Wrestling and Depression Part 2 (The Shite Part)

Think I fuckin jinxed it. Since writing that piece a few months back speaking openly about my mental health issues and how wrestling played a huge part in overcoming them, I’ve hit a bad spell. As its World Mental Health Day tomorrow, I thought I’d jot some stuff down. A lot of people said nice things about the first thing I wrote on the subject, and I think a lot of that came from how ultimately positive it was despite talking about things that could be perceived as negative, so I worried about writing something that spoke more about the down side.

Tiny wee brain exhausted, so this is where the review stops. None of yer usual hunner million words. Its done. I’m oot. Retired at 25. Nothing left to give. We’ve had a good run and that eh? I enjoyed it. We all got sweaty together, and enjoyed shoutin in the direction of guys who could undoubtedly batter us, but I’m calling it. No even gonnae say what I decided on for MOTN tbh, it’s no important anymore. What’s important is that you take care of yourself, and those you hold dear. It’s only wrestling ye know? Continue reading
