To raise funds to pay for an operation

by Charlie10 in Hull, England, United Kingdom

Hi. I am an adult survivor of child sexual abuse. My mum died when I was 8 years old, and I was put into the care of someone who sexually abused me for four years. I have suffered with anxiety and depression nearly all my life. As a child I used my body as a vessel to carry the hurt and guilt I felt. I still do this mentally now. I've had counselling on and off since I was 13 without any success of feeling any different about the hatred I have of My body. I have lost six stone in weight  with the hope that this would help me accept myself better. This hasn't as I I have been left with lots of saggy skin on my body, in particular my belly. I cannot afford to have the operation to take the skin away as I am unemployed and don't have any money.  I tried to take my own life 18 months ago because the loose skin makes me feel so bad, but the police found me and took me to hospital. I have seeked help

from my doctor and the n h s, but they said that they can't help me. I am hoping that there are people out there that can help me so I can then find the operation and help me feel normal. Thank you.

Got an idea like this?
