Keri has always been fit and healthy.
The mother-of-three from Shropshire ran every week come rain or shine and often took part in 10k events.
That was until she began to suffer terrible pelvic pain following the birth of her third child and her physio delivered some devastating news.
Keri would have to stop doing the sport she loved or risk doing long-term and irreparable damage to her body.
REACHING OUT FOR HELP
Left devastated with no sport to keep her occupied – and “cut adrift” after giving up work to raise her three children – Keri’s mental health started to suffer. When she tried to step back into working life, the mental health issues she was experiencing only worsened.
“I went through a series of bad job interviews and was struggling to get out of bed,” says Keri.
“Something had to give and I eventually reached out to my GP, who diagnosed me with severe clinical depression and put me on a plan for recovery.”
