About Fred

Fred is a male thirtysomething struggling with depression, among other things.  He has been fighting that particular fight for over a decade, and despite periods wherein he came very close to actual suicide, he is still among the living.  As suggested by the name of the blog, he is also a genius— for what it’s worth. A bit more discussion as to just why that latter point is significant can be found in the first post.

Some readers of this blog may decide that they want to discover the identity of Fred.  Please do not pursue this course.  This blog is highly personal, and as a therapeutic release may just keep him alive a bit longer.  Exposure of his identity would almost certainly be devastating.  Just leave it alone.

Also, in the interests of privacy, names, relationships, and other details are frequently changed when talking about people or past events.
