I started recording monologues in August 2019 when I was going through some mental health issues, usually while I was out walking the dogs around Lamlash on the Isle of Arran. I decided to publish them for the sake of accountability and I found it incredibly helpful.
I was on meds for depression at the time and have been a recovering alcoholic and addict since 2005, so a lot of recovery stuff comes up too. I'm convinced that the root of my depression was the post office business that I'd been trying to sell since 2011. It did finally sell in October 2019, so you'll get to follow me through that and my subsequent business ideas and how I navigate that as a self-employed self starter with two teenaged kids.
