I’ve been blogging for about a year and a half now. And one thing has become pretty obvious. The blogging community is not only different than social media, but it is also better. Here’s why: Bloggers are readers. Most writers are. I’m willing to bet almost anything that no matter how many WordPress bloggers you […]
Hey there internet people.
Been a while, have felt the need to withdraw from blogging for a week or two, to clarify what I want this blog to be and what I want to put in it, to be honest I still have little idea, which is why the subtitle of this blog is Random Musings of a Liverpool Loon, random seems to be as good an idea as any.
Life seems no easier than before, but then again, I suppose I do not expect it to be. After a week or more of the great reorganisation regarding my comics and graphic novels, I have started again to enjoy my hobby. Anyone with a collector in their lives know how they can do this grand reorganisation thing, losing themselves in the cataloguing and organising of their treasured items. The argument could be made that I have too many, but comic fandom is often described as a crippling addiction. (copyright Michael Bailey http://viewsfromthelongbox.blogspot.co.uk/)
I’ve found work so hard and demoralising recently, the stresses and pressures getting the best of me several times last week and low moods striking from time to time. It has been hard work just getting through some days, but the other way of seeing it is, I got through them. My wife (the Mighty Rosie) is struggling with her health at the moment, which is affecting her moods as well, my heart breaks because I can’t help her as much as I want to, nor can I find one of the problems in her work (the massive arsehole Mr JW) and express my feelings for how he has treated her with an iron bar. Well I can, but have been asked not to.
I am working hard to put a positive spin on things, not that it’s working all too well. But I keep going, because I can. I have come to the conclusion that since I don’t know what my life looks like without depression, since I have had issues my entire life it seems, I don’t know what ‘well’ looks like, so instead my goal should be to be at a point where I can live me life, solve problems as they arrive and restructure my life to make it more of a positive thing. Today, that’s as easy and as hard as getting through work without screaming obscenities at my line manager.
Today isn’t a good day, it doesn’t have to be.
Saturday morning, my son and I sat cuddled up on the big chair and watched s**t on YouTube.
I keep trying and will re-double my efforts to post more frequently, for me as much as anything else.
Ta ta for now
Stretch….Yawn…..Sigh…..here we are again loves – It’s Mullet Monday…..get that coffee in your system and get your daily dose of sarcasm right here. Be prepared for Monday’s speed bumps and have some witty shit to throw at people.
Been a hard week, really hard, too hard it feels at the moment.
Work’s a nightmare, family stuff as always and my wife (The Mighty Rosie)’s health worries and an unpleasant conversation or two in work. It’s easy to look at things and feel bad.
I know this, because that’s how I’ve been this week. I felt the demons that I spent 2016 trying to escape grabbing hold of me again and it was both terrifying and demoralising in equal measure. But I am ok. I’m not great, not good, not well, but ok. Last year, this would have been a backslide, but the way I see it, it’s been one bad week out of 20 or so, that’s not too bad is it?
Last weekend we bought a sofa, brand new and outright, a first for us without going to the cheap end, we are heading towards better things, but this week hit us both like a juggernaut. On the positives, one of the fears that me and the Mighty Rosie had has been put to rest, so on to the next thing and the next thing.
I don’t even know what I am writing about, but I want to say whilst I am wasting your time, to thank the larger internet community and the bloggers on here in particular, for your welcome and kindness. I am often disappointment by humanity as a whole, but my treatment on here and the support from other corners has been a bit of sunlight in a dark and gloomy sky.
Also, get Lego Marvel Superheroes, it’s awesome!
