The stories of Noggy Boggy

Thoughts from a God fearing TCK, struggling with mental illnesses


Hello team. My name is Aneurin Howorth (or Noggy Boggy as some know me). I am a Third Culture Kid who grew up in East Africa, has British parents, and now lives in Scotland. I struggle with mental illness and think we need to talk about it more.  Currently, I am studying a Msc in Psychology of Mental Health in Edinburgh.

The purpose of this blog is to help people by sharing stories, primarily about mental illness or being a Third Culture Kid (TCK). Stories resonate with people’s souls and are a great way to talk about these topics. Mental illnesses and Third Culture Kids need to be talked about more. I want people to try and understand what these things are like so that people don’t have to feel isolated by them.

I am still figuring things out and write things as I understand them and I will make mistakes. I rigorously ensure that everything I write is true, particularly when it comes to medical information or theology. Please let me know if I have made any mistakes!

Hopefully this is just the start of a conversation. Feel free to get in touch! 🙂

I am the one in the middle

  1. I am the father of a TCK/MK (29 yrs old) who has been suffering with mental health issues for the past 6-7 years. She has been undergoing various treatments including trauma counseling (diagnosed with PTSD). She is much improved the last 6 months and I am hopeful that she will soon be well enough to be independent.
