A warchild's Art

Hi everyone reading this. 

I was born in a town called Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We had a nice life there until the war broke out and we had to fight for our lives. 

After some things that I have seen, that I wouldn't wish upon anybody, me and my family got out four years into the war. I won't go into details how we got out put it still brings me nightmares. 

We came to Sweden and I excelled in school ... everything was pretty easy to me as I had seen a perspective of the real "hard" so to say so homework, essays and tests were usually really simple for me. I skipped 1,2,3 grade cause I was hiding from grenades and snipers in a basement but in Sweden I started in 4th grade and still managed to be the student of the year every year in my school. I always received a book and they would thank me. 

I have memories from the war and I've gone to CBT-therapy and the most important think for me is to have an outlet. My outlet is art... I write a lot and most importantly I draw. I draw and then I scan my drawings and put them on instagram. This helps me stay focused and all the negativity flows away with every drawing that I make. 

It's not easy to draw... I personally have to have a scanner and pencils ... right now I just hunch over the paper and draw. Also my art is free for all on my instagram page and I do have that you can write me and order but there are a few of those coming in so I almost called it quits on my dreams but then a friend of mine told me about this page. This is sort of a "Hail Mary".

So it says explain what the funds will be used for... well ... mostly to keep me sane and on track. My ptsd has caused me to suffer from OCD as well as I started treating it too late. So I am my own worst critic on every drawing.
So except me staying in check and sane I would use the fonds for papers, pencils and I'd love to buy one of those stances so I don't have to hunch over when I draw. It really kills my back.

I hope a lot of people will benefit from this... every art lover and everyone who has a tough time says they feel better after visiting my site... and that is my goal to have a free drawing insta page that everyone can visit and enjoy and rest their mind a bit.

For me like I mentioned the support would keep me in line with my PTSD and OCD and I can't quite tell you how grateful I would be if I got some help.

They say to pursue your dreams but it's hard sometimes...

Oh and how soon I need the funds ... well I'm not really expecting this to work but I'd need them soon... like soon soon to keep everything going.

I know that people have a lot more serious issues and I feel silly about asking for help regarding this... but this helps me stay sane... otherwise I really wouldn't be here doing this.

Peace and much love,
