Eleven years ago I had a very bad breakdown. I felt worthless, that I couldn't do anything of importance, that I was a failure and that everyone would be better off if I was no longer alive.
I heard about SPAN Foster Drive and my care worker at Stonebridge sent in a referral for me. I opted for the computer group even though I did not know how to turn one on.
I attended the group and the Training Area Manager (Tim) helped me to eventually pass computer exams and feel as if I was capable of actually doing something worthwhile. I felt as though I was important to my family and that I could eventually get my life back on track.
I have now been volunteering as an Administrator for Tim in the I.T. Group for 4-5 years and I would like to thank him and SPAN for giving me back my life. I still cannot cope very well with lots of people or buses but I know (hope) that this will get better.
Thank you Tim
