Help an assault victim get much needed counseling for Severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

After several assaults from multiple individuals, I am now suffering from Severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Before the assaults I was a vibrant, happy, educated young woman but I now find myself unable to cope with everyday life...now battling never ending panic attacks and nightmares. I am no longer able to work and contribute to society like I once did. The effects have just been devastating to my life.

I tried to see counselors in my area but had them actually tell me that they didn't feel equipped to deal with someone who been through so much trauma (I didn't even know that was possible). Through the grace of God I have found a counselor who specializes in PTSD. The only challenge is that she is over an hour and a half away. I am trying to raise money to pay for gas so that I can get to and from the counselor for at least a year (she has agreed to see me and feels that it will take at least that long before I will be able to function enough to work again). I've started eating less to save money for gas,but know that isn't the healthy way to do things. So I thought I would ask for help. I know the amount I am requesting is not a lot compared to others on here, and I do understand that PTSD is not cancer, but in its own way it is killing me slowly. It is hard for me to ask for help as I used to be the person who was always helping others, but I now realize I must put my pride aside and ask for help. If I am so blessed to get the help I need and to recover, I will pay it forward on this site. If you read this and decide not to donate or are unable to...please pray for me.
