REAL LIVES: people's life stories in their own words

In this part of the portal, we get to hear from people who are in recovery, and/or trying to deal with a whole range  of issues and adversity. Writing can be very therapeutic as the process of organising and clarifying thoughts, expressing them through language and then seeing the words on the page helps to contain and make sense of experience. Equally, it can be cathartic to read of another person's experiences, and inspiring to realise that others have battled, and have conquered significant obstacles to live richer lives.
