Somebody mentioned a review of the decade on facebook and I decided to blog about things which have meant something to me, personnally. You will probably find alot of it boring, but it is theraputic for me! They come in no particular order.
I had the car of my dreams, my MINI COOPER - our first ever brand new car
I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer
I fought and beat Stage 3 Breast Cancer
I beat depression in 2008 following therapy with a brilliant guy Dave Atkinson and for the first time in my life, accepted myself
I beat my disordered eating pattern
I gave birth to my second son Harry Llewelyn in May 2001
9/11 and the aftermath
My son was diagnosed autistic and I fought for years to get help for him and I eventually did!
I re-trained as a dog groomer
I set up and ran a successful part time business as a dog groomer for 4 years until cancer struck
I learnt how to blog and opened up a whole new world of friendship
Tony Blair got kicked out of government - sadly, not before he did the country alot of damage
I did the Race for Life in 2008 - my first ever race
I got back together with my dad
I started running seriously
I made a Digital Story about Harry to help teach those in authorities how hard it is for children like him
I got my eldest son through his "issues" and at the age of 9 he actually ate Pizza (mixed up food)
The list is endless but to sum it up... it has been a difficult decade for me in lots of ways. I have battled and conquered disordered eating and depression. I have had two children with special needs and I have dealt with them successfully. If they hadn't had me as a mum, they would be prisoners of their own disorder. I have battled cancer and come out the other side. I lived for 3 years with virtually no sleep because Harry was such a troubled sleeper. Despite it all..... I am HERE and I am ready, just ready to make the next decade count.
