My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Charity Cars, Inc., Longwood, FL, USA
I am a fifty-one year old lady with a disability. I have raised three children one of whom has a diagnosis of autism.
I was born in Albuquerque, NM. I was placed in foster care. There I was sexually abused until I ran away at the age of fourteen.
On the streets, I experienced much abuse. I turned to alcohol to numb the pain... At the age of 17, I was a full blown alcoholic.
At twenty-fourth four I was able to get sober. I stayed sober for sixteen.years, then I was given a addictive drug from a psychiatrist, after I had told him I could not take narcotics. I trusted that he wouldn't.
I don't remember taking the first drink, because I was high on the prescribed drug that had triggered my addiction. I ended up in an abusive relationship and homeless.
After eight years of drinking and abuse, I am now sober and no longer allowing that man in my life.
I live in transitional housing and I am going back to college as well as working. I am in need of a vehicle to get me around, seeing that the bus system where I live is terrible.
Thank you for your time and may God bless you.
