Shona Paterson's story
After my mum and dad died within weeks of each other, as an only child, I was left devastated. I couldn't even hold a sentence together nor remember whether I had washed my hair in the shower or not! My doctor sent me to CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and it was great. It helped to focus my mind on lots of things and has actually helped in other areas of my life! Listening to others share their stories was also comforting - I wasn't the only one!
