Me, Depression and Recovery 

A few days ago I was talking to somebody who shall remain nameless, but they were having difficulty dealing with life and feeling down. It made think about my own life when I was depressed and when I found everyday totally exhausting. It prompted me to write this post about this period of my life.

About 15 years ago I suffered from depression. It… [Read More]

Dealing with Midlife Confidence Problems? You’re Not Alone.

Pixabay Many people call it the midlife crisis. It’s a period of doubt and anxiety that often affects people who are in their forties or fifties. We’re going to be focusing a little bit more on the male side of things here (this is a daddy blog, after all!), but it’s important not to see this as exclusively a male issue, as many people do. Both women and men have doubts in their “mid years” that can cause serious problems with their confidence. It’s also important not to use the helpful term “midlife crisis” as a means of brushing these… [Read More]

Men in general take very little notice of their health and well being. I’m sure we have inherited this from our youth. For me personally I was oblivious to health and fitness in my 20’s, but as I have got older I have discovered I’m not indestructible and the human body just like a car wears out. At the start of a new… [Read More]

Infertility is not just a woman’s issue

Sperm Check Fertility Test

As many people who read my blog know, my wife and I had IVF to conceive to our twins. Like others who go down the route of IVF, a lot of the focus is on the woman. You see society puts pressure on women when it comes to fertility issues, but did you know that studies show men contribute to 50% of infertility cases. The misconception that men don’t have a ‘biological clock’ is simply untrue. Yes, you get exceptions like Billy Joel for example who had a child aged 66, but that’s not the norm. Male fertility requires men… [Read More]
