"I went from happily married to wanting to commit suicide, life was unbearable"

Meet Jules @yogaforthelads sharing his #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are his words 💚

.

"We deal with things in different ways and my story is no exception

.

"It's ok not to be ok"....

.

This is what a lady friend told to me after I had a panic attack

whilst driving my lorry on a busy motorway. It was a hot day in May

2017, the windows were down, the noise of the traffic was unsettling

me, with the windows up it was too hot and I couldn't get the a/c to a pleasant temperature and then the attack happened

.

My life was torn apart when I found out my 23 year marriage had suddenly ended. I hit rock bottom, I took this ladies advice and I visited my Dr. I was subscribed Citalopram to help me cope

.


I was off work for 5 months, I was a vacant man, no interest in anything or anyone. I took to trawling the internet for a solution because I didn't like being a nobody, worthless to anyone, I was very lonely

.


On Facebook an advert appeared for Yoga, a new class starting up near me. I messaged the lady and explained my situation. The last message she wrote was "I challenge you to try Yoga"

.

I went out of my comfort zone and attended. WOW!

.

Savasana made me cry. The teacher said "The thoughts you have are just clouds, acknowledge them and just watch those clouds blow by"

.

I cried, the pressure release was instant it was beautiful.

My life has been turned around by Yoga and especially by Rachael

@wellbeingwithrachael who has guided me through some real bad times

.

Since becoming single my diet has changed too, I am now vegetarian. Cooking is fun again and along with 80's music blaring away I'm one very happy man!

.

I've read so many stories on Fierce Calm & if I'm honest they bring me to tears. How people tell their life's journey is amazing & what's even more amazing is how people have turned themselves around .

The benefits of Yoga for mental health is truly amazing and I tell

this to everyone I know

.


I am now 9 weeks off tablets & my life is just full of hope. I love life!
