My name is Simon Fowler. I'm an Australian university student, studying computer science at the Australian National University in Canberra, the national capital.
I'm 22 years old, a Linux fanatic, a cricket fanatic, I hate John Howard, I think most of the world is some combination of insane, stupid, badly organised, or just plain dumb. This makes me a fairly typical Australian uni student . . .
I suspect that anyone who has suffered from depression or a related illness would have a long, long story to tell about their experiences. I certainly fit that description - I've suffered from anxiety for as long as I or my family can remember, and from depression since around age fifteen. I've been trying to do something about it for about three years, and I've reached a point where most of my problems are dealt with. This site is an attempt to help other people reach that point - I don't want anyone else to go through the hell I have, and the only way I know of to achieve that is to help people understand what's happening.
