Hello, my name is Amey from Australia. This has taken me two weeks to have the courage to ask for help, I find it so hard to ask anyone for help.
I am a Single 44 year old female and was not born with the opportunity to be a mum and can not fall pregnant. I love kids and was born to be a mother so I have rescued dogs all my life and my current rescue dog is my companion and best friend.
I am an only child and don’t have any contact with my parents, they gave me a life of neglect, physical and mental trauma with invisible scars that still affect my ability to function and feel safe to this day.
I have Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Conversion Disorder which is my bodies response to the endless trauma I have had all my life – it affects me without any warning – I can become completely paralysed on my life side mimicking a stroke, loose all strength in my muscles and loose the ability to speak. I would not wish this upon anyone.
I am On a Disability Pension, I receive funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme in Australia where I receive therapy with a Clinical Trauma Psychologist, a Mental Health Occupational Therapist, a Psychosocial Recovery Coach and Carers to help me with my day to day life.
I don’t have many friends as I have trust/abandonment issues. My psychologist says I am a very empathetic person so I get taken advantage of very easily so I feel it’s safer for me to stick to myself. I also have a long list of physical health issues and disabilities.
I didn’t realise I had been paying for Total and Permanent Disability Insurance until my my Psychiatrist asked me to bring in my Annual Superannuation Statement to an appointment with him. We discovered I have been paying TPD Insurance for 23 years so my Psychiatrist, Psychologist and Doctor all supported that I could never work again and found me a good lawyer with a no win no fee arrangement.
The claim has been ongoing for 13 months now and typically most claims are paid in 6 months. My Lawyer has advised me that my super fund I pay my TPD insurance too have breached 17 of their regulations with my Claim and my lawyer will be suing them for damages/losses/trauma I have endured due to their negligence once my TPD Claim has been paid.
I have been living off my superannuation funds for the past 8 years and have now depleted all available funds that have kept me afloat until now.
I am unable to get a loan for the amount of money I require as I am on a low income Dr disability pension. I am so close to loosing my home I have rented for the past 7 years, can not pay for the medical specialists I need to see or any of my basic living expenses and bills merely to survive.
My TPD Claim is expected to be paid in 3 months, until then I have 25% of the money I need to keep me afloat from my disability pension. I don’t want your pity, I want you to know I’m a fighter and I never give up though life has been a constant war for me and I’ve climbed millions of mountains to fight for my survival.
I have attached a letter from my Lawyer and my Clinical Trauma Psychologist to confirm my need for immediate financial help is bonafide. When my Claim is approved, as I am an extremely grateful person despite my suffering and I am an extremely empathetic individual. I feel a great sense of purpose in helping others truly in need whenever I can, so you can be assured your donation of help – I will pay it forward to others in need as I am right now.
If you have read this far, I appreciate your time and consideration as to wether you would like to help me. I have bared my soul and shared my story with you in as brief yet informed way as I possibly could.
This has been so difficult for me to do, though I have at least conquered my fear and put myself out there seeking the help I truly need to survive the next 3 months and for you to decide what you will do next.
I am truly grateful for any donation you may have the capacity to give. My goal/need is large and I know it is a very tall ask and order to be able to achieve this. So you are clear, it is 10,000 to cover me for the next 3 months until my Claim is paid.

With Kindness, I thank you. Amey 🙏🏻
