CALL OF THE WILD
A Scottish soldier who battled depression after returning to civilian life has retreated to the wilderness. Jamie ‘Wildman’ Frizzell’s story was captured by BBC Scotland’s documentary strand e Social, which showed the former squaddie taking to the woodlands of Southern Scotland.
“It all started when I got medically discharged from the Army,” Frizzell explains. “at change of having constant positive energy all around me, to being back in civilisation surrounded by negativity and a need for instant grati cation, really shook me. I started going out into the wild to get away from all the negativity that surrounds us in everyday life. Almost instantly I felt that positive energy again.”
