Hello, my name is Bryony and I have had OCD since the age of 12. I am now 36. In the intervening years I have also suffered from eating disorders and depression. But if you really want proof that I'm mental, then look no further than the fact I am doing the London Marathon. It's going to be very hard. But running/walking/crawling 26.2 miles can't be any harder than not being able to move at all because of the crushing weight of depression on your chest. So: LET'S DO THIS! And thank you so so much for sponsoring me. The work that Heads Together is doing to tackle the stigma around mental health is, quite frankly, awesome. As are you. xx
