About this cause:
I am a victim of a violent crime/rape with Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Depression and 2 teen boys that are my whole world. Since I was stabbed and had my throat slit and raped in 2009 I have been in and out of treatments. Broke down and had to send my kids to live with their Grandparents when I split up with their father because I was homeless. And finally am receiving treatment at Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands (great place) along with my regular mental health care. But all that happened too late because I suffer from severe PTSD and don't leave the house in fear I'll get attacked again. My bipolar makes it worse. I pay for half my medicine but my boyfriend buys it because I can't work long periods of time anymore. I panic about strangers or just want to come home so bad I have fits. I can't focus on tasks very well anymore. Thank Bipolar for that one. I have applied for Medicaid, Disability, Food stamps ... everything and have been denied. I have $2,459.00 and another $12,823.73 in outstanding medical bills. My monthly fee is average of $300.00 plus $150.00 in meds alone. I just want to be able to keep up my care and take care of my children that are now back in my life. Anything over what I need to survive I will donate to STSM or to a Bipolar research foundation. I figure if people are willing to share with me then I should pass it on! I keep trying to work but it's not working out but I'll never give up trying. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and if you choose to donate thank you very much. It will be beyond appreciated and always remembered. Be Brave. I am a survivor. I am not alone.
