thanks for the invite to share.
My name is Heather Bassett
I am privileged to have survived life threatening illnesses as a child and gone on to be a World Champion Athlete. Lacrosse 1986
Chronic Idiopathic Depression ruled my life for 20+ years, I was numb, disconnected and my coping mechanisms were, alcohol, food and pushing in my 35 year old business and being bullied.
I was hospitalised for months at a time with depression and at 57, I heard a spiritual healer speak. It opened my mind to a whole new universe that I knew nothing about. A whole new language.
Throwing myself into the deep end of self discovery was confronting, challenging and confusing!
I was lost, found, triggered by EVERYTHING, burdened with guilt, embarrassment shame…
At 58 I am living the best time of my life! I have found my voice, regaining my confidence, my sexuality, I no longer take medication, nor have a mental health condition!
I am ready to be seen, heard and have danced naked on stage in a production called Trilogy,my daughter by my side and my 80 year old parents in the front row.
I no longer need or drink alcohol, binge eat and have lost almost 40 kilo's in weight.
I'm transitioning much in my life, the ripples are beautiful. I am having a love affair with an extraordinary af woman! Me!
Much of my life I thought I was alone, thought I was the only one feeling all the feels and now I know
