"As the sessions went on, I found myself wanting to live life again"

(as the patient),

Some would say it gets easier with time I never believed them. How can it? ! After saying goodbye to my baby boys I felt a black cloud hanging over my head. I shut myself off from the world, my friends and even my own family. Not only was I suffering but I was making my own family suffer also.

I was reluctant to allow anyone in, the day my partner and I spoke about parting I knew I had to seek help. I was scared, my anxiety had a hold on my life.

The day I met Josie I can honestly say I didn’t think there was any sense of talking, but as the sessions went on, I found myself wanting to live life again. Enjoyment within my family, new bonds appeared with people I’d shut out.

I know nothing will bring my two angels back, and I guess I have finally stopped blaming myself for their deaths.

Now I live day by day, step by step – some days are great and some days are not so good, but with the help I gained from Josie I make sure that if I do feel lost again, I now know that there is support and a loving family ready to catch me.
