Insurance and our hospitals


I am recovering from an operation at this present time and have spent two weeks in bed. For the past four months, I have suffered hemorrhoid issues and the pain got so out of control I needed surgery. We are lucky to have very good private hospitals but you need to understand that they are not cheap. Over the last four years, I have been placed in hospital four times and the costs were huge. I am...

this is social media


During this depression I have had that has just had to have conspired with Covid-19, I have watched a lot of old movies. Around the 1930-50s period and I have noticed one thing about everything. Men were real men and ladies were Dames. They were not logging onto social media and trying to live a life from funny posts and likes. It was a totally different time. It was not hours and hours a day...

Depressed since April 2020


I have not written since April of this year. Depression struck me in early April and up till this point I have not been able to write, let alone post even anything on Facebook. Most people think of depression as a fleeting thing that sticks around for a few hours or days and then just goes away. In my case, it has been seven months of despair that has rotated with sudden mood changes in the...

Social Distancing at home


For the last 14 odd days, we have been in lockdown at home. I have only been to the Super Market once during this period for about 20 minutes to buy another two weeks of meat and vegetables. The rest of the time has been spent at home listening to Audiobooks, listening to YouTube Music and looking at News on the Internet. Social distancing is very important, so as a family unit, we have not mixed...

The art of self-isolation


Photo by cottonbro from Pexels At the start of this year, such a set of words like this being said, you would have been looked at with a crazy stare and people wondering what sort of drugs you were on. Since that point, well for many until a vaccination comes, self-isolating is something that needs to done to preserve your health. So out at our village, I have closed our front gate, advised...



I have not written for some time as I have been sick. The last four months have been a hard slog as I have been very depressed and over the last week, my mood has been very unstable. I think I am going now through a mixed state (between depression and hypomania) because at times I feel like I am touching God and I want to be famous. Yet then a few hours later I am just depressed and have no...

The Pioneering Spirit


Going to be a different post today. I just finished watching “Hell on Wheels”, and it got to do a lot of thinking. What makes a person have so much drive to do such an endeavor as build the Trans-Pacific Railroad? What makes people pack up and travel halfway around the world like the Irish and the Chinese did. Was it due to the sickening poverty and war or was it is a lust for...

Trip To Uttaradit


Yesterday was a sad day. We drove East to Uttaradit. The Labrador that we have had for three years went to a new home on a Duriun Farm to one of Fhon’s good friends. I have not been well enough over the last four months to take care of the dog properly and we decided it was much better for the dog to have wide-open spaces with a friend that was totally in love with Labradors. Fhon cried for...

Acaba Coffee


I have been depressed for quite some time. In the evenings, I just get very sad and morose and get very down and cry. That is the terrible part about being depressed – you just have no reason at all to be depressed and you just are. Nothing shifts it, you don’t care about things and it is not good for those around you. So Fhon yesterday got me to get up early and she forced me into...

Three Years Ago


Three years ago I wrote this on my other blog. I was a mess at the time and I had just only met Fhon who was known back then as Mrs. Cake Girl. The difference of my life now is great but I am now in the middle of a depressive episode and now heavily medicated but in a better frame of mind. Just proves things can change over time. THREE YEARS AGO For the past 30 years, I have been taking...
