About yesterdays post…

I thought I’d write a followup post to yesterdays. Yesterdays post was exactly how I was feeling in one moment of the day, well more than one actually, I woke up feeling that way. I felt like I was not really in the world, that I was noone and nothing and I could fade away.…… Continue reading About yesterdays post…

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

Reboot Day 79 – 81: The end of the week was a marked improvement on the beginning…

Day 79: Wednesday Wednesday was wierd. Not in terms of the exercise I did, but mentally wierd. I was still quite anxious, but feeling better than I thought I would. I had posted my “flamethrowers” post on Tuesday evening and I was feeling better because of the response I had already had from some friends…… Continue reading Reboot Day 79 – 81: The end of the week was a marked improvement on the beginning…

There will be flamethrowers!

In a short break from my normal blogging topics I thought I’d tell you about anxiety and how it relates to me. It is relevant really because a heath and fitness should refer to all aspects of health and fitness, and certainly all aspects that relate to the blogger!
