My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page. I'm taking on this incredible challenge and fundraising in support of Mind for better mental health. When I was ready, I wanted to speak out openly about my personal story to help out those suffering with mental health problems. [/p][p]I had struggled myself as my life became tough for me to handle. I constantly thought negatively of myself and felt stuck in a negative spiral. I thought I could fight through it alone but my negative thoughts became uncontrollable. This caused me to lose control of myself attempting to end it all. I found the courage to seek help and needed time to recover. Time is the best healer. I'll always be thankful to all the support & services I had at my lowest in helping me come back stronger. [/p][p]Running changed my life during my recovery. I started jogging casually at first and then took on several challenges from Movember, 5K, 10K, Half-Marathon and now the full London Marathon. Keeping fit, healthy, maintaining a routine and going for goals are my medicines in managing my own mental health. I enjoy the challenges of running as it keeps me happy and not worry about anything else. [/p][p]Mental Health matters to me a lot as I know the struggles it can cause. When you lose your mind you're in a bad place and it can be tough to get out of it. I can try to help people and show there is nothing wrong asking for help to get better again.[/p][p]Anyone out there suffering with mental health problems can come back and it can be done. If I can come back from where I have come from then anyone can do it too. [/p][p]Let's fight for better mental health together. [/p][p][b][u]Who are Mind?[/u][/b][/p][p]We're Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We're here for you. Today. Now.
