The beast broke through

Last Monday the beast broke through once again. I almost made it to a week though. Again, I broke down at my desk and had to leave. I went back to the doctors again and after a chat he doubled my dose and suggested I lose weight and get more exercise. It is hard to get more exercise as I feel so low all the time but I will push myself hard and make the effort. This weekend will be the first time I can walk Tyrion too so that will help me. As for losing weight, maybe when I start exercising more I will feel more motivated to stick to a plan.  Comfort eating is my weakness so when my mood improves so should my diet (in theory!) Since the new dose however, I am feeling more tired than usual. I have only doubled it since Thursday last week so perhaps …

Amazing weekend

It is hard to describe how I am feeling after the weekend. All I know is that I am so proud to have been part of it all. The atmosphere was amazing and the real sense of togetherness.

Walking, gaming, programming repeat

It has been a good weekend and even as I type that I cannot believe it is Sunday already! At least I am off work again tomorrow. I’ve been up between 7 and 8 every day going out for a walk or on the treadmill (admittedly Smudge is waking me up earlier than I intend every day though!) As you can see from the countdown to the left there are 13 days left until the event. My goal is to do it at least 5 times. If I can do that then I will be happy. A few months ago I signed up to the Planetary Society and then promptly forgot about it such is the way my brain works.  So when the post came yesterday with my free T-Shirt it was a pleasant surprise. I am now a member and I urge everyone to check it out. It will …
