About 4 years ago I was experiencing a very low time in my life. I wasn’t happy. I was living abroad and feeling isolated from my loved ones. With no support from friends or family I realised I had to change something in my life, or I feared I would spiral into deep depression if I hadn’t already.
At the time I was a musician in a band. We had just signed a record contract and recorded an album. I suddenly lacked confidence and my performances suffered. Before long I was sacked from the band and to be honest as much as it was a disappointment to see my dreams crushed, it was a relief from the pressure I was feeling. Unfortunately I was still suffering. I think the pressures and the life-style I was leading had taken its toll on my mental wellbeing.
