Firstly let me please introduce myself and tell you a little about me.
My name is Matthew Stephenson. I am 36 years old living in Llandudno, North Wales. I am former British soldier currently in a Mental Health care ward in Bangor Hospital, North Wales after my failed eight suicide attempt. I suffer with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and severe depression and have done for some years now. I battle every day to try and avoid me taking my own life which would be the easy choice for me however I have four young sons therefore I need to continue my life for them no matter how much pain I suffer with.
I have not come on this site to necessarily beg for money donations but for opportunities to help me develop myself again although financial assistance would be very welcome at this time to try help me build again. With regards to financial assistance if any monies was donated it would firstly go to my outstanding debts then when I move into a property of my own (rented) as I currently live in a mental health supported living home (when not in hospital) to aid me with purchasing furniture so I can have my children stay over during holidays and when I get time with them. Also I hope to be able to purchase a car again at sometime to aid me in seeing my children as they live over 200 miles from the location I live after the breakdown of my marriage to their mother due to my problems. I currently not taking enough of an active role in their lives as a father which I want to change but with my mental health problems and the financial restraint I have I’m not being the father my children deserve. The ultimate dream would be to live closer to my children.
As I have previously stated I’m not necessarily asking for money more opportunity to develop myself. The reason I ask this is is I served 14 years in the British Army serving tours of Iraq (2003) and Afghanistan (2006 & 2008) where some of my issues were developed. Upon my sacrifice of departing the army for the sake of my family I become a heavy goods truck driver after failing to obtain work as a wind turbine service technician and continue this doing many various jobs for 5 years however it had a detrimental effect on my mental health so I seek a new opportunity to be able to work in a new field and develop myself again so I can support myself, support my children and find happiness and satisfaction in life again.
