Thanks for coming by. My name is Matthew. I am 35 years old, and this is my blog.

The things you read here, are all true, and they are all from my mind. I spent close to 13 years working as a medic. I was an army medic for 6 years, and after my time in the army was finished, I became a paramedic for a busy city ambulance service. Most of what I write comes from these experiences.

I have been diagnosed with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and major depressive disorder. I started writing this blog because I was going crazy I think. Wanting to shout but not knowing how to do so. Not knowing where to direct it.

I am early in me recovery and so, most of what you read here will likely be dark and bleak. Hopefully with hints of hope and the occasional silver lining. We’ll see…
