Hi I’m Nathan. On Sunday the 25th of April I’m running a Marathon around Halifax and surrounding areas to raise money for Andysman club as they have helped me massively in the last 3 months. I will be setting off from Savile Park at 10am and I plan to run it under 4 hours.. Please see my story below.
So it’s taken a lot to speak out about this but I know friends in football are going through the same as football is our life away from our real working jobs. I’ve struggled massive throughout the recent lockdown and In November and December I found myself drinking more and more each day without really giving a shit about the consequences and hid all off this from the people close to me.
On the 27th of December I sat contemplating taken my own life on a bridge in Halifax, the very same bridge I’ve sat and talked two people down from taken their own life.
The reason behind this is to plead with people to stop hiding behind a big fake smile. We need to ask for help or make sure we talk to people, they don’t have to be friends or family, sometimes its best to get things of your chest to people who have no input in your life #itsokaytotalk ❤️
