The Final Solution

We are explorers of the mind …….

I arrived late

I arrived late

Better late than never as the saying goes.

Basically I’ve been busy all evening here and this is the first chance to tell you that.

I’ve had a great evening, really, and a lovely change to my usual to be honest.

As I lay here in my bed all I can feel is the raspy scratching of my throat and that heady feeling when you know damn well you are about to get ill.

So maybe if like my avatar I could leap out of the moment, believe me I would.

Goodnight.

Halloween, I’m over it .

Halloween, I’m over it .

Ok so I’m over it already.

I  spent £3 on cakes that usually cost no more than £1.80. Seriously what the devils!

I thought I’d buy Halloween cakes for the little dude when he knocks and the box was all impressive Halloween style.

I open it up and there is nothing halloween about those cakes at all. I paid for a cardboard box!

Sadly he couldn’t come knocking due to a huge traffic accident.

So we will live the scare moment on Saturday instead. I will let him see me before I brush my hair, that should do it!

How I feel right now

How I feel right now

So basically it’s like this.

I have been on medication for nearly two weeks that has messed up my current life.

I’ve tried taking it both at night and in the morning and Christ I am like a walking corpse right now. I have not had any sleep for 3 nights now and I’m functioning on I’m not sure what.

I’m ready to bite heads off but at the same time want to sit and rock the day away in a corner.

So what are the pros and cons for me personally taking Duloxetine!

No pain….but no sleep

No pain ….constant lethargy

No pain ….no appetite

No pain ….more sweating

No pain…..feeling agitated

No pain ….mouth tastes like sh*t

So the pluses? No pain oh and no appetite.

The doctor called me and wants me off the tablet immediately. Oh and warned me I may experience the next few days the withdrawal. Jolly good.

On the plus side more drugs waiting for me at the chemist to pick up.

At this rate I’ll have kept these drug companies in business a bit longer.

So yep this picture depicts how I am feeling right now.

Into the wilderness

Into the wilderness

I’m supposed to be asleep right now but my head is full of stuff.

You know when you have a million things going on in your head and you don’t know which one to sort out first? That be me right now.

If I could I’d get my spear and head off into the wilderness. I’m sure there is a place called sanctuary somewhere out there.

I need to find it.

Woke up threw up and came back to bed. That’s all I’m saying. The video was done clearly before I felt this way but then consider that good as well you wouldn’t have wanted to listen to that.

Goodnight again .

My birthday

My birthday

I’ve just woken up and really want to go back to sleep.

It’s the one day of the year I look forward to a lazy lay in bed and as always awake at the drop of a pin.

So lay here I shall and insist on some laziness for at least another hour.

I do love a dance video so maybe I’ll lay here and instead dance in my bed? Happy Sunday everyone .

The first part of my celebration of being yet another year closer to the nursing home….

What happens in 2015 should be remembered

What happens in 2015 should be remembered

Despite the outward faces of many.

Faces of resilience, strength bravado, the truth is that many of us suffer silently in our dark moments and only the few around us will know those moments.

I am currently within my dark time and struggling to surpass this.

There are many reasons for the darkness. The most real one is work. The struggle to walk in each day and smile at the people who make many of our lives difficult.

I guess mine is compounded by the fact that I know it’s not all in my head because of the role I do as a union representative.

I face those managers who behave like non humans to their employees and I first hand see the manipulations of situations and the effects these have on staff.

You see from my perspective as both a participant and a spectator, going to work in an environment of toxicity is certainly one of the most damaging and dangerous positions many people face each day. The destruction of a person within a toxic work environment is very real.

When an employee cannot trust the person that is there to over see them (the manager) it is almost akin to an abusive domestic relationship. Violence removed.

I go back to 2015 when an employee commited suicide because of work.

The reason for my darkness is that in 2015 on the 20th January a person who I was helping in the work place took her life because of how she felt treated.

My darkness comes and goes over that and on the whole I deal with it with more resilience. But this week it’s sat on my shoulders as the background to many other things going on at work.

I find myself still asking why the manager who acted as the catalyst to the situation received promotion . I ask myself does this manager sleep well at night.

I see her often in passing. She scurries past me because she knows the blame I place at her feet. The family and me. She looks well rested. She has since the day it happened.

Moral of the story. You are much safer at home.

If you or someone you know is suffering speak to someone. Don’t go silently.

There are supports available.

Second life blog turned into Sansar moment

Second life blog turned into Sansar moment

*UPDATE* Ebbe Altberg and some of the team have liaised with Ryan and it looks to be that this situation is on its way to being resolved. *Dialogue is always a great thing.*

I actually was planning to talk about lovely winters thoughts and such like in this blog this morning regarding second life.But standing here at the bus stop reading my feed I saw a statement from Ryan Schultz that he feels he cannot blog at the moment because yet again someone from the lab has dived in wearing size 26’s and done the take it down or else statement. Link to his Blog

Honestly some days I do wonder about folk.

Positively promoting your experiences. And here you go yet again size 26’s and alienate folk. If you consider that experience a secret….shhhh don’t tell anyone it exists and certainly don’t let anyone enter. Simples. Put disclaimers in entering the experience. I’d say that’s logical isn’t it?

Have you guys in your ivory towers put a sign on the logging page for the experience that states No, go away, no one can know or see!!!!

Or have you now taken the decision that ultimately you are going to take down every single blogger and vlogger just to show you can and scare monger?

Be clear about what you expect . Don’t hide it in the little print. If an experience is not allowed to be seen, common sense is a disclaimer at the teleportation of wording that says so.

Be thoughtful to people who visit. Sansar needs the promotion and here you go and upset a person who promotes it daily, often a number of times a day?

I’m thinking High Fidelity may soon see a surge of interest. In fact I’m reloading it tonight!

And now for the nice stuff….
