The decision to write this post and publicly disclose this information isn’t one that comes easily. No doubt I’ll be hovering over the post button for a long time before gathering the courage to actually take that leap… But here goes!
The reason I have decided to do this is to raise awareness and to broach a subject that just simply isn’t the usual topic of conversation amongst friends, partners or (for want of better phrasing) Mr/Miss Saturday Night. But maybe if enough people share their stories, attitudes will change and this could become a topic of conversation that doesn’t need to be had in hushed voices.
So this is it, my armour is coming off.
