One year on


It was a year ago that my illness got the better of me. You all know what happened. I’m not proud. What I am proud of however, is how far I have come. So what have I done? Well, therapy got me so far, medication got me so far, friends and family got me so far. It was however me that got me to the place I am in right now.

Who am I?

Well, now I know exactly who I am. I am strong, I am free, I am me. I love my life right now, I’m in a very good place and it is staying this way. I know what I want in my life, I want a quiet life with no drama, no stress.

This time ….

…last year I was in a very dark place. Now I am pretty together, where I should be. My birthday last year was spent in bed, this year it was spent in London. I was happy. I have so much to live for right now, family, friends, new motorbike, and as for work………watch this space.


I’ve turned my life around, and you can too. Don’t be afraid to speak out, don’t be afraid to ask for help. And remember…… is beautiful…..

Hi, I’m Martin. 47 years old, living in Suffolk. I have three amazing grown up children. I have the best family and friends in the world. I am a football fan, love going to the gym and I am a motorcycle pilot. I’ve had mental health problems all of my life. This site is about my past, present and future. I’m hoping to make it easier for people to be able to speak freely about mental health. It can affect anyone at anytime.
