Reaching out…

We all have our own inner demons, things that dwell so deep inside our psyche that we will dig our heels in and fight against. For me that has always been reaching out and asking for assistance even when I desperately need it.

I have always believed that if I could not do it on my own, then well it was not needed. I have learned that is not the case. I have started my first ever go fund me page. I know that a lot of you may not have much in the way of money, but even if you share my link around you are helping me out greatly. 

So please click on the link below and check out my page, share it around, and if you can help out with a donation I would be grateful. Either way thank you for all assistance that you can possibly give.
