Camper/van fund to heal from trauma

Camper/van fund to heal from trauma

From Shassy G.

First off, thank you for looking. I am fundraising for a camper/van. To purchase the initial vehicle, and get it equipped to be able to live out of it if needed. This is not for continuing support, I am on disability.

I’ll try to make this short, but no guarantees.. lol…I am a writer.  

Childhood trauma, and adult trauma have left me with permanent damage.  I lost my virginity to rape when I was 17, had another stalking, home invasion, and rape in my 30’s, and I ignored myself, for lack of a better word, to survive and raise my kids.  After my kids left home, things started to fall apart.  I had gone to college, (120 credit hours), decided what I wanted to be when I grew up…so I changed my major and entered into the nursing industry.  I worked in that field about 7 years before I had my first psychiatric hospitalization.  To this date I have had 5 funny farm visits. (I sometimes use humor to cope.). I say to this date, because I still struggle with morbid thoughts, severe symptoms of CPTSD, PTSD, MDD, BPD, and autoimmune disease caused directly from the trauma.  

I want to say that I’m a survivor.  Because, well, I’m here. But finding the will to survive, and WANT to survive is hard.  This leads me to this fundraiser for my camper/van.  I am at the most peace, when I am in nature and away from cities and towns.  I feel like this would help me try to heal my mind, body, and soul.  Or at least help.  It’s never going to be completely healed. But I would like to not want to die some days.  

Thank you for reading this far, if you have. If there are ANY questions, please reach out and I will do my best to answer them.
