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.
