Who is this bloke?

Madman No More is me.

I am 32 years old, and have had a long history of being mentally ill, and being treated in psychiatric wards and in the community. If you met me, you would probably not know this, because it is only very recently I have been able to talk about these experiences.

Having never discussed any of these thoughts and experiences with anyone before, I am now going from one extreme to the other, and giving an account to anyone who wants to read it. I do not expect you to feel like you need to offer me advice or support. I already pay a very nice person to sit and listen to me once a week.

Feel free to leave a comment, and I hope that some of what I write may go towards making others feel that they are not alone.

You can also follow me on Twitter, or just look at my daily thoughts at @MadmanNoMore

    Thanks for sharing your deepest, darkest days. This will inspire, support and help others that feel alone, that they are the only people that go through this. I’m so happy for you that you’re on the winning side of this very difficult and long illness. You’re a star. I wish you every happiness with all you endeavour x

    Hi, I completely agree with Emily and think everyone who shares like this is really inspirational and is a major cog in breaking down the stigma associated with mental health. I’ll retweet! @ImproveQOL #IQOL
