My Depression and Anxiety Story

Daniel De Guia

I'm a dad, amateur fitness junkie, 3-time end of the world survivor, geek, writer, and gamer from Santa Rosa, California. The posts on this blog will chronicle my personal fitness journey, which I hope will motivate other fathers to take charge of their own health and fitness.

    Dan, thank you for this post. It’s powerful, and you’re courageous. “More often than not, men are left to cope with mental illness in silence with very little sense of hope or support.” This is the truth. Let’s change this. There is no shame in seeking professional help.

    Thank you for writing this. 77.9% of deaths from suicide by men absolutely blew me away. I couldn’t imagine being in a mental space where just staring off in to space alone could be such a relief. It was really eye opening to put myself in your shoes for that moment. At Mazu we believe in connecting dad’s from different families in a way that everyone can share. We went and created these online spaces where sharing can happen within and between families and dads just like you in a safe and caring environment. It’s great that you are writing about this, it is adding so much value to other men and families. Thank you and keep up the writing!
