Spike - Always Alone

365 Meme Day 33

Your relationship status and how you feel about it.

Single - and always have been.

I know there are many out there who will moan, but I have never felt all that special, or feasonable looking, so it has never suprised me that I am single. However it did mean I was able to help Mum and dad, over the years, but especially in those last couple of years that they needed it.  And now Jiffy gets the cuddles and sole attention that he has needed.

Just read a couple of comments and realsie I must re-word this.  I am not worried about being single - yes, I can plan a holiday when I want.  What people moan at is my reactions ... the fact I have never felt special, so have never felt suprised that I am single ... Hope this makes more sense.

I Am So Proud Of My Brother

Some of you who have known me some time know that Nick caused me a major heartache about a year ago. Well over the last year he has actually admitted that he is suffering from depression. So much so that he is actually signed off work at present.

When I got home from work today I found this on my doormat. I have only read the intro, but it is well written, and even in that intro he has made me think about some of my views.

Even in the very darkest moments of the deepest depressions, there will always be that glimmer of hope. In Living with Depression, Nick Weatherhogg shares some hope, some light, some techniques, and a little optimism in the midst of depression born not only from psychological training, but also from a personal battle for many years with his own black dog.

It took me a lot to admit to even minor depression, so I am hoping that this book or Kindle helped him, and me as I read it ... and any others that read it.
