I was an artist, and professor who has been living with CPTSD since I was 12 years old from trauma and childhood abuse that had lasted for years. This has been very crippling and highly traumatic. I am in desperate need of a life altering procedure to help alleviate my CPTSD which has stolen so much from me. It has hindered my ability to teach, paint, and live a fulfilling peaceful life. I am asking for $10,000 US dollars in order to have the procedure and cover travel expenses, and eventually get back to painting, teaching and get my life back.
