Donations

We were just discussing the fact that I have never asked for a dime and started and maintained this blog just because I want to help people by sharing my experiences with a narcissist/psychopath.

I can’t tell you how rewarding it is for me when I get comments thanking me for my blog and the occasional email like I got the other day from the mom of a 17 year old girl. The mom emailed me a while back very concerned about her daughter’s involvement with an abusive young man (narcissist in training), we emailed back and forth a bit and the other day I got an email from her saying her daughter went to prom with a different boy and she thinks the N is out of the picture. I cried, sobbed, to think I had anything to do with saving that young girl from a life of hell with an N.

I actually never in a million years thought I would be getting the hits I do in a day or have over 400 followers, never!!! my God it wasn’t that long ago I was thrilled to get “a” comment, let alone not be able to keep up with them. It am thrilled to be reaching that many people but saddened that there is such a huge need out there.

Together though we are speaking out, breaking the silence, removing the shame and stigma attached to domestic abuse is the only way to end it. Narcissist’s may not have a conscience, guilt, or a soul but they sure do care what people think and don’t want people to be “on to them”. The more information we get out there about psychopaths and narcissist’s the less power they have, it is true; knowledge is power.

That said, I have opened a “gofundme” account at the urging of a blogging friend. There have been times during the life of my blog that I have gone through tough times financially and had people email me wanting to help and I have never accepted. I find I am out of options this time, I have no resources, and the clock is ticking.

I know that most people that come here are broke themselves and struggling to get back on their feet after being discarded by a narcissist and I don’t want anyone to feel pressured in the least!! please!!

But you never know, there might be some rich person out there just looking for someone to donate to, 😉 and I will be here waiting. haha

I am not anticipating a huge response but as long as I get enough donations to pay for it I would like to put everyone who donates name in a hat and pull a name. I will paint something special for the person who’s name I draw and pay to ship it to them. It will be an original Lady Witha Truck piece of art that will be a one-of-a-kind, signed and dated.

This is a link to the site where donations can be sent http://www.gofundme.com/30o1l8 or you can click on “Donations” at the top of this post. I have a page on their site, so you can also go to Gofundme and search for Carrie Reimer, they keep a running total of the donations and notify me when there has been a donation made, the money then goes to my Pay Pal account.

I sincerely apologize if I have offended anyone.

Hugsxxxxx

    1. shawn, if you want to talk about it, don’t be shy, we’ve all been there and we’re hear to listen and help any way we can. there aren’t many resources for men out there concernimg abuse by one of these “people”, men suffer just as much as rhe women victims do perhaps even more because society tends to think a man should “buck up” and not show “weakness” , (having emotions is not a weakness).

      You didn’t give any details but the only way to get over a N is to have no contact with them whatsoever.

      come by anytime you need to rage, rant, cry, ask questions…whatever you need, just an ear to listen.

    2. Shawn, don’t die over another person. Find life, and it seems it cannot be with that person, doesn’t it? Today, not tomorrow, make moves to step away, to live not in the reach of that person. Don’t die over her.

    1. Morgan, I didn’t make it very clear when I wrote the post and have changed the post a bit and provided a link.
      thanks for asking, WordPress doesn’t allow donate buttons for some reason, maybe I would have to upgrade or something. I have had a heck of a time figuring this out. if I could remember my passwords when I open these sites it would be immensely helpful. Old age? PTSD? or maybe just stressed. 😉
      have a good night

  2. I’ve wondered how long you’ve been doing this blog. I’m fairly new to it. How do I find that donation space? I’m not well off, by any means. “the wasband” was basically embezzling from me in order to pay off his 28 secret accounts (via online transfers). He admitted it verbally, but community property laws prevent me from prosecuting. My American Express bill was about 37k, and that was just one of the credit card bills in my name! I’d like to know how I can contribute at least a little something. I’ve benefitted from your blog, and it is a tangible way I can say thank you.

    1. Lori, I started my blog in April 2011, and had one visitor that month, a year later I had around 700 visitors in a month and now 2 years since starting this site I have had as many as 3400 visits in a day but average around 800 visits a day. It keeps me quite busy actually!
      My God! 28 secret accounts? you must have been horrified!! the bastard!!
      Anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated but please don’t feel obligated. I supplied a link in the post just now, or you can go to http://www.gofundme.com and search for me by name, Carrie Reimer and my page will come up and from there it is pretty self explanatory.
      Thanks a million

  3. I am just trying to see how much will be gobbled up in fees due to being in Australia… With the sort of traffic you now get hopefully we can all put in even $10…

  4. Nadine,
    I just figured it out; sheesh if everyone put in $10 that would be alot of money!! way above my goal!
    There aren’t supposed to be any fees to the person donating.
    I think they just take 2.5% at my end, but not sure with international donations.
    Thanks for looking into it.

  5. You don’t offend, Carrie. I fully understand, and I truly truly hope something comes to you through this. Sincerely, if I were in a better position I would myself give to you – I would love to give to you.

    Sincere best luck with this.

  6. Carrie, you are so talented and gifted. Glad you are using your own resources to better yourself. Hey, why not post some photos of the paintings and unique art you do, with a price + shipping? That would be a grand way to get the donation page going. God bless.

    1. Ray’s Mom, I am afraid I don’t have any of my art work laying around. I sold it all a couple of years ago and have only painted gifts for family the past few years because I just didn’t have the time or the room. And to be honest I was pretty depressed alot of the time and couldn’t get motivate.
      I have spent this week painting a flower tin I am going to post, I just finished it today. I put alot of hours into everything I paint, even with not working it took me 4 days to complete, putting in 4-5 hours a day. I certainly could not make a living at it but it is a nice way to make extra cash doing something I love.
      Thanks for the suggestion.
      Hugs
      Carrie
