October marks Pituitary Awareness Month and this month I have been gathering a percentage of the sales from my Depop Shop for The Pituitary Foundation.
As of this year, it’s now ten years of being diagnosed with my Pituitary condition. I can hardly believe it’s been so long. Whilst sometimes it feels raw to even discuss today, I truly feel that acknowledging the darkness can illuminate hope and comfort for others processing similar things.
Known as the ‘master gland’ from school, the pituitary gland is often called the master gland because it controls several other hormone glands in your body, including the thyroid and adrenals.
The most common problem with the pituitary gland occurs when a benign tumour (used to describe a ‘growth’) also called an adenoma, develops. And the more common pituitary conditions include acromegaly, Cushing’s, diabetes insipidus, hypogonadism, hypopituitarism and prolactinoma. The latter of which I live with.
Why I love Depop
Oxfam states that: ‘Every week 11 million items of clothing end up in landfill. Throwaway fashion is putting increasing pressure on our planet and its people – it’s unsustainable.’
That number above is simply unimaginable. However at last, more than ever this year, I see people realising the sheer joy that can be found in thrifting and treasuring second-hand clothes.
It would mean so much to me if more than ever you could stop by the Depop collection of pretties I have set up with my Mum where we are raising money for a charity that helps me so much both physically and emotionally.
Terms and conditions
T&Cs: For all my UK buyers, there is a flat rate postage of £4. This includes 2nd Class Recorded Postage, eco-packaging that has been recycled from parcels I have had over the years. It is then £15 to my international buyers that includes tracking for peace of mind. All orders will come with a little surprise or two!
