‘There’s exercise, and therapy, and medication, and a lot of different things that have to be maintained for me to maintain my health. 

‘And I’m doing those things and some days are better than others, but life is beautiful and most of the time I am able to really enjoy and embrace that,’ she added. 

In an interview with the Gold Coast Bulletin in October, she explained she’d been ‘really unwell’ when she checked into a mental health facility for five weeks in February 2020.

‘I could not find a single grain of energy or joy or anything. I was so worn down and I was physically really, really unwell,’ she said.

Julie called her time in hospital was ‘very humbling’ and said: ‘the people that were surrounding me (in hospital) were just really beautiful people and everyone had their own struggles in their own way.’

Good days and bad days: She said, 'I'm doing those things and some days are better than others, but life is beautiful and most of the time I am able to really enjoy and embrace that'
