I had everything society taught me I needed to be successful in life - a promising career, great income, loving family and could holiday wherever I wanted. I had great mates and enjoyed life but inside I was broken. I knew it, but I couldn’t see it.
I escaped into a downward spiral of destruction on the back of a battle with major depressive disorder and gambling addiction that I hid not only from family and friends, but also myself. Gambling was the place I hid from my internal conflict, guilt, shame, ego and embarrassment and it nearly cost me everything. The longer it lasted, the more miserable I became and the deeper I hid.
I stopped hiding over 3 years ago and am proud to have reclaimed ownership of my decisions and actions. I have become an adventure and obstacle course race enthusiast, love playing sport with my son, listening to country music and being present with those that matter most to me.
I live in sunny Brisbane and enjoy hitting the beaches, getting out into the bush, and living the life I have earned. Life without limitations is an amazing place to live.
