A short excerpt from Katie’s story

“It’s basically like living two lives.

You have your work life and your family, friends, partners think you do something else. You have to keep up this fake act.

Something could have happened at work and they would have no idea why you were so upset. They wouldn’t understand and you can’t come out and tell them. No. You just wouldn’t.

There was times that you want to like, just scream and tell them and then they maybe they would understand why you are, like, you are. But then at the same time, it’s not worth it. It’s hard to keep them separate but you must.  “
