“I wish I could tell the scared and fragile Tina of 10 years ago it’s going to be okay, you will get through this. I had very bad post-natal depression. Even looking at the pic on the left reminds me how bad it was and that makes me so sad. I wish I’d had the confidence to ask for help.

“Life felt pretty dark for a little while. Luckily the dark days eventually lifted. I was then a single mum, times when absolutely no income was coming in. I’d be lying if I said it was easy. 2009 was a tough year But to get through things sure as hell makes you stronger. (sic)”
