Steven has suffered from bouts of depression for a large part of his life. He has been diagnosed in recent years with COPD, type 2 diabetes, and vascular disease.
He believes that this susceptibility to mental illness has probably led to a lifestyle that contributed to his subsequent problems.
Steven is keen to share his thoughts and experiences of living with multiple chronic conditions with others in the same situation. He hopes Life Effects readers will benefit from his work and that his words bring them comfort.
