PTSD Medical and Sexual Trauma Recovery

I am a PTSD survivor of sexual assault and medical trauma.  I am very very lucky in having excellent medical care, but am still struggling with rent, food, transit, and paying for the medical care while in Intensive Outpatient treatment. 


Since my initial childhood trauma occurred in a hospital, I was unable to tolerate inpatient treatment due to the severity of flashbacks and panic attacks.  I am so grateful to the medical community here in Chicago for adjusting the Intensive Outpatient program to fit my unique needs, but I still need help.

Anything you can donate will go towards my recovery and paying the people who are helping me get healthy.  As I heal, I am working towards building a platform for my PTSD story online, so that I might help other survivors of sexual trauma find community and support on their own path of healing.

Thank you for your time.

Please share anywhere you think appropriate.  I need help, and in 29 years, it's the first time I've really reached out to the community in this way and been honest about my circumstances.

Much love,

Erin
