Marion is a retired speech pathologist and is a creative soul with a special interest in photography and flower arranging. She lives with depression and anxiety, which has led to her being hospitalised many times. Following an episode during an overseas trip, Marion was diagnosed with Bipolar.
Marion’s resilience to manage life and work while facing these challenges is a testament to her capacity and strength. But one time at church, when she sought prayer after the service, these words from the prayer rang like a bell: ‘God doesn’t want you to be unhappy.’
Her household situation had become difficult, relationships there felt stuck, and home was no longer a peaceful place.
Marion turned to LifeCare for support to work through her challenges.
