The Gallery: One word!

One Word: Depression
This was me back in 2008, I wasn’t in a good place! We had just moved house to somewhere I had never stepped foot before, I had no friends or family support! I was ALONE! So very very ALONE! This was one of the hardest times of my life and it seemed like I would never ever get through! Each day dragged and dragged on and I had a job to do anything or go anywhere!
This isn’t me anymore! 3 years later! I still have my off days but I get out of bed excited now! I have 3 gorgeous kids! A pain in the bum other half who I love enormously! I started my own business and I love it! I am in control of my life and I am LOVING every minute!

    Good to meet you via the gallery and read such an inspiring post. It really is a haunting photograph and I bet you want to go back and give yourself a hug, I do. But as others have said it's a marker of how good the good times are too.
