Hi, I'm Cookie and I'm raising funds for an expedition in the Scottish Highlands and to make a film about my journey.
This started as a personal challenge, to push myself out of my comfort zone after overcoming decades of stress, PTSD, agoraphobia, addiction, depression, breakdowns and low self-esteem; it's turned into a wish to help encourage others to know that there is life after mental illness.
Why I've turned to GoFundMe: my followers have for years been suggesting I start a campaign and I've always avoided it (that low self-worth thing again!). I've more confidence now and am taking the plunge, going out of my comfort zone and asking for help.
What I've got: trolley, tent, sleeping bag, gadgets, recording equipment, clothing etc.
What I need: help with paying for campsites, the odd inn, gas and food.
Any amount donated will be gratefully and humbly received. Thank you for taking the time to read this, thank you for your support and, most of all, thank you for believing in me ;)
Love, Cookie x
