    Thanks for the mention Britt 😘.
    I truley hope that I am being of some help, and it does make me feel good about myself to think that I am, especially after feeling like scum of the earth these past few years.

    My confidence and self worth were zero and I felt like a good for nothing piece of crap!

    In the past I've been fantastic at giving others words of encouragement and support, whilst giving myself the complete opposite. I am now learning that I myself deserve the encouragement and support from myself and I am worth it!

    All the best everyone, keep fighting that big old feral beast!! Let's Go!!
    Ps Sorry If I tend to ramble a bit a times in my posts, I tend to take the long route!!

    I think everyone who bravely shares their story and/or support here are not only helping themselves but others :) @How the F did I get here

    You can be very proud of yourself for your work towards your goals :) Looking forward to hearing how that holiday goes!
