Greetings! :)

Hey folks, another newbie here! I'm Brushtail, been lurking on these forums for a couple of days and finally worked up the nerve to sign up and admit, for the first time in public, that I probably have a few MH issues that need sorted - the stoic stiff upper lip just isn't working any more!

I'm 34, so probably a bit older than most folks here, gave up a 10-year civil service career which was slowly driving me mad to become a freelance artist, simultaneously had what was probably a nervous breakdown (are they still called that any more?) decided I was invisible, cut contact with nearly everyone I knew and haven't really had any social contact IRL for about a year now. Time to change all that, though!

Hoping to get some good advice here, unwind and chat about MH stuff in a safe environment, maybe make new friends, and give advice wherever I can be helpful!

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Hi Brushtail. Hope you find this helpful - it's definitely a great start. Happy to PM more - especially around our mutual age thing :)

I freelance a lot,too, which is good because I get to be alone but can be bad too for the same reason.

Hope to see you around the boards!
