There are two main reasons why I write the articles I do. I am of course referring to the depression articles. One reason, is to help raise awareness of mental health and depression. The other, when I am suffering it sometimes helps to write down my thoughts.
So we are now half way through the year and June is one of my favourite months for the garden. Call me sad but I love roses, especially David Austin roses and these are of course now in full bloom. Gardeners world live also happens this month and I always head straight to the rose section.
A big thank you to everyone who supported my recent fundraising event. £335.00 was raised for Sense. The afternoon tea was a wonderful event and thanks also goes to those who helped with the setting up and washing up. Then event will happen again on the 05/05/18 but raising money for Mind this time. More will be announced later in the year.
For many years of my life I have seen myself as weak. From childhood through to adulthood, to the age of 35 I have always been told I was weak to an extent I believed it. The truth is far from the negative words and thoughts that lead to myself thinking, ‘I am weak!!!’.
On the 27th May 2017, I will be joining a small team of friends walking the Spires and Steeples route from Lincoln to Sleaford to raise both money and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease. Money raised will be donated to Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Today I turn 35 years of age. As we all do, I look back and wonder where the years have gone by. I remember my 18th celebrations as if it was only last year.
