I had an abusive (physical and emotional) mother, my first suicide attempt was at age 11, I tried to overdose on sleeping pills. At 7 years old I was sexually molested and never told anyone, I thought it was normal. I did not know at the time but I was suffering from depression and active suicidal thoughts. I had the fortune of meeting my best friend a brother to me at the age of 8, his family protected me and gave me a safe place to grow I love them so much I like to call them my adoptive family. One day my best friend and my adoptive father were kidnapped and we were not able to pay randsom. they were both killed. I was the oldest in the family, and started looking for their bodies in morgues in nearby cities. By this time I was 22 years old. I found him, in a morgue across the border in Mexico. I went to rescue his body as soon as I found him. The place was being watched and the kidnappers tried to grab me. I was able to escape. I am currently 32 years old and have been on many medications. Even electro convulsive therapy. I have tried to commit suicide, even looked at Switzerland’s assisted suicide, my last suicide attempt was 4 months ago, I hung myself, I awoke unconscious on the floor, the noose was not strong enough, the moment I kicked the chair I felt I was going to finally be at peace. I am happy the noose broke and have a second chance to fight and beat this illness. I continue with therapy and medications, but doctors have recommended dogs for people with severe anxiety postraumátic stress disorder and depression. I am unemployed can’t hold a job down I have tried several times. This money would go toward a specially trained service dog that can legally accompany me anywhere and it could turn things around for me. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
