“…attending the group has been something that has kept me strong.”

“I started attending Changes Bristol groups after my son turned 3. I had few friends and felt anxious and isolated. I joined Changes and decided to give it 4 weeks. I returned home each Tuesday for 3 weeks and cried. It was so different to what I was used to . . . I was so shy and it was difficult to share. My husband told me to stop putting myself through the agony but I stuck to my 4 week plan. On the 4th week I came home smiling!
It has now been almost 4 years since I joined Changes Bristol and I’ve rarely missed a week.
Life has had some serious ups and downs in that time but attending the group has been something that has kept me strong.
I’ve got a group of friends I met through Changes and these friendships are like nothing I’ve experienced before. We talk openly together, we meet up regularly despite how we might be feeling, we bring laughter, tears, anger – whatever we feel is OK. We accept one another and I feel fully accepted by these friends.
I’m honestly not sure I would be here now if it wasn’t for Changes Bristol.”
