The minute I walked in the door of Cork ARC, I felt a peace come over me. The house gave me a place where I could feel supported and safe.
I walked a lot and was very fond of exercise, but I had never been to the gym. Being with other guys at the ‘Get Active’ programme really turned my life around. It’s like a new beginning.
You could be sitting at home, saying you don’t want to do it, but the confidence Cork ARC gives you rubs off and you just end up doing it with the group.
I could never draw or paint, yet Art Therapy allowed me to express more than I ever could have in words. I loved the freedom to play with the art materials.
The minute I walked through the door I knew I had done the right thing, I felt myself relax.
It helped to know that my grief is normal and that other people experience similar feelings.
