Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I have been visiting Trust House Grantham now for over a year, having counselling sessions to try and sort out the chaos in my head. I have tried for 15 years to get 'better' and now I know that although my past will always be a part of me, it's a part that I am no longer ashamed of, I don't feel any guilt or question anything. I accept that what happened was really shitty, but that I am not a victim, I'm a survivor. I have lots of lovely people around me including two beautiful (If slightly infuriating) children and a life to live that will not be determined or tainted by another humans actions. I am happy to be me without worrying too much about other people's perceptions or needing anyone's attention or acceptance and it's a great feeling.
The year has been tough but I've learnt so much about myself as a human and my ability to bounce back any stones thrown my way!
So here's the crunch. The love and support given to me was free of charge. Every coffee, hug, tissue. The person who answered the door with a smile and made me feel welcome. The brains behind making the house like a home. I never felt like an ill person having treatment, I was visiting a friend for a natter and a cuppa. The consideration for the visitors, in making the house stand out with a bright coloured door, but not naming it outside, giving everyone of us the anonymity that we needed to be able to make that first visit. All free, no charge, thank you!
You all will never know how you helped, but I'll try!
I'm going to go SOBER for 31 days to try and raise some money for Trust House Lincolnshire and I'd really appreciate any donations! It's going to be a very long march, please support me, every penny counts!!!
