The stories of Noggy Boggy

Thoughts from a God fearing TCK struggling with mental illnesses- Aneurin Howorth

About

Hello team. My name is Aneurin Howorth (or Noggy Boggy as some know me). I am a Third Culture Kid who lives in Scotland but grew up in East Africa. Unfortunately I support Newcastle United, but enjoy other sports too. If you have any questions about the posts or anything get in touch! I have a history of depression, anxiety and was recently diagnosed with a dissosciative disorder. I think we need to talk about these things. I have just finished a masters in psychology of mental health at Edinburgh University and am now working for a christian charity called the Navigators in Edinburgh.

The purpose of this blog (apart from helping me understand what is going a bit better) is to help people by sharing stories, particularly about mental health and being a TCK. I want people to try and understand what these things are like so that they don’t have to feel¬† isolated and so that they can help other people who struggle with them. Just a wee disclaimer, I try my best to get everything right. If you disagree or want to correct me, please do! I need all the help I can get

Hopefully this is just the start of a conversation, ignorance is never an ally.

Also, I am a lot older now than I was when that photo was taken!

  1. I am the father of a TCK/MK (29 yrs old) who has been suffering with mental health issues for the past 6-7 years. She has been undergoing various treatments including trauma counseling (diagnosed with PTSD). She is much improved the last 6 months and I am hopeful that she will soon be well enough to be independent.
