3rd day in

Well I’m into the third day off and my mind is starting to unwind fully. Great couple of days just chilling and generally not doing much. Just what the doctor ordered. Vick and I went to spend some time with Andrew and Sheryl in the hot tub.  It eased her pain quite a bit so thank you very much both!  I also went out stargazing with Andrew and luckily it was a really clear night.  We got to see the moon in a lot of detail and a planet which we couldn’t identify due to equipment issues.  It was an amazing experience and we are looking to do it again someplace higher up when the full hits. Today I will be more productive. There are a number of things I need to get done and some jobs I’ve been putting off.  Time to get on the case.

When it came to Sunday evening though, the clouds started to return. I really need to find some …

A few weeks ago, maybe longer I don’t know, I’ve been constantly looking on the negative side of everything. My moods have been erratic.  This has even spilled over into places it never has before.  I can normally contain it and control it but lately I haven’t been able to. This past week has been as bad as I can remember. This is despite positive things happening. That sounds weird right? I know you are probably thinking “How can he be overwhelmingly depressed when good things are happening?”  I wish I knew. I’ve joined a few support groups to try to open up more and maybe get another perspective on my illness (I’ve just realised this is the first time …
