I’m a 40 something single mum to an amazing little boy who is my world.
I was always quite a positive, resilient and determined person, I faced adversity and difficult times in my life, like most people, but made it to my mid thirties dealing with things well, and getting on with life.
Yes there were ups and downs, like everyone, but I could always get through them and always saw light at the end of the tunnel…
I had a great circle of friends and a successful career. But after a number of large life events, in a short space of time, I lost my way, I lost my voice, and I didn’t know what to do next… I felt like I was going through the motions, but not actually living my life.
I felt out of control and didn’t know how to get it back. I found it really hard as I didn’t know where to turn, it had started affecting my physical health, my sleep, my weight, my hair even started falling out… I was so anxious all of the time.
