Background

A bit about me

image

I was born in Cornwall in 1948. I live in London. I worked as a community mental health advocate for a number of years until I retired in 2013.

I was sexually abused as a child. I did not know I had been abused until I had a series of psychotic episodes in my late thirties and early forties.

In my 50s I was  diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder. While it was never diagnosed I believe that in my twenties and thirties I had borderline personality disorder.
