Hello my name is Charissa Hoffman, I am 28 years old married with 2 beautiful children who are 3 and 7. When I was 14 I was diagnosed with Bulimia along with other multiple psychiatric disorders. Through the years I have been in and out of treatment centers and hospital and have caused irreversable damage to my body. At this point I have been a bulimic for 14 years, my family and husband have done so much to try and help me overcome my battle with this terrible disease but with no luck. I recently lost my job due to my illness and the toll it was taking on my work. Right now due to all the medical bills and me being unable to work, we are in the process of loosing our home which is currently in forclosure. We barely have enough money to pay are utilities which as of right now are in the hundreds of dollars that we owe, we have had our electricity and heat turned off several times and can not even afford to buy our growing children the clothes that they need. Our lives are falling apart, my husband works day and night to try and keep a roof over our head but its just not enough. I love my family so much and it tears me apart to see what my disease is doing to them. Writing this is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do as I am not one to ask for help from others, but at this point it is no longer about me it is about my family. I will soon be going back into treatment to yet again try to beat my 14 year battle with Bulimia and Deppression. All I ask is that if anyone is at all able to help us by donating whatever it is you can afford I would be extremly extremely greatful. If we loose our home our family will be homeless with no where to go. I dont want my husband and children to have to indure the difficulties that we may be facing. With that said I just want to thank all of you who take the time to read this even if you do not have the money to donate. God Bless You!
