Who I am?

My name is Denise, I'm 34 and married to Darren. We have three beautiful children that are my world. Lauren is 16, Chloe is 15 and Faith is 6. We live in Ipswich in Suffolk which is in the UK.

I have suffered from depression on and off for most of my life and in 2009 I was diagnosed with ME. Life has been difficult, but I am a great believer of everything happening for a reason and maybe my illnesses have happened so that I can become a better person and also so that I can help and inspire others to believe in themselves and have lives filled with love, laughter and hope.

Before falling ill with ME I was midway through a social work degree which I will be starting again in September 2014. I am going to try to keep my blog going whilst on the degree although my posts will probably be less frequent. My blog is about being a parent, having fun together as a family, food and general lifestyle topics.
