Body Stories started out as an idea for a small blog series, where I asked a few lovely people to guest post and tell me about the journey they had been on with their bodies (we all have our story don't we?). As the posts went up, I started to get feedback from people, all saying how much better they felt about things after reading the posts. 

As mental health has always been something I write about here I realised that the 'body stories' subject was so deeply entwined with, not just physical health, but mental health too, so I started to think about how I could reach more people through collecting your stories and making them into something that anyone could download to read, for free...

... and so, the journey to creating 'Body Stories', the e-book, begins!

If you have never read any of the body stories featured here so far (they are all linked below), I would love you to read 'The Grand Plan' post first, so you can get an idea of where I want to take this project. My biggest dream is to somehow get it into schools so that young people can read it and draw strength from your words. So, before you do anything else, please click on the stories below and have a little read. 

Done reading and want to submit a story? Scroll down to see how...


*You can choose to remain anonymous if you wish, that is totally fine

:: If you are unsure of where to start just email me first for a chat, you can reach me on

:: If you have a story to share (it can be long or short), simply type it up in a Word document or straight to email and pop it over to me on Please include at least one image (at least 1000px wide) unless you are remaining anonymous of course!

Easy as that! I will obviously respond to you as soon as I can and ask anything additional I may need. If you have a blog or a social media account you would like me to link your story to please add that information in also.

Finally, just to add: I have never done anything like this before so if you have any ideas for promoting it or can share it on your social media (I have things I can send to you to use!) then I would be very grateful for your help. I truly believe this project can change lives and would love for you to be a part of it: any sex, age, size, story welcome... everyone's journey is valid, so don't hesitate to get in touch!
