Today, October 15,  my daughter turns five. I will call her using my tablet, that’s our channel. I hope the tablet is turned on. If the tablet is on, I hope she hears it and is allowed to answer. It’s been like this since February. A period after which the terrible and sinister powers of … Continue reading A Birthday, an Alienated One

Roles Vs Labels

Recently I had the pleasure of guest writing for Men Tell Health which is an organisation that aids and supports men that are affected by mental health. As they state on their website if you're not a man or don't suffer with mental health issues that doesn't mean you're not welcome. Absolutely not. Maybe you're a … Continue reading Roles Vs Labels
