It’s ok not to feel ok. Sometimes I can’t remember who I am, or which character I’m supposed to play. Sometimes the weight of being anything at all sits heavy in my chest, pinning me to the concrete killing floor of my own self doubt. Sometimes the relentless self pitying makes me sick to the stomach. Sometimes it’s too much effort to pretend to care. Sometimes I hide away. But it’s ok not to feel ok.

I started writing in summer 2017 as a way to process my emotions and provide an outlet for the thoughts and feelings that would otherwise stay locked inside. Natural history and mental health are my main sources of inspiration. Check out my Instagram (thomasjdocker) or look me up on Facebook (Thomas J Docker) for updates about my writing.
