Im battling hard at the moment, but I’m staying positive as I trust the process. Looking back today on how far I’ve come. Here’s two pictures of what depression looks like.
On the left I’m overweight – I was younger, unsure of what was happening; I turned to food and occasionally drink to fight the storm. Life was tough; I was clueless about OCD, mental health, anxiety and had no real way of life or hope for the future!
On the right is me today- I’m just about in control. I believe in myself. I love stronger. I’m a better man. I struggle most days, but I’m hopeful for the future. I’m fitter, healthier, mentally stronger. I have great support, great family, great friends. I’m eternally grateful to everyone who’s helped me so far.
Depression is horrible, OCD is brutal, anxiety is painful. But I get up every day and I WIN. Life is so tough, but I know I’m strong enough to cope. Just over two years ago running handed me a lifeline; I ran with it!
We keep on going!
