Black Dog Moan…
Back in 2012, after my initial diagnosis, I started an anonymous blog. Some helpful fucker told me it would help so I called it Black Dog Moan, after a Sam Jackon movie, and fully intended to write regularly, detailing the ‘daily strugs’ of a comedian with depression and anxiety. As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, it didn’t last. I tried again in 2013 but was too far down to really make any sense of what I was going through. I was hardly in a position to help or inspire anyone else.
A few fellow comics tried to work out who was writing it (congrats, Suz) but, ultimately, it was all a storm in a coffee cup.
Anyway, I had a scrute recently and it’s still there. You’re welcome to have a read:
