It is mental health awareness this week and it is so good to see lots of the lovely women (and Men!) supporting this.
I wanted to share a picture of my bestie, whom is a lovely lady that has supported me, without her my mental health wouldn’t be what it is today. Since aged 11 she has been my go to.
She has seen me through many an up and a down, she would stay with me when I wouldn’t leave the house, she picked me up when I fell down (literally). When my asthma was bad she would check I was breathing in my sleep. When I had to visit a psychiatrist, she walked me there and waited for me to come out. She listens to my troubles even though she has some of own. When I made bad choices in life, with hair, clothes, men, films she still stood next to me as my friend.
She still makes me laugh till it hurts and hopefully I will be able to be as good a friend to her as she has been to me.
Be like Sam, have a friend like Claire xx
Photo: This was taken at Newmarket Races a few years ago, Claire and I were making our hair bigger so it looked like a picture from the 80’s.
