I probably won’t be able to truly convey just how much I hate having to make this plea, or just how much we need your help.
My husband & I both really struggle with our health these days, both physically & mentally. We never envisaged being in this position, but finding ourselves both having disabilities now, especially after living such active hard working lives, has truly beaten us down.
Now we’re at a point where my PTSD is only getting worse living in mainstream society. You see my Chronic Complex PTSD came from all of the hideous things we’ve had happen to us over the span of both our lives. It’s now got to the point where I can not leave the house or even go outside if there are people out there.
We were both brought up on the land & having lost all of that also really scarred us. We’re fighters but after a lifetime of being hurt by other people & now seeing our children feel those same pressures, I just don’t know what more I could take & my poor husband has to look after me, our children & his father, all whilst being in pain himself.
We can’t survive like this much longer, we desperately need just a small patch of woodland to escape to. Somewhere to escape from all people, so I can be outdoors again where my husband & I were born to be, our children can forget their worries & where we can teach them about nature, conservation, the environment & survival.
We need, & it is a primal physicalogical & psychological need to be back on the land. To be able to be totally off grid & to use our farming, forestry & conservationional experience to raise our family our way & start healing some of these multitude of open wounds we all have. To be able to give our kids what they need & deserve, & to be our true selves freely again, because we’ve been repeatedly knocked down our entire lives.
If you can help in any way, please, please, please get in contact with me as soon as you possibly can.
