Wow how our journey has progressed, Emily is now studying A levels after doing so well in her GCSE's. She loves psychology and especially how children learn. Originally she wanted be a teacher, but studies are getting her down. A volunteer position with a toddler group has given her cause to deviate from her original path. In June she will become an apprentice in a nursery after completing her AS levels. Her ultimate goal is to open her own nursery.
She still struggles, but mainly with anxiety and has started a course of private hypnotherapy sessions to try and combat this.
I soldier on, my bond with Emily is very strong, although we fall out at times just as other families, I will always be incredibly proud.
If you are new to our story read it from the start, if you can. See what can be achieved with determination and never giving up.
If you are in a dark and desolate place right now, know that it is possible to get through it, even when you want to call time on the whole thing, Stay strong, even in the darkest hours, there is always a chink of light, it can just take a bit if finding.
- 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.
