Frankie - - REAL LIFE -

I grew up with a stut­ter, and as soon as I en­tered ado­les­cence, the so­cial stress of a speech im­ped­i­ment man­i­fested it­self as anx­i­ety and bouts of de­pres­sion. To stay on top of my men­tal health, I reg­u­larly ex­er­cise; so­cialise with good peo­ple; say yes to things that take me out of my com­fort zone; fo­cus on big­ger world is­sues out­side of my own 'bub­ble'; limit drink­ing al­co­hol to week­ends only; and en­sure I get lots of sleep.
