The last 18 months have been an emotional rollercoaster; with more downs than ups.
Jan 2013, I got arrested. In 2012, I messaged someone telling lies, saying I had been abused and came up with some horrendous stories. I did this to get someone to talk to me. She had wrote a book about the same happening to her, and I thought if we had something in common, we would become friends, and I’ll have someone to talk to. It worked but she found out. Once I started the lie, I didn’t know how to stop and it became bigger. I went to court and in May 2013, got given my punishment. I received 12 months probation, £145 fine and restraining order against c (the person I wrote to) Since then, C hasn’t let it go and has constantly tried to bring me down. At first it worked, but now I can ignore it. She’s the one with issues now, not me and quite honestly I think her head needs checking! She’s obsessed.
But, as I say, I have moved forward a long way in the last couple of months. I am now volunteering, working with disadvantaged people; people who have also probably been in trouble, are experiencing mental health problems, or just need a friend. With this, I get a qualification and can move on to training as a counsellor. I can’t wait. Experiencing mental health for myself, and getting into trouble myself, I know how tough life can be. I hope I will be good at what I’m about to start, I think I will be.
I met with my new boss, J today for a coffee (well she had tea and I had a coke but still). We chatted a bit, she wanted more info about what I did and I was very honest, it’s the least I can do and well there’s no hiding it because once my DBS (police) check comes through, she’s gonna know anyways.
I can’t wait to start, it will feel like a new beginning to a new and better life for myself.
Also, I’ve received 1000 likes on here, so thank you all for sticking by my side.
