Solo mental health check-in

Welcome to the Stupid Hearts Club! The Club for everyone with a Stupid Heart


Hello loves.

I decided to record a solo one this week just cos I have caught myself feeling happier lately and think I should put that into context for anyone struggling at the moment, having been seriously depressed earlier in the year myself. I hope it helps some of you to hear someone wanging on about recovery and stuff. All I can say is, whoever you are, I care, we care and other people very probably care too so whatever you are going through don't go through it alone- And I hope you take this episode as actual evidence that even the very dark times can and WILL pass, often in just a few eggy months. After which you will not recognise what your brain was bowling at you when it was poorly. If I can do it, so can you baby.

Going to put the tune at the end up on it's own and maybe a couple of others if that is of interest as wee bonus bits.

Also the 'Childs Game' conversation from Matt's pod is coming later as a cheery Brucie Bonus after this more serious episode.

Big love

Lady Maam'alade

PS - I have uploaded a photo of the symptoms 'diary' I made as I tried to get through the month I was told was still to go with major withdrawal symptoms- It really helped being able tick it off every night without having to remember it all again. I just picked up the pad at teatime and ticked or crossed how the last day had been until after a month I could see I was sleeping and eating better and doing okay.

About the Podcast

Stupid Hearts Club
Everyone with a stupid heart is welcome here!
I'm Nico. Welcome to the Stupid Hearts Club Podcast. Allow me tell you a little about the show....

In Summer 2021 after having such lovely feedback from Matt Morgans gorgeous Patrons I decided to start my very own podcast. It started out exclusively here on Patreon, but now it's out in the wild for everyone to hear! I initially called it GSOH and I (usually) delivered one podcast per week. It has become a really cool thing in my life and my community of patrons are legends who give lots of me ace feedback and love. And it helps me support my creative endeavours during the peaks and troughs of the TV comedy world, (script writing is my main 'job').

Since then I have doing lots of music with the name Stupid Hearts Club, and as I am going to be out and about trying to pull people into enjoying all of 'my stuff' I thought I would re-brand (puke) my podcast as Stupid Hearts Club too in the hope of pulling in the odd new listener. Is that YOU? If so Hello, come in, sit down.

You might be wondering what having a 'Stupid Heart' is. Well it can mean many things. It might mean you have a silly sense of humour, and like titting about and being naughty. (which is what this show is) It might mean that you are a hopeless romantic fool despite all the terrible evidence that love is a cruel joke that pokes you in your stupid heart (which is what all my songs are). Either way everyone with a stupid heart is welcome here.

The podcast itself will still be me having a laugh with another person I have met along the way, whether they are funny, interesting, daft, or just plain adorable. But I won't just chat to comedy people anymore. And I will *usually* put a little Stupid Hearts Club tune or cover at the end of the episode.

I'll shut up now. But whatever you are here for, thanks for coming along!

Stupid Hearts Club Forever Baby!
