Trauma Therapy

Between the end of May and start of June of 2018 I was sexually assaulted by the same person twice in six days.

I have fortunately found a superb trauma therapist, sadly to wait for the NHS to pull their finger out would both take time and a wait my mental health can not afford, so I had been blessed that my parents paid for a couple of initial sessions but that has now ceased.

So if you are able to help it would be gratefully appreciated towards me reclaiming my mental wealth.

The long term impact on not only my life but that of my family by this perpetrator I can't put into polite words, but to say my waking as well as sleeping moments are spent consumed with not only all he did but all he has stolen is putting it lightly,  daily my mental health is a battle as flashbacks, nightmares, panic attacks, dissociation (all classic symptoms of cPTSD) are prevalent on a daily basis.  The fear is real when it paralyses me leaving me unable to parent Mima as I would prefer to.

Thanks in advanced.  

In addition money from this is also being used to cover the additional burden of not feeling safe using hospitals in Leeds for treatment when Self Injury occurs due to the disassociation element of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which has left me no option but to attend hospital in Harrogate which per cab journey is £30.  Whilst I have to date (12/12) Self Injured 7x now, their have been complications from the injuries which have required further visits.

Hence whilst it may appear that a) the amount raised appears a lot, it has rapidly been utilised and b) in addition the total amount wont come close to the actual full cost of all the animal who so brutally vitally abused and violated me has cost me in multiple ways.

To those whom have already donated words can't express my gratitude to you.
