These past few years have been exceptionally tough for me. I have had some wonderful highs, but have also experienced some very bad lows. As mentioned before in this post, I have done the rounds from counsellors to psychiatrists and doctors, and as it seems now I am returning full circle.
Darkness Into Light is a fundraising event in support of Pieta House. Pieta House provides free counselling services to anyone suffering from suicidal ideation, or self harm or those who may have been bereaved by suicide.
Earlier this year I had an anxiety attack which led me to end up again with the doctor who thought it would be beneficial for me to go to Pieta House. I never really thought of myself as someone who would qualify but sure enough I was desperate and made an appointment.
Any time I spoke to anyone there, I have been greeted with such a warmth and friendliness. I have never once felt like a burden, and they always do their best to help.
As someone who struggles, I am a big advocate of mental wellbeing. I try to do my best to be there for anyone who may need it, and want to make sure people know they can talk to someone, and that they don’t need to keep these feelings and thoughts to themselves. Because of this, I wanted to participate in Darkness Into Light his year.
On the 12th of May this year, I will be taking part in this event. If you would like to sponsor me you can do so by clicking HERE. This is a cause close to me, and many others, so if you have anything to spare, you could help make a change in someone’s life. ♥♥
