I am grappling with the trauma of ongoing sexual abuse for 5 years from my step Grandfather when I was a child. These problems have been ongoing since I was 9 years of age and have affected my ability to cope. Throughout the last year after coming forward to my family about the sexual abuse it has split my family apart, my family and I were push out and ignored.
I suffer from ongoing depression, low self-esteem, self-destructive behaviors, insomnia and anxiety, the impact of these conditions on me are severe, with having regular panic attacks and suicidal intent. I have been undertaking therapy sessions with a whole rang of professionals on a weekly basis to enable me to overcome my problems and to achieve effective functioning.
I have done all I can to deal with the pressures and face the problem head on. To completely overcome my issues I want to trek around South America for 4 months with a number of goals in place such as: Learn Spanish, climbe Machu Picchu, Argentina Glacier, attend a World Cup game in Brazil and cleanse myself so I can move forward and become the best I ever can be.
