Regular readers of this blog will be aware of my insecurities as a dad, and that I often consider myself not good enough.
They will know that I have, at times, found it difficult to relate to my son.
Well now I know why…
I was recently diagnosed with depression, which it turns out I have been managing in one way or another for at least the last ten years, and probably even more.
Now I get the chance – through appropriate medication, counselling and support from family and friends – to get my life back on track.
It’s started already – making a conscious effort to get some daddy and boy time, even when I don’t feel like it.
With help I will get through this.
