Know no-one, if not yourself

It’s not often that I backtrack in these posts – reminiscing aside, but I’ve been going through backed-up documents recently and ‘discovered’ 5 session reports I’d done on my short excursion into a Counselling course in 2004. I’ve decided to publish these here, as I’m sure they will strike a chord with fellow BP sufferers.

Have you seen this man?

Have you been affected? Call our helpline for constructive counselling.

Do not approach

Touting himself as a retired FSB operative, but believed by police to be an active Azerbajani bus conductor, he is wanted in connection with a spate of PC power supply failures in the Cullercoats area. Sometimes alone, but at other times being known [...]

While you were out…

It’s been a while – too long in fact, since I took a look at the stats for any of the sites I run. A complete change of emphasis about what is important and what is not has occurred since the ‘jump start’ in Hospital back in the early spring. Now I’m not complaining. I’ve [...]

Who We Are

This article contains material that some readers may find offensive and/or challenging. If you are easily offended, then please do not read on.
By the very nature of this article I have to respect the feelings of those I have known, and those that know me, so this is by no means a full-on confessional. Let’s [...]

SAD? Light up your life with my DIY 200 watt mini-sun!

SAD light

After my experience in hospital just over a week ago, the house seemed dull and dark. I partially alleviated the problem in my workshop by mounting a 3-spot fitting over my head. (where I’m sitting typing this) Whilst the 150 watts of georgeous warm light shining down on me is wonderful, it came [...]

Splitted Interest Disease – A Cautionary Tale

A recent email correspondence regarding my unfinished DRO project on connectable.org.uk prompted my correspondent to describe my terrible propensity for taking on too much at once as ’splitted interest disease’. This is very apt, and it also makes my favourite TLA – SID!

Seriously though, despite making promises to myself to curb my worst desires, the [...]

Another link bites the dust!

Every time this happens, I swear, loudly, and make a promise to myself never to provide links to ‘helpful’ sites again.

This time it’s mentalhealthcare.org.uk. Their home page simply informs everyone the site is down until February, but the page on Bipolar Disorder has simply been deleted. A placeholder would have been nice, but maybe that’s [...]

Sharing

“You know what? I’m bloody sick of sharing space with you. That f***ing mess of yours gets worse every day. Don’t you ever finish anything?”
I looked at his angry face, but decided not to argue. Of course he was right. In front and to the side of me, the two tables were littered with electronics, half-built, half-tested, awaiting a suitable enclosure, or abandoned, all nestling in a tangled rats-nest of wires.

Who are you? Do you recognize yourself in your eHarmony analysis?

Yes, In the words of Pete Townshend – Who Are You?
I tried to find out by filling in the psychometric test on the eHarmony site. What does it say about me? Well, quite a lot – the full story is given below.

My first impression is that this is the script that Derren Brown had so [...]

The Occasional Diarist – 22 Sep 2009

I shredded a little bit more of my life today. Although the filing cabinet is now down in the entrance hall, awaiting disposal, there still remains about 4 reams of dross piled up where it will offend me constantly, until I get it made into paper sphagetti too.
It’s a job I’ve been tackling off, and [...]
