Hi, I'm Katherine Kim, and this is my story.
I've struggled with horrible depression, anxiety, panic disorder, bulimia and suicidal thoughts and behavior for about 10 years.
10 years ago, I got raped by my classmate and then got serious abuses by ex-boyfriends sexually, physically and emotionally. They took my money, took advantages of me and humiliated me. And in 4 years, my friends killed themselves in a row. It made me want to kill myself badly. I drank everyday because I couldn't sleep at all, I cut myself everyday, I wish I would die so that I don't have to see morning sunshine anymore.
But I don't want to die, indeed. I just want peace and freedom.
In September, I came to Hawaii and my recovery started. I tried to eat, sleep and recover from all the past I've been through. But I still suffer from bulimia, insomnia and financial debt that I got because of my abusers. I even got threatened by my ex-abuser by e-mail. He broke into my house and threatened my mom. The financial debt that I got from his blackmail appears on my nightmare every night. In Hawaii, I started my DTS(Discipleship Training School) in YWAM Kona, Christianity organization. I'm finding new hope in my life. But I still need medical help and financial help. I feel like my past is chasing me so I can't breathe. I feel like I would never get out of this forever. But I believe, I can be recovered.
I studied social work. I don't want anyone especially any teenager to get through these things anymore. I believe, I can be a new guide and helper for teenagers who are suffering from same problems and women who are voiceless. I want to start new. Next 15th(15th of December) is on my 24th birthday. And I really want to repay my all debt, take my medicine again,
and get my counceiling so that I can start new life on 24th birthday. Would you help me? Your concern and donation would help me a lot. Thank you very much for your concern and help.
