Yesterday (Monday) I was lucky enough to watch my friend Fiona carry the Olympic Torch through Rugby. She was running to raise awareness of mental health stigma and I think up to a point most if not all of us have come across people who just don't understand what mental health entails.

It was a very joyful and emotional time and even though I won't be watching the Olympics I am very proud that I was there at such an momentous occasion in the history of this country.

We all went back to Fi's house to stuff our faces and later on have our pic's taken with Fi and the torch, what a laugh, it was like being photographed by the paparazzi as everyone wanted the pics on their cameras too.

So I had a brilliant day, I am however paying for it today, am in absolute agony and on top of that can't sleep but it was so worth it. ;-)

Gentle angel hugs to all of you xxxx

When your sick you see a doc when your brains ill you get help.
