Year update

Yes I know it has been a while, but I have all sorts of things going on taking my mind away from the daily update.  I will endeavour to catch up over the next few weeks as I explore the reasons for "dropping the ball" and a lot is to be revealed!

A good year – 2018 – day 179

Work from home.  Weight 106.7 kg. Felt very stressed from the night before trying to answer emails and the like. I started work and didn’t feel right. I soldiered on.  Things happened which I really regret, taking the wrong choices and now have to bear the consequences of those choices. It was also a time … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 179

A good year – 2018 – day 150

Day to work from home. Woke later and was feeling refreshed.  Then had breakfast and started up the work computer and got stuck into the tasks for the day.  These tasks took time and the day sped by. Before I knew it, it was time for lunch. The budgies in our care carried on so … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 150

As I was getting ready for work, the past week was in my thoughts. Am I ready for the next step? Should I actually progress the next step? My timidity was kicking in, mixed with a bit of anxiety. When I get to work will discuss with the one person who has an impact on … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 124

Woke with the alarm. I feel alive! Ready for work and accompanied daughter no.2 on the bus and train to South Bank. Went into "Woolies" and bought lunch supplements and gave daughter no. 2 some cash. We then parted company and I walked to work, via the Goodwill Bridge.  It was good to be back at … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 117

The hardest day – day 113

Woke up this morning a bit apprehensive but I have to do this! Once ready, and I didn't think I would make it to the bus - fight or flight kicking in - avoidance... As the bus arrived at the station the response was getting stronger... I alighted from the bus and walked over to … Continue reading The hardest day – day 113

A good year – 2018 – day 111

Woke at 3.30 am, after being disturbed by my wife coming to bed at that time. Had stomach cramps, and dry mouth, along with my sore back.  Went to the lounge room and put in the television. Don’t know why! There was garbage on. Played my two usual games on my iPhone - “Gummy Drop” … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 111
