Hello team. My name is Aneurin Howorth (or Noggy Boggy as some know me). I am a Third Culture Kid who went to university in St Andrews, 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 partake in the suffering of mental health, depression, anxiety, and post-concussion syndrome.
The purpose of this blog (apart from helping me understand what is going a bit better) is to help people by sharing stories of what I struggle with, particularly depression 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, some of the time I refer to depression I could be referring to anxiety or other mental health problems. Apologies for the ambiguity, I am still figuring thing s out.
Hopefully this is just the start of a conversation, ignorance is never an ally.
