My name is Ann-Marie and i live in a small town in Somerset.
i Love drinking tea, cooking, comping, ancestry and am a total history geek.
I decided to start this blog as a carer of someone who suffers from mental health problems.
When i unexpectedly became a full time carer my whole life turned upside down. I gave up my job, and dedicated myself to keeping my daughter safe and helping her make her way through the maze that is her mental health, with the hope of giving her a chance at building a life for herself.
There was little to no support for me when my daughter carried out her first suicide attempt at age 14, and i really want to offer my perspective and hopefully some advice and support to those who find themselves in this emotional and tiring role.
Having grown up with a manic depressive mother and experiencing my own mental health blips over the years i feel i can offer some insight into services and making your way though the minefield that is mental health!
This blog is all about my life. The highs and the lows as a carer, me as a person in my own right and all the things that make me happy.
