There are worse things than being lost….

I wasn’t lost, I was just wandering…. It has been a while since my last blog post, several months it seems…. I was taking a mental health break, well I was having a break and mental health was involved… I am not sure I have everyone in the right order as things got a little foggy at points, but the salient points seem to be –

  • Gave up smoking for several months, fell off wagon for a few weeks, climbed back on wagon and currently still there…
  • Quit antidepressants against doctors orders in a cold turkey situation, turned out to be a very bad idea, actually a note writing, looking for a strong rafter bad…
  • Quit antidepressants in a more measured way, still against doctors advice but with a plan downloaded from the internet..
  • Had my heart broken one last time, and then had it medically removed to solve all such future problems
  • Enrolled children in the school of my choice…
  • Decided all change is external, therefore anything I need to achieve has to be motivated by change from outside my rather scrambled head…
  • Stopped seeing my psychologist (or how I learned to love the bomb)…
  • Made steps towards being the parent I need to be…
  • Burned a few bridges…
  • Ate too many pies…
  • and most importantly read a few hundred books, those papery things with words in…

So why am I back? Because all change is external…. Bills… Health… Houses… Schools… Money… All these things are external influences and events…. A blog is just my reaction to all that, so maybe I need a record again to keep things straight in my own head…

So that is the catch-up, back story, etcetera etcetera and so-on…. So on with the year, it should be an interesting ride….
