this is a hard time for some, but there are people who will & want to help us cope with depression, anxiety and loneliness, reaching out is difficult I know, but there is genuine people out there who care. I have been lucky enough to receive some help in the past.

 I wish you well in the New Year,

So...this is a bit gross so you are warned! My Christmas story, for quite a few years I've had scar tissue on the left side of my jawbone, it is a lump of it and really annoying. I have asked civilian and military medical staff about it as it gets sore and been told nothing can do, it is just scar tissue (I have plenty of other scar tissue and it is unlike this). Last night it was sore again, so I decided to operate! so with a pair of nail scissors I got stuck in, out came two large slivers of bone, and also dug further and popped a cyst or something and loads of gross stuff came out and the large "scar lump" has gone.

Hello, all
I have not been updating as everything has overwhelmed me lately, the injuries,illness lack of being able to do positives, has mean't I have let things spiral downwards and ended up in a bad place with depression and anxiety.

I am trying focus on some reading that can help me and get out with the dog, as my achilles is still painful and to add to it my old back injury is worse at the moment too, this is making any exercise difficult and I am struggling. I want to get out on the hills and running, as I am losing my confidence and fitness which is worrying me and not helping anxiety.

I wish this was a more positive post and really hope my next one will be better.

Well my inner ear seems to finally be on the mend! so hopefully can get out a bit more instead of just dog walks(the dog walks will still happen, Alfie the dog will not be neglected).

I also was lucky enough to receive a Dragons egg Bivvy bag from Highlander, so looking forward to getting out and using that too!

hope this finds everyone well

another hurdle...

Hi not posted for a while as been quite ill, the ear infection i was suffering with turned into a worse infection. The infection has turned out to be something called mastoiditis, it is an infection in a bone behind the ear, the Doctors have had me on few different antibiotics and now seems to be working against it, so hopefully be better soon.

hope this finds all well, and happy too!
