Self description

Male , 25

I am a creative writing student. I love reading anything from Shakespeare to Harry Potter (I'm a big fan of the latter). As well as writing fiction.

I try and have a positive outlook on life, even at the worst possible times.

Life experiences


I am living proof that it is possible to come out the other side. I am a stronger and more accepting person despite (and maybe as a result) of relentless torment.

Epilepsy and Depression

I was diagnosed at 31/2yrs old. As I'm growing up I've found that things have become more of an issue - medication side effects and feelings of inadequacy. The combination of these things as well as the stress of life led me to a very dark place. It was hard but eventually I managed to move away from that dark place. It still gets to me sometimes but it doesn't rule my life. I've thrown myself into the things I love and have tried new things and found that as hard as life gets I'd like to be around to see how it turns out.

Sexual Assault

I managed to escape before I was technically raped so I felt that I had let it affect me too much. I was too afraid to press charges because my attacker was a corridor away from me. However, once I started talking to people about what was going on in my head. I found I could move on. Now, I'm in a happy/healthy relationship and am in control over my life.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
