Nothing to say this week…

I have nothing really to say this week as I’m building up to a big rant about how my education has affected my mental health. I have been exploring this with my therapist and I’ve been working on a post for the last week. I’m otherwise well and will to be popping over to Wale…

Suffering from FailPlan2020

During the last week, I’ve been dealing with prep for a major demonstration/meeting at work as well as the changes to my commute inflicted by RailPlan2020. I would hesitate to call it a plan, very little seemed to have been communicated to station staff, train drivers and commuters alike. Since the start of the new…

My first week without Facebook

Last week I made the decision to stop using Facebook. It was negatively affecting my mental health. So far, its been surprisingly easy. I have caught myself searching for the app, I’ve certainly been tempted, but I’ve managed to keep myself away from it. One thing I noticed during the week was how frequently I…

Bye Bye Facebook

I discussed coming off facebook with a mate over the weekend and decided it’s worth trying. I know that there is a lot of talk about the harmful effects of social media these days, I did not even start to think about how it might be affecting me. So, as of yesterday afternoon I have…

Well things have not been so good…

I’ve not been in a “good place” for a fair while. For me, life is an inescapable, long, lonely, slow trudge towards a meaningless end. Ultimately whatever we do is spectacularly pointless. So, I think I need to take a break from Facebook for an undefined period. I’m still considering if I should post this…

[Diet Update] Not the worst of weeks, not the best.

Something is going on at work which I can’t talk about yet. It has been consuming my thoughts recently. All good, but it distracted me from the blog. Apologies. I’ve lost another Kilo, despite a diet hiccup on Friday when post-work drinks led to some junk food being devoured. Being hungry and drunk isn’t an ideal…

My First Personal Training Session in Four Years

As I might say if I still lived in Yorkshire; “un t’ things ‘a’ worried uz on uz journey back ta physical ‘n mental ‘ealth wor if uz body chuffin’ ‘ood be capable o’ doin wha’ it used ta be able ta doa int’ gym.“ Or, to put it another way… One the things that worried…

Back to the track

The latter part of 2017 wasn’t fun. Shortly after starting the anti-anxiety medication I had a bad experience with a new GP. If you find a good GP, don’t move, even if you have to travel to see them. I was described as a drug addict by the new GP and refused a new prescription…

Taking Time Out

Friday I suppose you could say that this weekend, I’m taking time out. I’m off to see the family for a couple of days. Oddly, at the moment, its the most socially active thing I do each month, but somehow it feels like timeout, no cooking, no shopping, just winding my niece up. It will…

Fuzzy, Blurry, Calm

Its nearly been a week since I added an anti-anxiety medication into the mix. All seems to be going OK. I’m not a fan of the fuzzy, blurred feeling I get but I am enjoying how relaxed I actually feel. I had forgotten what being really relaxed felt like. It’s nice. I started off on a…
