Last week was my Birthday, it’s always a tough week as my Nan passed away a few hours before my Birthday several years ago, the first few years afterwards I didn’t celebrate at all, now I have sadness but try to enjoy it. At the beginning of last week was my last mindful photography[…]
I had been debating whether to attend LFCC 2018 or not, it’s a great event but funds are low (an entry ticket plus parking alone costs over £50), carers not always reliable and I’m not overly keen on Olympia as a venue accessibility wise. I eventually decided I’d buy parking as I could get that[…]
So my PA booked two weeks off, usually this would be a big problem for me as I’d miss out on getting up and going out, in the summer it’s even worse as not being able to get out in the sunshine sends me into very low moods. This time was different though, I’ve managed[…]
I have had a busy few weeks, I’m getting a lot better since my hospital stay, I’ve had a few anxiety issues and the start of a panic attack but that’s probably to be expected. My throat still feels very tight at times and there always that fear in the back of my mind that it will[…]
MCM Comiccon November 2017 was my first comiccon since hospital and I wasn’t sure if it would be too exhausting or if I would feel ill so I just booked one day and hoped for the best.
The reason I’m writing this now is twofold, firstly after giving my last mental health workshop I suddenly realised I hadn’t once been asked about my mental health during my recent hospital stay, and secondly a talk at the Action Duchenne International Conference I attended at the weekend. I have been working with a group[…]
So another year has passed, not the best year and being 42 I had hoped to find the answer to life, the universe and everything, instead I got locked in our new van for an hour on the way to a rubbish holiday at the beginning of the year and ended it being rushed to[…]
So Where Am I Now? I’m back at home and spent all of yesterday playing Wolfenstein: The Old Blood with my cousin on my brand new 55 inch TV, and today I intend to take the dogs on a short walk. Although I can’t manage too long in my wheelchair it’s still a long way from being in a hospital bed, so swollen I could barely move, with four drips attached to canulas in both my ankles!
I thought I’d post something lighter after the last two posts, I’ll hopefully do the final (for now) instalment of that soon. I have been transferring my DVD/Bluray collection to a media server so I don’t have to ask someone every time I want to watch a firm or TV show, during this I came across something I’d completely forgotten about, a DVD labelled Watching Warblers West.
The Next Few Days – Don’t Fear the Reaper After the first night in hospital I was exhausted, in pain and scared, but I would try my best to get through this, I wouldn’t give up. These few days may not be entirely accurate with the order things are in and may jump around a[…]
MCM Comic Con Birmingham was my first convention of the year, the convention tends to be smaller than the later ones with less A-list guests, it’s a good way of easing into the year for me.
