I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work that beyondblue does and want to support them. I want to break the stigma associated with mental health. To do this I am being open and transparent in sharing my story with you. In the past after an emotional divorce I slipped into depression and anxiety I had days i didn't want to get out of bed, my identity was in crisis. I felt alone, misunderstood, vunerable and empty. While also trying to function in my work and social life as life went on around me.
With groups of people I am an introvert. Rather choosing to sit back in the background and listen than participate. This can create anxiety for me stopping me doing what I love. Avoiding social situations and ultimately not fulfilling my potential.
I have made great strides over the last 12 months joining a great group of people in Evolution Runners where we support each other in our running goals as well as our life goals. When I am running I feel a clear mind, invigorated and ready to tackle my day. It has been a rewarding new chapter to my story after many years of uncertainty.
