I know this sounds a little morbid and I guess it is. But I was watching a film last week (thank you Mr Pool) and this phrase was said and immediately I understood what they were talking about. I think I have written previously about wanting to do everything now and I think this has … Continue reading We can’t really live till we’ve died a little
Feel the fear 😱
In my previous life I wasn't very adventurous, I was very scared to do most things. It was much easier to shut myself away and not do much. I look back now and think that I have just wasted that part of my life. That is not entirely true though as my counsellor keeps reminding … Continue reading Feel the fear 😱
Recently there have been a few things that I have done that remind me that I am different now. When these things happen I don’t get as confused as I did in the beginning but they help to remind me that there are many things that I still need to improve. I understand that I … Continue reading Maths problem
Last year I did a podcast with two men from Headway and last week it was released. I was a bit worried as I thought that I would sound a bit strange but when I listened to it I think I think I sound OK. I also thought that I was a bit too honest … Continue reading Podcast
Is acceptance giving up?
I didn’t really think about this until a couple of months ago when I heard someone saying it.

I saw my Aunt last year which was the first time I had seen her after I was ill. We gave each other a big hug and she called me a wonder woman. It felt really weird that she said this to me, but quite proud to be thought of in this way. I have … Continue reading Wonder women
Be grateful, it could have been a lot worse
I have been thinking about this for a while now. I know it must seem like I moan about things quite frequently and I do. I guess I have a lot to moan about. As everything is different now and I am encountering new things all the time it is natural to not like some … Continue reading Be grateful, it could have been a lot worse
Climbing Mount Everest ⛰
This is just a metaphor, I have never thought of actually climbing Mount Everest. That would be a challenge. My recovery over the last four years has been challenging and I could look at it as climbing to the peak of a mountain. Four years ago when I woke up from my coma I was … Continue reading Climbing Mount Everest ⛰
