Dawney, thank you so much for your honesty and care. Your desire to reach out to others is what I admire most: it's the hardest thing to do, because it puts you on the line. But it's so worth it; what a journey you have had and are having, and what a good person you are right down to your bones.

Your words are sinking in. You are making a difference. Well done you, in so many ways.

I'm keeping this post in my head for the future. I don't know what my son will encounter in his life - but I have the feeling this story will help.

With all best wishes, and welcome back.

Xxoo

Dawn that's an amazing journey, I'm so glad you made it and are doing better now. Thank you for sharing your story with us. It helps a lot to realise that others struggle with this awful disease too and that it is possible to come back from the brink.

Dawney, I am really rotten at doing 'feelings' (on paper or otherwise!), but thanks for posting this and best wishes for the future.

Hi Dawn,

I wish I'd read this earlier but it was worth taking the time to read.

Good luck to you, stay strong xx
