Perspectiva Corporum Regularium, Wenzel Jamnitzer, 1568.
Dearest friends and followers,
Well I never thought my life would come to this moment, I have been living in an abusive household since I was born and today things really got out of hand. I was brutally attacked verbally and physically today but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. I have been abused physically, emotionally and sexually since I was a little boy and I have seen numerous therapists and doctors.
Medications masked my problems and they never went away. People don’t know what it’s like when you are a gay LGBT person trying to get along in the world. It’s hard enough as it is and to have people abusing me in my own home is breaking me down inside. I am physically and mentally breaking down, at my lowest weight ever at only 109 lbs. I am 5’9”. I also have an ulcer from all the stress.
As I am typing this my right ear is throbbing from being smacked across the face, and the scratchmarks are stinging. I am sitting in a hotel room across town by myself wondering what on earth I am going to do next. I know I have a lot of etsy fans on here and they have probably seen that I am trying to move out of my current living situation and get to a healthier place.
I used to be a happy, vibrant person… I am so broken at this moment in time. I have been crying all day and my eyes are so incredibly red and puffy, I hardly recognize myself in the mirror.
Please if you can help me in any way shape or form make a donation to my paypal at
Please help if you can, just a reblog is all I need. I need you guys more than I ever have in my entire life. Tears are streaming down my face as I am typing right now. I hate that it has to come to this.
Your friend, Daniel
I will re-blog this when I do get one.
