I haven't ever really openly talked about my mental health issues but after this incident and the sexual, physical and emotional abuse I’ve endured over the past few years I am finally ready to say that I’ve had enough.
I’ve had enough of people feeling me up at gigs, breaking my ribs when I reject their advances and partner’s thinking they’re entitled to sex even when I’ve said “no”. I’ve had enough of all sorts of physical abuse, being held down and spat on, being locked in my room, being screamed at and threatened, I’m sick of being pressured to drink and take drugs, having my drinks spiked and having my things stolen.
I have major depression, anxiety and PTSD, I work so hard to stay on top of my mental health. I can only work minimal hours a week due to my mental health issues. There are some days where I’m too fearful to leave the house. I see a psychologist, go to al anon meetings, take an array of medications and I see both western and eastern medical specialists. Even with all this help it’s an incredibly slow process.
I plan meticulously to be able to afford the things I love and make me happy, the things that keep me going. Mostly playing roller derby and keeping my dogs healthy.
The police can’t do anything more and I now can’t afford dog food, vet bills or to play roller derby for the next few months, I may also struggle to pay rent or buy food for myself.
I understand the pain of someone telling you they don’t want to be with you, but this behaviour is unacceptable. Especially because now it has a large impact on my pets, who would take their pain out on these delights!?
If you want to help Monty, Waylon and me rebuild our lives we’d appreciate anything you can give!
