When I first went to see Debbie I was at the lowest point I had ever been in my life and kept telling myself “this shouldn’t be happening to me” and “I’m meant to be the strong one”. I was petrified to go, was a big thing even to leave the house let alone to see a stranger to confess that I was losing the plot. Debbie instantly made me feel less ill at ease and she had the most amazing ability of drawing out of me old problems I didn’t ever think bothered me. I have learnt to know my triggers, when I need to sit back, to take stock and say, ok, you can deal with this and I refer back to a passage I read on the recommendation of Debbie, basically I now “treat life like a salami, take it in bite sized chunks, don’t try to eat it all at once, your brain will get indigestion!”
