‘Since then I have been in therapy up to three times a week. I now have these diagnoses that I carry with me. It’s confusing and I’m trying to get my story under control and use that to make something good. ‘

On exercise and mental health, she said, “What it does is you can process things. Whether it’s cycling and chatting together, or running and crying alone, you must have that liberation …

You also need to have those times when you make yourself feel really sad, when you think, ‘Why me? ‘We’ll all think that way from time to time. It means we can handle it. It has brought us together as a family.

It’s also important to talk to the kids and not just think that everything is okay. Gordon is a really great one to talk to. Sometimes I just say to him “Seriously?” And he says, “No, we need to talk about it.” Sometimes that is annoying ‘.
