What I need: money.
Why I need it: I am currently attempting to move out of my childhood home. I have no job at the moment (I am actively looking) and have no other form of income.
I suffer from Complex PTSD (C-PTSD). C-PTSD is different from PTSD. Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a psychological injury that results from prolonged exposure to social or interpersonal trauma, disempowerment, captivity or entrapment, with lack or loss of a viable escape route for the victim.
My childhood home is where I lived from ages 2 through 10. It is the home in which my mother physically, verbally, and emotionally abused me. For the record, abuse (except physical abuse) from her continued until I left her home six months ago.
It is also the home in which my sister raped and sexually assaulted me, and physically abused me. My sister had been abusing me ever since I was a baby, and though I tried to tell my mother, she wouldn’t listen and nothing was ever done about it. However, legal action is being taken against my sister as we speak.
I remember the last instance of abuse from my sister clearly. She was 15, I was 10, and it occurred in the bathtub/shower I use nearly every day.
C-PTSD is similar to PTSD in a multitude of ways, but the biggest problem for me is triggers. Some days I make it by—my coping mechanisms are good enough—and some days all it takes is a whiff of my mother’s favourite beer, or a picture of my sister to send me into a flashback, induce a panic attack, or simply bring repressed memory to the surface.
Currently I am dealing with depression, extreme self harm issues (an extremely dangerous coping mechanism), and insomnia.
I rarely go a single night without nightmares, and that’s when I do sleep. I haven’t had a healthy night’s sleep in a very long time. Some days I don’t even want to get out of bed, and I frequently question the point of existing if all I have to come back to is this damn house.
It is crucial to my recovery process that I leave this house ASAP.

I just want to put out there that Princess, an AfroLatina trans woman at Temple University, also talks about how her university downright refused to investigate her rape even though medics and police officers were there after the assault, and let her rapist walk away unquestioned.

Please use the momentum of this story to help multiply marginalized women, especially those who are getting absolutely *no* support or attention for the violence they are surviving.

I’m a black trans woman. I scored in the 99th percentile on my SAT. I graduated within the top 5% of my high school class.I might die.Dysphoria is killing me a little more every day. Furthermore, my decade old computers are beginning to break down. Without them, I can’t complete schoolwork for my college. I have no savings and no money in my checking account.I need help.
Please reblog this and please donate if you can. Things are pretty dire. All things aside, I’d like to finish college, enter STEM, get a career, and give back to the community, things I know I can do, but not while this is in the way.
im so proud of myself, i played my saxophone and didn’t cry at all and only told myself i was a piece of shit maybe once or twice
dear boys who hate doing girly things because of their chronic hypermasculinity: did you know that girls breathe? you should stop breathing in case your inhalations sound too feminine
some people are angry at me for this post
“Take The Red Pill, And I’ll Show You How Deep The Rabbit Hole Goes.”
One of the key tenets of the Red Pill philosophy is that women are instinctively hypergamous– that they onlydatemen of “superior” status and are quite literally incapable of loving men unconditionally – and thus men must be as “alpha” as possible at all times. Of course, because women are also incapable of logic and reason and only respond to emotions, it’s only fair for men to play upon their psyches in order to get their way. One of the most popular ways of doing this is known as “dread” game – deliberately making your girlfriend fear your dumping her or breaking up with her. Various ways of inducing “dread” include:
- Not answering her calls for a week
- Hitting on her friends (in a plausibly deniable way)
- Flirt with other women in front of her
- Running extremelyhot and cold – being incredibly romantic one day and incredibly distant for three days after
If this sounds suspiciously like “emotional abuse”… well,that’s because it is.
