Have you thought of writing a book on your story, your experiences?
Writing is very cathartic, it releases emotional tension especially after an overwhelming experience. You don’t need to pay for a publisher as you can self-publish for free.
I use Lulu.com http://www.lulu.com. Once your book is published Lulu can also link you onto Amazon for free if you wish to give you more exposure. It’s very easy to do and there are tutorials to help you. Purchasing is on a one per print basis, so you can pay for one book or more. You also automatically go onto Lulu’s web store so others can view and purchase your book, or if you like you can keep it private just for your eyes only. You get templates to get you started and free template designs for your book cover.
If you just want to self publish an ebook, you can also do this via Lulu.com or go on to the Amazon website https://kdp.amazon.com
There are great tutorials on both sites, and you can also do some research on YouTube https://www.youtube.com, a great free learning tool.
Do you have your own facebook page or group page? https://www.facebook.com/
Do you have a twitter account? https://twitter.com/
Do you have a blog? Go to wordpress https://wordpress.com/ to get started all for free.
I hope that the above has given you some ideas, and the only thing that it costs is time.
Good luck, Joanna.
