Determined , Supportive , Articulate
I was married for 7 years before I separated from my partner, sold my business and moved with my two young children closer to family. But instead of it being easier it turned out to be harder then I thought. I became a recluse, isolated myself from the outside world. I started to hate everything I loved but most of all I hated myself. I had no help or support. I didn't want it till it started affecting me physically. I use to punish myself by punishing my body. Lack of food caused whole load of new problems. I got help and they gave me a lot of support because I didn't have any other support. The depression was so bad I thought I couldn't live in the outside world but now I am due to start a childcare course and got a work placement. Life turns around in the most surprising ways. My children are my strength and give me hope.
Because I have been through it and I know how important it is to have someone listen to you and support you. It was the worst years of my life but it's at the back of minty mind if not away from it. I believe everyone suffers from it some time in life but some suffer more than others. I am proof you can change things around with the right support, I want to be that support and the reason to change a persons life positively.
Being a sufferer of this disorder has made me want to help others in this situation. Everyone hates one thing or another about their body. Some people can control their urges some want to change their looks. But not everyone can afford cosmetic surgery and in order to make changes they can only take control of what they give their body. Hence a problem starts ie. eating disorder. It's a mentally affected problem but not one where we can't get help and get it in control. I wan to be that help and share my experiences.
I have been a single parent for past 5 years and my children are now 10 and 7 years old. It can be hard, very hard when there is no help, no support but it's the most rewarding thing in the world. Why? Because you get credit for all the hard work you put in by your children's achievements and most of all the biggest reward is their smile. I can share my experiences and give advice on how life can be easy,rewarding and worthwhile . At the same time how you can organise daily routines to let you have a life as well.
To help other people in situations like mine. I have a lot to offer on life experiences. My struggle with depression and eating disorder can help me to explain to people suffering how I got through it and I can give sound advice on being a single parent. It's difficult but not impossible. I would like to give people a positive outlook to their problems/worry.
