      Trying to get back on track after a bad 12 months of tragedy in my personal life. I hope to prove to myself that this is possible.

    Type 2 diabetic diagnosed in January 2016.
    I did so well ... May 2018 changed all that with losing mum unexpectedly.
    I have to get myself fit again following further tragedies that knocked my
    confidence and led me into depression. My son died. My fiance left me.
    So, after licking my wounds, and losing my health, I am fighting back.
