Thank you for visiting my fundraising page in support of the 20km Dorset Rollercoaster walk on 21st August 2021.
It feels fantastic to have such a challenge to face, however it comes with its own fear and complexities. Nothing of which cannot be overcome.
In 2010 I was diagnosed with debilitating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. However at this time I wasn’t fully aware that the physical symptoms were manifesting due to suffering mentally. In 2018 I was subsequently diagnosed with PTSD as a result of experiences whilst policing for 15 years.
I believed I was a strong, resilient, confident female, however my mind and body thought otherwise. I fought for many years to overcome the issues I faced, however it was only when I hit rock bottom that I sought help.
As an ex Police Officer it was difficult to find expert trauma therapy and I would never wish this feeling of absolute loss and despair on anyone else.
With my partner having served in the Army and other family and friends still serving I feel Rock2Rocovery is a fantastic charity to support to assist others in their time of need.
Thank you for donating and your generosity is appreciated.
