Radio Silence

It has been a little while since I posted so I apologise for the “radio silence.” I’ve had another rough few days. The problem being that writing these posts helps me to come out of it but when I am in it I don’t have the energy to push myself. Therein lies the eternal struggle brought on by the Black Dog of depression. This weekend is going to be a big weekend.  I have no illusions that I will not be able to complete the whole challenge or maybe not even half but I will be damned if I go down without a fight.

My family has also suffered this week but it is not my place to post about that here. I am tired all the time but I know that is just the side effects of the “black dog” raising its head. Getting more and more sleep never helps. Sure it feels good at the time but as soon as I wake up my brain goes back into overdrive. However, I have decided to throw my hat back into the ring of Android app development which I have been thinking about for a while. I am quite looking forward to making a start. I am still working on ideas for the app and will reveal all after the weekend when I’ve gotten …
