“It’s been six months, and it’s a lot better now but I wonder if I’ll ever be really over it. I go for walks, or I’ll go for a drive when I’m having a bad day. My partner Anthony and I have talked about what we’d want too. We value life and friends more now, and it’s made our relationship stronger. I’m thinking of doing Meals on Wheels, or volunteering somewhere. I just need to get out so I can find my feet and start again.” – Kris
