At my heaviest I was almost 240lbs (109Kg, or 17 stone), that’s not something anyone wants to brag about. I am 5’4” (1.6m) and I am morbidly obese. I wasn’t always so. Up until I was 16 or 17 years old, I was 135 to 140lbs with a 30” waist. I never started putting on … Continue reading A step in the right direction
Today started like every work day. Well, ever since I have been working from home due to Covid-19. I did log onto the system later than I would have normally; perhaps, that was the start. I am being a bit melodramatic to sell the story I would assume. Actually, the morning went by pretty much … Continue reading Communication breakdown
This lock-down is taking its toll on me and I need to express myself. I have been working from home since April 1st, 2020. Before then, I was off work due to a terrible cold and with the Covid-19 virus event happening, I was told to stay home. I am at high-risk with pre-existing conditions. … Continue reading This lock-down
This lock down... How's it working out for you? I thought it wasn't affecting me. I don't think this any more. It's my writing. Rather, it's my lack of writing which shed light to the contrary. One of the signs of depression is not doing what one enjoys doing, and I love to write. It … Continue reading How’s it working out for you?
This is a mental health check-in. Is the self-isolating getting you down? For the most part, I am doing okay. A lot of my friends think that I am an extrovert. I think I am more of an introvert-extrovert. An introvert-extrovert (ambivert), in case you don't know can be defined as: one who "is moderately … Continue reading Self isolation getting you down?
The sky is getting lighter earlier in the mornings and later in the evenings. It’s been overcast a lot, so I cannot say that it is getting brighter. It’s supposed to be sunny here most of this weekend; however, I see nothing but clouds over head. Perhaps, the cloud cover will burn off later. I … Continue reading My week and how I spend it
I met a few friends for dinner and a few drinks last night. I haven’t seen them for quite sometime. I guess I could have tried to see them more often, but we both live in the same city and we’re not too far from one another. I didn’t want to over welcome myself, so … Continue reading Last outing in town (while I still live here)
I’m convinced in our own little ways we are all fucked up. The reason I am bring this up is because I am reading a novel and I noted that everyone seems to be flawed in some way. It got me thinking. I am not perfect either, and then I got to thinking that none … Continue reading More philosophical ramblings
It's strange. I should be happy, but the daylight saving time and the early wintery weather is decking havoc on my psyche. I have been good the last 5 or so years (probably even much longer. I felt like I have conquered Raincouver's winters. This year, though, I am beginning to wonder if I had … Continue reading I should be happier than I feel
It was an emotionally rough weekend. I drank and ate way too much. I have been trying since Christmas to lose weight. This past weekend I tossed this out the door. I didn't feel depressed, but I wasn't in a good place either. I guess I felt a bit blue; although at the time, I … Continue reading This past weekend
