My Story

My story

I have been battling depression and anxiety for a number of years. Exercise has played a large part in me being able to claw my way back through the fog that I had been living in for quite some time.

Depression is a horrible, lonely experience. Even if you are surrounded by loving and caring family and friends you still feel utterly alone and cut yourself off from everyone you love and care for.
It steals your self worth and ability to make meaningful connections with others because you feel utterly worthless. Negative emotions are heightened and positive emotions are deadened. It can be debilitating and I would stay in bed for days and still lack the energy to function in my everyday life.

Thankfully; with the help of my loving husband, friends and family; I have learnt how to manage this debilitating disease and have finally remembered how to laugh wholeheartedly and experience life in all of its glory.

I want to raise this money to help those that are stuck in the mire of depression and anxiety. So I'm taking on this challenge to help Beyond Blue deliver programs and services that make a difference in the lives of people experiencing mental health conditions

I also want to prove to myself that I CAN do this and I CAN succeed!
