Speak up...



Kellie from www.bigfashionista.co.uk has asked for us to donate our home page over the Christmas holidays.

The Festive period is an overwhelming time of stress and pressure and family and then... silence. Days drawing out in front of you with nothing to fill them. Our normal support network are busy, with their own family, friends. You don't want to be a burden on their festive period.

Or at least that was how I used to view this time of year.

If you need them, there are people out there who can support you, or I, and get us through this time of year, and beyond. 

Please speak out. Don't suffer in silence.

You are important.

As Sera says at http://theagoraphobicfashionista.blogspot.co.uk/: if you are feeling like you cannot cope, if you cannot see a light, if you feel like you cannot go on please, please, please... pick up the phone
