Kimberly's Photo


Hello. My name is Kimberly P. and I am a disabled veteran with Military Sexual Trauma and Ptsd which occurred following being raped in the military. After the sexual assault at the hands of someone who I had grown to trust, I am also having to contend with bipolar disorder. As a female veteran, I have access to some wonderful resources but I am left struggling with the day to day necessities that so many take for granted. I am using a wheelchair for the past few months following another military injury that occurred during my tenure in the service in 1990 when I was 20 Years old. My left and right knees both have degenerative problems that occurred after falling while in the Coast Guard. For many years I was able to avoid excessive medical costs but now I find myself in the position where I desperately need a few additions to my apartment to be able to shower and exit and enter my apartment in the wheelchair. I am also struggling with day to day life costs such as grocery and rent. I am unable to work and things have been this way since 2009 when I started receiving a small Disability income. After leading an athletic life in my youth and teen years, I am now bound to living day to day not knowing what tomorrow will bring. My ptsd from the military sexual trauma leaves me with daily nightmares and flashbacks that no-one should have to endure. If you are looking to help someone in need that has served her country honorably look no further. I am also looking for monies to be able to buy a computer system with good memory and ram. Something future proof that I can finish my bachelor's degree with and also work on my creative endeavors with. I am hoping that any of this may makes you interested enough in my situation to help me. I am happy to have shared an abbreviated version of my life story with you. Thank you so much. Kimberly
