Blocking People out — The Demise

Published by:

I think it’s safe to say that we all at times re-evaluate our lives to see what can make things a lot smoother and stress-free. I have been caught between this re-evaluation period for some months now and I can certainly determine without any doubt that it has been a wise experience, Many long term friends that I went to school with have faced the chop and even long standing friends from my childhood have faced the same fate. 

When drastic actions like this are undertook it usually doesn’t affect anyone within a close circle, but mine has needed that push to think who will be there in the long run. I can’t say that it’s been easy, nor can I say that it’s been something I set out to do, but I can say that it has been something I needed to do. I had to do it, I could not allow it to continue on that road, and that is why I had to make a new road for myself even if that meant going at it alone. 

Many people blocked me from social media months ago for choices I made-which is fine-but at times I don’t think anyone grasps the fact that you have to make your own choices and take any risks whether it means you lose people or not. 

You know what my problem is? Being too trusting and caring. People over the years have taken advantage of that on a big scale. Many of those who I have trusted with huge amounts of money and who have now left me high & dry to pick up pieces of my life that were once stable which are now ruining a possible future. I often blame myself for being too kind to people because I know ultimately that it is my fault because I allowed it to happen. I allowed them to have that privilege, but they were only after one thing-by the way this is many people, not just one person. 

Over a course of four years, my life has been on a downhill. Money has dwindled, people have walked away, and my health has diminished. I predicted a lot of my future and it’s beyond crazy. 

In 2009 I predicted that my money situation would start in early 2015 which would foresee me losing any savings or luxury goods. Even though the timing wasn’t correct I did see a loss as of late 2015; close enough.  

As of 2011, I predicted that I would have a heart problem within four years. Which they did in early 2013, but a final diagnosis was made in mid-2016. I was admitted into the hospital the on 17th January 2013 with a heart rate of 154 which they put it down to anxiety. After three years and many tests later, they discovered that my body produced too much adrenaline, and this was their final conclusion as they found no other defects with my heart or health. 

Late 2013 I also predicted my massive weight gain-but I’m not sure whether this was a lucky guess or life changes. Either way, whatever it was I gained fifty-four pounds within two years. 

With all this said, has my life just dealt me a bad hand or was my life determined to head in this direction? Or could it be possible that I foresee my own future? Crazy as it may seem it might be true and no one will ever know if my predictions were true. 

There’s a little brain teaser for you to mule over.

Being vulnerable is something that happens to us all at some point in our lives and at times it’s something we as human beings can not ignore. I discuss the good and bad sides of vulnerabilities, and how at some stages we have to make ourselves vulnerable to those we love.

Addiction

Addictions aren’t just about substance abuse. An addiction could be anything that gives you relief or escapism from your anxiety. Could there be a causal link between them both, or are we all suffering from some sort of addiction?

Frienship is something we all have. There are three groups we can categorise these as when it comes to frienship: friends, best friends, and acquaintances. I discuss how you have to pick those you trust against those you don’t.

Depression — The Mind Battle

Published by:

At some stage we have all experienced depression in some way. No matter who you are, it has probably hit you when you’ve least expected it to. Depression itself can occur at any time, and it doesn’t matter what age you are. 

When you are locked into a physical stalemate with your own mind it feels like someone has slammed you into a locked room, but the creepiest thing is, this room is your head, and your body confines itself while the world passes you by and you lose all sense of who you are. You continue day-by-day within an isolated state, it’s like living in a bubble that you can’t pop your way out of. 

Finding your way out of this state will be hard, but once you find a way to suppress the feelings that are getting you down, it will then become easier. There are medicated options that can help you, these will help increase your happiness feeling, but this is only a short term solution. Ultimately, you need to find your own ways to cope because one way might help someone else, but then it might not help you. 

Some people say that you need to keep yourself occupied, this is a simple mind trick, it allows you to put the thoughts to the back of your mind, but again, these things don’t always go regardless. 

Stay positive when you can, allow yourself to become free of depression, but it still be a struggle and the war will rage in your mind regardless. 

Week 1 on The FitBit Charge HR

Published by:

So, last week I received my new FitBit Charge HR. This was to upgrade from my FitBit Flex. Initially, I was hesitant on purchasing the device because it wasn’t cheap, retails at around £100-130, not for those with low budgets for fitness devices.
I purchased this mainly to track my heart rate throughout the day, and to see what’s happening with my heart rate while I slept.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you will know that I suffer from an anxiety disorder that gives me weird symptoms. Having this device has certainly pin pointed times where my heart rate has gone too high, even when I’m asleep.
I will attach images below or my heart rate for this first week.
On another note, myself and Steve from Wright Times Blog are part of a group for FitBit Charge HR Facebook group (Steve set it up.)

FitBit Flexing Fitness

Published by:

Recently I was finally persuaded by my best friend Steve (TheWrightTimes.co.uk) to purchase a Fitabit Flex. He has been supporting me a lot recently with my health, which I thank him a lot for being there, even though he is very unwell himself.
So, with this new device it follows my steps, sleep, and activity. I’m hoping this will give me more motivation to get active, and hopefully it will help me push past my anxiety.
My ultimate goal is to get back down to eleven stone (one-hundred and sixty pounds), but this time, I will be watching what I eat and losing weight the proper way (with the MyFitnessPal App).
Anyhow, signing off.
