    >Randomly bizarre thing which is making me happy at this very moment and which will probably make you think I’m crazy: BE radio is playing In The Navy by The Village People. My sister and I have a thing for silly songs and if every there was one this is it. Randomly misheard song lyric which will probably make you think I’m crazy: I wish I was a porn frog girl with flowers in my hair. (actually is I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair, from the song of that name by Sandi Thom). Random observation: The Coca-Cola Co should not have started messing with…

    >Raising Awareness

    >You know what I’d like? If people would tell me the truth If they would admit that they don’t understand If they would admit that they CAN’T understand. If people would take the time to listen And to attempt to learn Promises were kept Assumptions weren’t made If my life at the moment wasn’t one huge fight I am many, many things. Too many to mention. And I had a great week. But it kind of got lost in the mileau that is the one thing it seems people CAN see about me – my CP. I am working on a disability awareness project which will go up on part…

    >Good Stuff

    >Guess what? At swimming today I swam 20 lengths (500 metres – the pool is 25 metres long) and I WALKED 4 lengths (100 metres in total). Two with one volunteer walking backwards in front of me so I could hold onto their arms for balance. Then I had a rest, chatted a little and swam some more and walked two more with another volunteer doing the same as the first. And I am going out with a kind of new friend tonight for a few drinks – I’ve known her for a while but only professionally although we’ve always got on well. Good stuff. No, Great Stuff All content…

    >Oh how medical life is when CP’s in your world…

    >It’s strange… I haven’t written here properly in over a week but I can’t think of anything that I do want to write here right now, now that I can again. My appt with my GP to discuss depression issues etc went well, or at least as well as it could have under the circumstances. She really understood what I told her and set me up with a follow up appt with her in a month and also one with the nurse for what was meant to be an ongoing follow up/support. This was to help me a bit with my weight/diet as I feel like I’m trapped in a…

    >Pleased :o)

    > I’m going out with my parents tonight and needed to buy something that fitted the bill of smart casual yet summery and cool. So I went shopping and I got a new shirt. In a size smaller then I thought I needed. And it fits REALLY WELL! Pleased? Why, yes. I am.

    >I have abandoned the 100 poems challenge for the time being I guess I’ll restart it in a week or two. I’ll have to start from 0 again but thats ok the key is less stress NOW. And it seems that one of my decsions has been made for me but thats ok too and actually helpful.  Basically they are going to try to find a new secretary for the access group or at least someone to help me out with it.  Its tough but when Ted asked if I wanted him to find someone else I couldn’t say no, didn’t have it in me topretend I’m coping w/ it…

    >Blah

    >If at some point soon I disappear for a few days, don’t worry about it. Next week is crazily busy and I need to “recharge my batteries.” There are a lot of things in my life that I’m finding stressful/depressing/getting me down at the moment and I have a lot of tough decisions to make. I also feel like a couple of people don’t, CAN’T understand how I feel and react and as such make things tougher for me. Hopefully some time to myself will allow me to regroup, get some of the stress things sorted out and make a few decisions. I suck at decisions though so no guarantees!…
