info on stalking orders in Oregon and the only issue is there is nothing that is considered threatening behavior. The fact that despite asking for no contact and her continuing to the point of harassment, I consider very odd and extremely obsessive, which is extremely frightening to me. Also there is the post of me on internet, which I stated I have no proof unless I ask for ISP address. Is the possibility that if I can get a temporary stalking order, but can subpoena for ISP address in the discovery process to build my case of stalking?
The subpoena would have to be issued by the court, which you can do, but it is a process. Based on what you are saying, you need more for a stalking order. If you feel that you are at imminent risk of harm, then use the materials I sent you to obtain a restraining order. You will have to say that you fear for you life and safety. That usually will do it.
Please write back to me if you need more.

Your best bet is to swear out the affidavit on the RO application stating what is happening and that you fear for your life and safety. Your testimony at the hearing will be your best evidence. If you feel stronger going in with the subpoenaed records, then tell the court clerk you want to do a subpoena when you go to the court to file.
