I am a 19 year old autistic girl with severe CPTSD from multiple rapes, parental addiction problems, and severe neglect and abuse. I have been granted the opportunity of a lifetime to receive EMDR therapy free of charge, the only catch is I will not be able to work while receiving this therapy. It’s very intense and puts you out of sorts for days afterwards, which would make holding a job impossible. I only need around $3,500 to make it through the next few months I have therapy for. I will not be able to do the therapy at all if I do not have the money for my bills outside of it. I have been suffering for years, and I need relief. I have been hospitalized twice in the last month for mental health-related injuries, I don’t think I’ll make it to my 20th birthday without this therapy. Please consider helping me, because this is my absolute last chance to be happy. I have worked since I was 15 year old in very unsafe work conditions just to make ends meet. These conditions caused my mental health to worsen. My earliest memory of sexual abuse was when I was around 9 years old; I was never given a chance. The traumas that haunt me every night were not my fault, yet I have had to live with them day in and day out. Please consider helping me so I can afford to survive through this therapy. I don’t have any family to help me, I’m alone in this. I’m fighting to survive and I’m getting so tired. I am holding out hope that this therapy is enough to fix the brokenness that has plagued me for so long. I have not been able to receive help until now. The gift of the free EMDR therapy is so priceless to me, and it would shatter my heart and soul to have to pass up an opportunity like that just because I can’t afford to stay afloat while going through it. Christmas is coming, and all I want is to be happy again. I want to feel safe in my own body again. My biggest wish in the whole entire world is to be able to sleep without reliving my rapes every time I close my eyes. I wake up sobbing almost every night because I can feel it happening all over again, and EMDR therapy has been proven to heal wounds like mine.Thank you so much for your time and consideration, I am so grateful.
