Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
I had quite a difficult childhood and was forced to move for mine and my family's safety from my Father who was convicted of Murder, he was let out early on good behaviour...he soon tracked us down and I completely lost control of everything, including my safety. Throughout high-school I had extreme depression, anxiety and an eating disorder because of this (it had messed my head up much more then I ever realised, now I look back I guess it was my way of getting back control) I found it hard to even get out of bed in the morning due to physical and mental illness (not eating made me rather poorly to the point that I was passing out regularly) I couldn't face people, let alone a classroom, all I ever did was shake and cry! I was in top set for everything and came so close to doing my GCSEs but unfortunately I didn't have the strength to stand up, I had no energy, no life left in me, I was ready to die...After 6 difficult years of counciling I finally started to become myself again, the chirpy, happy girl that everyone had come to know, I felt safe again, I could finally smile without any fakeness behind it.
I feel as though I have been given a second chance at having a healthy life even if I have created lasting damage on my body through not eating.
As I did not complete my GCSEs and will be 19 very soon, I now have to pay to have an education, but because of lack of education on paper, people are unwilling to hire me, I feel as though I'm stuck on a roundabout!
I set up this page to see if anyone would be willing to help me achieve my goals...all help would be greatly appreciated,
