I am a fifty-year-old Welshman from Cardiff, I am a published author of poetry and currently at the University of Gloucestershire.

I was diagnosed with mental health issues including anxiety and depression. This was finally acknowledged in 2010 though my difficulties started when I was in school.

Because I was a slow learner I was placed in the remedial class from 11-16 years old. I had to go to anger management counselling as I would get angry when not being able to understand. During my school life, I was bullied for many years.

It was found that I have more illness including dyspraxia and dyscalculia. I was even homeless for a while. I have been extremely low and contemplated ending it all on more than one occasion.

I felt that it would be a worthwhile thing for me to start my own blog, with the sole function of helping many of you cope with mental health. I will do my utmost to keep you updated on the latest mental health news but especially anxiety and depression. It is not easy trying to go it alone. I won’t sugarcoat it, and I will be very honest with you all.

In my leisure time, I like to read, watch football, study Buddhist Philosophy, write, and I am a vegetarian. It’s not easy to socialize when you have these issues. A lot of the time I stay in, but I have forced myself to face my Demons here in University.

YOU never have to suffer alone, shoot me a message and if I can help in any way I will.
