In light of Mental Health awareness day. Here’s my story.

It’s easy to say that my ending up a Birmingham City supporter wasn’t clear cut. I wasn’t born into it. My dad wasn’t a Bluenose, nor does he even watch Football. I don’t live in Birmingham, not even the UK. And City aren’t even the first club I tried following, heck it was the nth. You see choosing a club while being diagnosed with ADD and OCD is nearly impossible. I’d follow a handful of clubs at different times, for various reasons. I’d convince myself that I’ve found the right club for me and in order to feel like a true supporter I’d buy kits, stadium bricks, joined trusts, posted on blogs, all of it. Being extremely impulsive, indecisive and obsessive really hampered me from choosing a club to support. Enter Peaky Blinders.

Okay... So I ended up really getting into the show. I freaking loved it. Naturally I got interested in following the Blues. I was on and off for a couple of years obviously because of my illness. But eventually I really couldn’t see myself supporting any other club. My son also loves the Blues as well.

I’ve heard it said that you don’t choose a club it chooses you. This has to be true. Cause I couldn’t choose. But thankfully I feel like I was finally chosen. KRO

Welcome to the Blues although I am not sure that following Blues is good for anyone's health.

Quite how I have made it to 50 without having a heart attack, nervous breakdown or drinking problems following the Blues is anyone's guess.
