About me

I give advice on Worthy Christian Forums website too.

I struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder over Winter so please forgive me if I snarl like a zombie. Someone recommended that I should do gentle purring instead. Only being silly but I do get SAD.

I am an abuse victim and run half marathons for survivors.org.uk and other charities:

I have been running for different charities for a few years (Ashgate Hospice for example). The NHS Charities Together is to me the most vital right now.

These are some of the other runs I have done. I am about average speed but I manage to raise a bit:

I believe that if you are going to help somebody suffering, then you should have been through it yourself. Then you understand. Jesus went through everything for us, so He is the best person to help us and He is God.
