I lost my child when they were 7.5 weeks old, which caused me to go off the rails. I ended up divorced and turned to alcohol.

My current situation is that I am a lot better and working towards becoming a volunteer. I feel more confident and Street Connect have helped me a lot. I now have a part-time job and Adam [Street Connect Intern] has got me involved in a project called Glasgae Roasters [a coffee roasting social enterprise]. I am attending the Street Connect recovery group in Glasgow on a Tuesday.

My hope for the future is I would love to be a mentor one day to people in my situation who have had similar problems.
