The stories of Noggy Boggy

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


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.

  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.
