My story

[p]Where to start?![/p] [p]As many of you may know in 2014 my life took a bit of a turn; suddenly things fell apart, I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder (and later depression) and have since been piecing the bits back together. [/p] [p]I still battle with my mental health on a daily basis, and I am proud to stand up and say so.  In fact, I struggled so much to find a way to articulate what was happening when I was first diagnosed, that I decided to share my experiences in the hope they may be able to help others.  I started a blog dedicated to raising awareness of mental health and it is something I am incredibly proud of (one of my posts was even shared by Stephen Fry on Twitter!)[/p] [p]I have my own cake making business ([url=http://www.bubakes.co.uk]BuBakes[/url]) and am very proud to make a donation to Mind for every order I receive.  I have held a couple of fundraisers, but I decided I’d like to challenge myself to something where I could not only raise a larger sum of money, but also (hopefully!) show myself just how far I have come since my breakdown.  I want to show that having mental illness does not mean you cannot face challenges, and that it does not need to hold me back from something I feel so passionate about.[/p] [p]Clearly walking 40 miles in 24 hours seemed the best way to do all of this… I have my training plan drawn up, and will be updating here and over my social media with reports of my progress (I’m both excited and terrified in equal measures about the whole thing)[/p] [p]What’s left is for me to say “Thank you” for visiting my page and reading my story. [/p] [p]If you would like to come to a fundraising event (I will be holding a couple of bake sales to raise some pennies) then watch this space! You can also find details on [url=bubakes.co.uk]bubakes[/url] or [url=http://www.facebook.com/bubakes]facebook.com/bubakes[/url]. All sponsorship is greatly appreciated - also a big “you rock” for every share on social media, word of encouragement, and ounce of belief you are able to spare me -  I genuinely am SO thankful.[/p] [p]Together we can make talking about mental health a part of everyday conversations, and get rid of the stigma once and for all.[/p] [p]Huge amounts of love to you all - oh, and don't forget to check the giftaid option if applicable![/p] [p]Bu xx [/p]
