Opening up

Hello everyone who may have happened by here.  I’ve decided to create a blog to share my experiences with depression and anxiety which I have suffered with for years.  It won’t be all doom and gloom though!  I am looking to make some changes in my life and health.  For a start I need to lose weight.  I’ve gained lots over the years.  My doctor tells me that it is related to the depression which to some extent it is I guess. So, starting from today I am making a start, a proper start (I’ve tried before in a less than committed way) to lose weight and get fit.  I have been making some strides in the last weeks but nowhere near enough.

Time for a little background – I’m a programmer by trade and enjoy creating software to solve problems.  I think the order it brings to chaos is what attracts me to it now that I think about it.  I also love to play games.  Primarily RPG’s but I love a wide variety of games.  Currently playing Ghost Recon: Wildlands on the Xbox One and having a blast.  Admittedly it is much more fun when playing in a group.

I’ve been married since 2007 to my life long friend and soul mate Vicky.  She has stuck by me through all I could throw at her and deserves a medal at least!  We have a cat (Smudge) and a dog (Cleo) who are terrors but I love them.

That is all for now.

A new day, a new dawn, a new future.

  1. I support you fully Lee you need me you know where I am . I have been there and sometimes it comes back with a vengeance. Love you loads mam xxx

  2. It takes a lot of courage to open up about depression and anxiety, especially for a man. So you are already tougher and stronger than you probably give yourself credit for! Having battled depression myself I know how tough it is but it can be eased with a proper diet and something as simple as a few ten minute walks a day. You have a fantastic wife and I’m sure she will help you but you’ve also got friends and if you need anything from me, don’t hesitate to ask! Best wishes on your journey to happier mental health!

    • Thank you very much. I’m starting on the road I’ve barely travelled properly all these years. I am determined. If you need anything from me just ask too!

  3. You are a warrior bro. Well done for having the courage to do this, I know it’s not easy.

    Remember that I love you and will always be there to help. We don’t really talk much and I miss you both.

    Let’s get on a call xxx
