but that life became “boring” and her two children “became her entire existence and saved me” from a life of “pure apathy”.

she said fair-weather friends drifted away but in a “magic moment” when one of her children brought her a picture he had made “all my doubts were erased”.

“i had the perfect life — two beautiful babies who loved me more than anything. it was and is bliss” she wrote.

“i’m happier than ever.

“right now life is good. and being a mum is the best part of it.”
