Hi my name is Clare and I have PTSD.
I have PTSD as a result of a savage attack outside my home that nearly cost me my life. The doctors were actually shocked and amazed that I managed to survive without any long term physical injuries. I was hit so hard in the back of my head that I was given strong pain relief at the time so that I wasn’t “suffering” and I was preparing to call my loved ones to say my goodbyes. Luckily for me I was rewarded with my life and able to continue living without any major physical injuries.
Unfortunately the mental and emotional injury I sustained has been substantial. In order to be able to pay bills and live day to day I had to use credit cards to survive. Due to my mental health I missed days of work and in the end was struggling so bad I had to take a 12 month sabbatical. I managed to keep my credit card payments up and never missed a repayment but it has meant that between my medical expenses to see a psychiatrist and paying for groceries and other every day life expenses I am still in debt. I am in a great position in my life to move forward and put this horrible incident behind me but the constant reminder of it when I see the debt I owe is always hanging over my head.
I have returned to the workplace in a new job that is part time as I am mentally not well enough to work full time hours. This has added to my strain financially but I have managed to follow a strict budget to ensure that no more debt is added to my credit cards and all bases are covered.
I would really appreciate any assistance to pay off my credit card debt so that my fortnightly psychiatrist appointments at $395 a session aren’t a big hit to my weekly pay. I want to be saving for my future not paying for my past. A past that was created by a man, a stranger. I am not willing to give up my psychiatry support and am already stretched living pay to pay that there is no where else for me to cut back or to turn to have this paid off sooner in order completely move forward and take my healing to the next level.
Please if you have it in your heart to help me out I would appreciate it more than you can possibly know.
Oceans of love and thanks
