I am a thirty year old man, married to the woman that I have been with since I was 18. That woman has suffered with depression probably for as long as I have known her, but certainly for 8 or more of the last 12 years. That condition, and the effect that it has on our lives, has an influence on everything I do, every decision I make, and every aspect of my life. But we no longer allow it to take over, or to dominate the life that we have together.
As well as a husband, I am a Sales Director for a successful IT company. My job is a key part of me for many reasons, not least because it has been an outlet for the parts of my personality that I can't bring home and a hiding place from some of the things that I would otherwise be going home to. I'm not ashamed to admit that I have hidden from them and I imagine that to a degree, I always will, but I hope that my job will always be much more to me than that and that my career will always be something that I can be proud of.
My life would be something completely different without our dog. We changed a lot of things just to have him in our lives, and in return he has changed everything for us. The single biggest contributor in my eyes to my wife regaining control of her life, there are so many reasons why I consider my dog to be one of the three things that make my life what it is today. Hopefully, he will add something a little more light-hearted to my blog, and be the something that makes people smile on this site.
