Healing from Amnesia

My name is Bernd and I was abducted while I was a child.
The criminals tortured, poisoned and crippled me. 
So I became a traumatized child with retrograde amnesia who was a source of money for the abductors. 
I didn't know my memory was so trapped. They blackmailed my mother, grandmother, and some of my great-grandparents.
The criminals told them and me extensive lies to prevent family reunification and allow payments to continue. 
I thought the abductors are my family.
They covered me with a false identity with a fake birthcertificate and presented me as their own child.
The kidnappers embezzled my mail and birthday and Christmas presents when I was a Child so did not realize a different family exists.
The criminals did a great job. 
I carried away a post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries.
I have retrograde amnesia and I can't remember a lot of details. 
I am unable to work and cannot concentrate on anything for long.
I have no savings and no health insurance. 
I need speech therapy and a family lawyer to work with law enforcement and the court.
I am planning hypnotic regression therapy to regain a lot more of my memory and to heal.
This therapy is very important to me. 
Unfortunately, this is expensive and I have neither savings nor health insurance. 
I don't have a car either.  
Due to the above circumstances, I have to ask for money as I need it urgently!

Best regards
