Just came back from Goldy,caught up with an old Tiger mate who had enough of Melbourne’s weather and lives up there,6 dollar schooners at the Northcliffe Surf Club,not bad.I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) at the age of 12 ... I’m now almost 45
Over the past few months, I have been really struggling with my mental health - depression, anxiety, panic attacks ... this has affected my job & family
3 weeks ago, my best friend of over 20 years went missing ... a couple of days later, his body was found in his car in a river ... we are still waiting for the coroner to release the body so that a funeral can be held
I had the opportunity to see the Tiges train on the Gold Coast last week (moved up here from Melbourne nearly 2 years ago) ... it was a brief bright spot during a very difficult time in my life ... RFC means a lot to all of us - I lived through 35 years of us being a joke but the last 3 years have been f...ing amazing
He loves his union ,played it and coached it at an elite level but told me he really has a regret about not going hard in Aussie Rules and playing for Richmond,born and bred in Tigerland,his uncle is Bill Durham,nice to catch up in Goldy Phil.
P.S, sh*t myself going backwards on the DC Rivals coaster.
