She has started a new career, fallen in love with partner Ryan, 33, and is winning her battle against PTSD after undergoing integral eye movement therapy.
Amy added: “I spent 22 years dealing with unprocessed trauma, 22 years of living in a state. But now I feel amazing and I’ve got so much to look forward to in my life.
I’m so secure and loved and happy. I’ve got everything I could wish for.”
Give Birth A Child
She is also looking forward to the birth of her first child, a daughter, next month.
Amy said: “She is actually due on March 13, it’s a crazy world. There’s no saying she will arrive then but just that being my due date is very special.
There will never be anything that takes away from the pain of people who lost loved ones at Dunblane.
“But for me, her birth means happiness and something beautiful can come out of that day.”
