In Gratitude: Thursday

A Year Long Challenge – We asked seven people who manage a mental health issue to take a photo each week, about something they are grateful for. Being In Gratitude starts to change how we perceive things. Read more.

I’m the proud mum of three grown up children. I am a survivor of domestic abuse. I was with my ex Husband for over 10 years and during those years I wished I would die. I went into a refuge for six months after the relationship ended and was diagnosed with depression and PTSD. Dealing with depression whether it’s clinical or circumstantial is like trying to walk in concrete at times. Through the support of family and friends and two therapists (one personal centred and the other an EMDR therapist) my past feels as though its finally past. I am in the present and no longer suffer with flash backs or overly worry about the future. I’ve been with my current partner for over 4 years now and I like to call him my BFG! He allows me to be me. We have 3 fur babies who take up most of the bed on a lazy Sunday morning!

Today, I am grateful for…

What are you grateful for today?
