About me and about this blog
I am in my 50’s and live in England. I have been married to My Beautiful Armenian (MBA) for 27 years. We have three children – the Big Boy Wonder (BBW) who is in his early 20’s, the Very Precious Daughter (VPD) and the Small Boy Wonder (SBW) who is a teenager. This blog is about 2 things:
- the experience of being married to somebody going through the life-changing experience of training to be a pyschotherapist.
- some reflections about a number of issues we have faced over the years – having a gay son; anorexia; depression; miscarriage; bullying; teenage issues with drugs and alcohol; supporting kids through university.
The list sounds like a catalogue of misery and doom, but that’s not how I feel about them. I’m a very private person and many people who know me would probably describe me as laid-back and cheerful. I hope that you won’t come across any self-pity in these pieces, because it’s not an appealing characteristic and it’s not how I feel. I am, in fact, very lucky and aware of this.
I’m certainly not intending to offer advice. But if anyone were to find anything I write here of interest or of comfort, that would be very satisfying to me.
And because I won’t be able to help myself, there will probably also be some occasional reflections on books, music, film, and cooking.
