Hello my names Jessica and I'm 24 years old.
I have been living with mental health issues for as long as I can remember, this began due to systematic sexual abuse for 8 years in my childhood.
Following said abuse I have developed a condition called "Borderline Personality Disorder". BPD is where a traumatic event in childhood has caused a persons personality to develop in a different way to the average person. BPD is where people are emotionally unstable and are unable to have the 'grey' aspect of emotions, it is purely black or white, black being the feelings of intense depression/suicidal ideation and white being extreme happiness and hypermania; this has caused several issues throughout my life, I have been unable to access the relevant therapy that I need due to long waiting lists in the NHS and not having enough money to pay for Private healthcare. It has come to a point in my life where I am unable to hold down a job due to my illness. I am socially inadequate, I have so much I desire to offer to the world but my mental health holds me back.
Coming up to be 25 years old, I know that I need to make changes in my life, and I need to make them soon.
There is intensive therapy that I hope will be help me to lead a relatively normal life style, which is why I find myself here
If you'd like to help me receive the therapy I need to move forward please donate to my cause
