    Darryn Hornblower

    Here is  the first episode of series two, and I promise you, it is a good one! Darryn has spent most of his life realising that things aren't right, but could never quite put his finger on it. From the start depression and anxiety have manifested inside of him in different ways, but it wasn't until he had a breakdown that he realised that he needed help. Darryn speaks honestly about his struggles with divorce, being a father and his suicide attempts and how he deals with them today . What a great episode to start a new chapter off with, I promise you it's worth a listen.
