My Personal Experience

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am married to a wonderful man and the proud parent of two beautiful children and as a result I am at the moment listenning to Dubstep and teaching my older child to drive. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki Master, with a love of art and the creative experience. I love to dance and sing and I especially Love cuddles with my gorgeous cat. I experience the normal ups and downs in life, including the mind bending challenges that no one would wish upon their worst enemy, yet lift you to discover that you are more than you think you are.

The choice to be at home and care for my son who suffers extreme anxiety, depression and social difficulties has been difficult, yet the greatest gift. Many have not understood the lengths we have gone to. In recent times he has shown a greater capacity to step out and connect once more with the world. He is growing into a wonderful young man with a beautiful heart. This powerful change has been the greatest gift and my heart soars as I know that we did all that we could to change and to nurture his recovery whilst creating a healthy environment for our other child and us.

  1. I understand. My daughter had bipolar disorder and I felt very misunderstood as a parent too. I felt dismissed by the Health Care System too. It is a very stressful time. It’s great that you are writing about it. I am too but it’s a little late. My daughter was killed in a car accident last year.

      I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of my own child has been a possibility that I have lived with for a number of years, yet I know I can’t really imagine the pain. Sending you much Love x

      • I understand that fear all too well. One of the first things I admitted after Justine was killed in a car accident was “Well, I’m happy she didn’t commit suicide”. That likely sounds cruel but the possibility was very real. Thanks for your support.
