- Mum of 2, suffering my own mental health issues, I began to write this blog as a way to release feelings and emotions. At 13 my daughter was terribly bullied which has led to her having serious mental health problems of her own. She is now 16. I wanted to document our journey and hopefully be able to look back and see how far we have come.

Who am I?
I'm a Mum of 2 kids, living in South Yorkshire. Suffering with Mental Health problems for over 20 years, I've forgotten the names of the therapy's I've been through during that time. CBT, CAT, Depression Management, Group Therapy and 18months of someone looking at me and not speaking... Working my way through various anti depressants, I now seem to be settled on something that gives me neither highs nor drastic lows. Middle of the road, flat, thats me. Panic attacks, severe depression, anxiety just for starters. Tough enough, but nothing could have prepared me for the pain I experience watching my 13 year old daughter suffer the same and worse.
