My name is Grace, also known as snowcoma, and I am in desperate need of help.
I have several severe psychiatric conditions, including but not limited to, Bipolar Type One, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Agoraphobia. Lately, these conditions have worsened to unbearable levels, and both my physician and psychologist have come to the decision that I must receive intensive psychiatric care or I will be forced to go into a mental institution. I have been voluntarily institutionalized once before, and it was hell on earth. It did nothing to improve my mental health, and made me even more reluctant to seek the help I need.
In order to receive help from a psychiatrist, I must raise a truly abhorrent amount of money. Each visit is $150, with the initial visit being higher, and I do not know how many visits I will need. We are looking at the hundreds to thousands range, and I am staggering under the pressure. The state is no help on this matter, and the friends that are taking care of me are stretched so thin financially that there is only so much they can do.
It is my hope that this community will help me raise the money that I need to become stable enough to survive inside my own head. Even enough to pay for one visit is a huge step.
There will be auctions with items including clothing from Lip Service, perfumes from Black Phoenix Alchemy lab, quality leather clothing, and as many valuable items as I can part with.
Whether or not you can donate, please spread the word, because this is an urgent matter and I am barely hanging on. The humiliation of having to ask for help is weighing heavily on me, but it's a better choice than losing myself.
Thank you, and may Deity and/or Science bless you.
