PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP ME!!!

I suffer with Bipola, Anxiety and PTSD,  i was very badly attacked in my home and the person that did it absconded between coming out of prison and being collected by the the Home Office so he is still out there and I am stuck in my home, which is now my prison, even though I was the victim.  I lost a very good job and am now on benefits but I have been told nobody can help me move, council etc., as i own my property.  I cant sell as i have an IVA and  I can move because i have no money to rent another property and i also have to small dogs (landlords seem to hate pets)!  I have now become sucicidal as this is my only way out!  I have nobody to help me and i dont want to take this option but i feel i have no choice.  My psychiatrist and therapist said my symptoms will just get worse if I stay here.

I leave in London and want to move out as i am scared to go out, every time i walk my dogs i feel like i'm going to have a panic attack.

I really am very desperate - please someone, anyone can you advise me, is there really no way around my dilemma?

    Hi Tigalil,

    I truly feel for you and there's not enough help  for ptsd sufferers or complex trauma sufferers (which I am).

    because it's a mental health issue your just left to try and get help, pick up the pieces and sort out a mind that is on high alert, checking everything, isolated, anxious, agitated, suffering from insomnia on a daily basis and when I say 24/7 I mean 24/7!!!

    To feel this way is a crime, I went away for a holiday with my husband, the peace I felt totally blew me away and I cried and cried for the realisation of what my day to day life is like when back home. Hardly any help, torture all the time.

    you check, speak to yourself inside, keep everything in order, hide away, trust no one,, all because you think that by being on high alert your keeping yourself safe, your environment safe.....I realised how bad I had gotten when I stepped away for just a week on holiday and cried for myself.

    i feel your pain and medication is a lottery, they put you on stuff then if it's no good wean you off then it all starts again. I'm never well enough to start the rapid eye treatment Im supposed to get just a measly 1 hour a week. Iv went from having a very good full time job to benefits that just pay the bills. And I'm a victim just like you but it feels more like a punishment.

    I google constantly to see if there's anymore help for people like us but there's not. My trauma comes from childhood and teen years and wouldn't even get compensation as the people who left me like this are all dead.

    sorry for my rant but I get the feeling you will agree with me xxxxxxx
