World Suicide Prevention Day 10/09/22
34% of women and AFAB individuals with premenstrual disorders are likely to attempt suicide in their lifetime. PMDD awareness IS suicide prevention.
This month I feature in the fantastic enable magazine. Aimed at shining a light on disabilities.

Back in April I volunteered with IAPMD (The International Association for Premenstrual Disorders) as an awareness champion for PMD awareness month. I organised a success raffle and online auction to raise much needed funds for the charity. The monies raised totalled in at £529.00 GBP. This organisation is one so close to my heart as a sufferer of PMDD for over twenty years, they have helped immensely in my being able to accurately articulate my illness and gain adequate support. It gives me great pleasure to mention that I am now an official volunteer for the organisation and will be helping with fundraising and social media in the coming months.
