Clarke Carlisle Admits That His Accident Was a Suicide Attempt!

Many of my regular readers will be aware that I suffer from depression.  Did you also know that today there is a campaign highlighting the effects of mental illness and the effects it can have.  All too often this awful illness ends in suicide to attempted suicide.  I applaud Clarke Carlisle for speaking out.  Please read his story and share it.

Three days before Christmas, soccer star Clarke Carlisle was hospitalized after being hit by a truck. On December 22 The Mail revealed that the retired soccer star and TV pundit had been critically injured when he was hit by the truck on a road near York, England. The 35-year-old married father of two had to be airlifted to hospital. Carlisle, who played for nine clubs and was a players’ union boss, suffered serious head injuries and was in a coma for a month.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
