I feel like I am nothing

I sit here broken. I am smashed. I am shattered. I am pieces held together by will power and trousers. The slightest knock would leave me scattered on the floor, ready to fade away. I am nothing. I am no-one. I have no-one I am desperately shouting to make people notice, to make people remember, to…… Continue reading I feel like I am nothing

About that detox…

I wrote this post several years ago, but in light of the fact that I have seen several posts recently about detoxes and cleanses and the like, I thought it was worth reposting… Dear the world, Trust your kidneys, and your liver. In general, trust your body’s mechanism for removing waste products and toxins from…… Continue reading About that detox…

Things not to say to another human… (part 1)

Honestly there are a lot of things not to say to another human. I probably can’t list them all. Things like “oooh that looks like you have an alien living inside you” to people who show you their pregnancy ultrasounds (yes I have said that) comparing babies to parasites is also a no-no… I am…… Continue reading Things not to say to another human… (part 1)

Never let a hot dog dictate your mood!

Its good advice…you know it is! There might be some as yet undefined circumstances where a person’s mood can be profoundly effected by a sausage inna bun* but in general, no. Ok this post isn’t just an elaborate ruse to get (yet another) discworld reference in, I promise! I do have a point. Recently I…… Continue reading Never let a hot dog dictate your mood!

Food glorious food

Apparently a little bit of what you fancy does you good, but you can have too much of a good thing… This is certainly true if you are me and we are talking about food! Unfortunately I go through periods of being unable to spot “too much” until it is but a distant signpost barely…… Continue reading Food glorious food

The other side of health…

I talk a lot on here about exercise and physical health. As I started writing this on World Mental Health day it seemed only right that I talk a little about some other aspects of health. I have spoken before about my anxiety (there will be flamethrowers) I am pleased to say that it is nothing…… Continue reading The other side of health…

Reboot day 91-97: Week of running…

Well…not only running, but there is a high proportion of running. To be exact 5/10 workouts from the last 7 days have been running. I suppose in reality that isn’t a high proportion, is just 50% but it is a lot for me… However, 3 runs in 3 days on top of the last two…… Continue reading Reboot day 91-97: Week of running…
