Diana's Desperate

My name is Diana.  I am  single, no kids.  I am currently desperate for some help.  

I have not had any devestation happen to me recently, yet here I am.  How much of my life do I divulge?  None of it has been easy; being raised in part, by a pedophile, shaded my childhood in grey, from the start.  Where there should have been colour, there was only grey.  I grew up keeping much to myself, because, who would want to know?

I struggled through nursing school, leaning on family and friends for strength. After graduation, I eventually ended up working in the psychiatric as well as the corrections feilds.  I spent approx. 14 yrs in these areas, working with some of the most violent offenders in Ontario.  While I managed to avoid physical harm, many of my friends/ colleagues did not.  Whether these incidents were witnessed or not, each began to take it's toll on my mind.

Anxiety has always been a part of my life, 3 yrs ago, I started having panic attacks.  The nightmares started about a year ago.  In this time, my memory, concentration, and overall cognitive state has been in decline.  While I do see Drs, and take the prescribed medication, I have not been able to function well enough to support myself financially.  I receive a pension $1000/mo.  I am in the process of starting an errand running business, which will hopefully help in the near future.

I am embarrassed to have to ask for help, but my bills are so behind that my utilities are in the process of being shut down.  I am reaching out out of desperation at this point, to any friends out there in a position to help.  until i can get back on my feet again.  This money will 100% go towards utility bills, and I would be eternally grateful for any help you can give.

Thank you
