Hitting Grief

Published by:

It’s been a while since my last post. I don’t know where to start. Let me paint a picture to give this context. Have you ever loved someone so much that you could never see yourself without them and you played out scenarios of them being with you no matter what happens? Well, this was me.

My dog Bissell sadly passed away from liver failure on November 6th, 2020. He had been ill for a couple of months after contracting leptospirosis from a neighborhood dog because they allowed it to urinate everywhere in the communal area of our flats. They wouldn’t even clean up after it happened. Consocencly, Bissell had inhaled some of the infected urine from the floor and he contracted the disease.

We tried everything for Bissell over the course of two months. Helping him eat, late nights, taking his medication, and kept him as happy as we could. He was beyond loyal and showed no pain even up to the end. I know he was just trying to spare my feelings.

Fast-forwarding to the day he passed away. I got up like normal and attempted to get him moving to do his business outside. I attached his lead, but Bissell couldn’t stand up. Alarm bells went off in my head so I picked him to my chest. All I could hear was his breathing being labored, it was a very weird sound. Gargle, gargle, click, and that would repeat. At this point, we attempted to get him to walk, but all he did was walk into the wall twice.

We rang our vet from the PDSA and they asked to see him straight away. I knew at this point that he wouldn’t be coming back and my heart broke. Tears were streaming down my face as I took him to the car. I gave him a big cuddle and kiss, told him I love him, and handed him to my mother. She looked at me and said, “you know he’s not coming back?” I said yes, and tears fell even more.

Mum and Dad came back about twenty minutes later with his collar. They explained that when they got there the vet said that Bissell had minutes to live and he handed him back to mum. With that, Bissell took one last breath and closed his eyes, and he started his journey over the rainbow.

The aftermath of losing him has been terrible, he was my best friend and a huge part of my life. I have been left mentally worn out and I no longer feel like me. It’s been four months and the grief still brings me to tears. I’m now no longer wanting to do things that I loved, and I feel like I want to shut myself away from people. I don’t think I will ever be the same again.

Maybe I need to seek extra help regarding this, but for now, I need to power on through it all. Take what you will from this. Grief has hit me so hard, and I don’t know what to do.

Rouge eBay & Amazon Book Sales

Published by:

Over the last twelve hours we have been informed about rouge sellers trying to profit from selling my books at unbelievable prices. The truth is that they don’t even own any stock of the books, they simply order it through Amazon at a reduced cost and Amazon ships it to the customer.

We are now taking the steps necessary to have any listings taken down from any site that are falsely claiming they have stock when it’s really being printed on demand. This does not include legitimate sales, eg. Actual purchases of the book. We do allow resale of books if they have been purchased from our publisher or authorised printing providers. Printing providers include: fulfilled by Amazon, lulu.com, Waterstones, WHSmith, and any third party company related to lulu.com.

Being transparent on this issue is paramount, and that is why we are honest about the situation. Please also bare in mind, even as the author of these books, I make NO PROFIT from sales of the books and proof can be provided of this. The only person making any profit in this is my publisher lulu.com and that is as and when a book is ordered.

If you wish to get my books for free you will find them on every major bookstore. These include: iTunes, Google Play, Smashwords, Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble. Each paperback book was transferred to ebook formats and this will always be the case, and FREE of course!

Thank you for the ongoing support and I hope you continue to support me through this book journey.

Ex Twitter Slander — The Truth

Published by:

Recently, my partner went on Twitter and found that my ex had put up a nasty tweet about me. The ex claims that I was bad news and arrogant. Bare in mind that she is only saying this because I refuse to answer her emails. I have a life!

Anyhow, once my partner saw it she tweeted the ex and said: it’s funny, we’ve been together nearly a year and we haven’t had any issues. The ex didn’t like this for sure.

To be brief, the ex hated that we caught her out, she made out that I was some nasty person, trying to get people to unfollow me, and even tried to say I hacked her twitter account.

The worst of it was that the ex threw insults at my partner for defending me.

But, who knew exes could be this crazy and jealous. I am glad I don’t have to put up with her again.

Opinions Twitter — Public Service Announcement

Published by:

This is a public service announcement regarding my recent tweets on Twitter concerning my opinions on certain subjects. Please take time to read through this announcement because it will make it clear on my intentions. 

If you have been following my Twitter feed, you will know that I have been following Katie Hopkins very frequently. Now, this initially started because I wanted to see what all the hype was behind the Katie Hopkins persona. Before following her, I always heard certain rumours, not only from the public, but within the media also. 

After following her for just a week, it appears to me that she says certain things to get a reaction, but also I believe people take some of her tweets out of context. The most notable tweet this week has been about dementia. She stated her own plans in the event that she got the horrible disease. But, people have taken this personally because she used the term “bed blockers.” This is the only part that I didn’t agree with, I totally understand the plans she has in place because I wouldn’t want to put my family through the same. 

Now, I understand why people got upset or why they attacked me on Twitter, but we live in a world of freedom of speech and unfortunately nobody will have the same opinion all the time. I want to make this clear, if you do not like what I post on twitter, or if you take offence, please unfollow because I will not be changing my opinion just because someone has got upset about it. As I have said on Twitter, if you cannot stand the forum, then do not join in. I will respect your opinion, but I will not change my mine to suit somebody else. 

If you would like to follow me on Twitter my username is @MarcSnappy 

This is the end of this public service announcement, thank you.
