Now returning to reading John Lee's "At My Father's Wedding", which I found very difficult to start some 18 months ago when I was dealing with my own sense of self-loathing.

I'd like to hope this inspires me to do more about my passion for, in particular, men's mental health and emotional wellbeing. Maybe even start a local men's group. We'll have to see.
