Back on track for a better life
Organized by: Katherine Stein
At four years old, I was raped, hit, and verbally abused for two years and honestly, I didn't know another life. I was then mentally abused from ages eight to thirteen. Since my mom began a new business, we've had to switch our insurances to the free one, and not a single company would accept us; making therapy difficult. Our claim for a discounted therapist was denied, and we're still paying off the sessions from last year. I do have a job, but I have so much trouble motivating myself to do anything, whether it be studying, or even getting out of bed in the morning. I don't really see a point in life at this moment, and I hate asking for help. Apart from the PTSD, I also have self harming behavior and suicidal ideation. I am trying to get better, but it can be very difficult sometimes, no matter how hard I try. I suffer from panic attacks and don't feel safe from the PTSD. I would pay for a service dog myself except that I can't get a job because of my age, my mom started her own business, and my dad passed away from cancer this year, not leaving me anything. If you read the end of this, thank you so much for reading it. Have a great day!!
