August

August was undoubtedly the suckiest month ever, redeemed ever so slightly by a good friend’s wedding in Brighton. That was great.

Other than that, I broke my foot, spent two weeks at home on my own with no-one to talk to all day, and at the end of it all, was diagnosed with depression and prescribed pills that give me the shits.

And it wasn’t even sunny. Fucker!

Congrats to everyone who completed their Red Planet script. If I could have maintained a train of thought for more than ten minutes I’d have been there with you, brothers and sisters. Excuses, excuses, eh? Best of luck.

  3. My foot's in an aircast, which is basically a big, self-assembled padded boot. It makes me look like a Mike McMahon penned Judge Dredd, or Robocop - from the ankle down anyhow.

    I'll have to wear it for another six weeks or so. I look like a bit of a spaz, but it's better than a plaster cast, because I can take it off to go to bed, or have a bath, thank god.

    The depression is something my doctor picked up on when I went to see him a couple of weeks ago because I wasn't sleeping. He's prescribed me Citalopram which is supposed to stop my body flushing serotonin, so that I shouldn't feel so foggy, down, and hopeless all the time. It has some unpleasant side-effects as your body tries to figure out what it should do with it, but they shouldn't last long. In a month's time, we'll talk about counselling.

    It all sounds really dire, but I actually feel okay because I'm finally doing something about it, rather than perpetuating it by bottling my feelings up and not talking to anyone.

    Expect some touchy-feely posts in the next few months!

  11. Oh, I hate the goddam Black Dog. The bastard has had its teeth into me on a number of occasions. Good luck in kicking it in the nads and sending it on its way

  13. Sad to see that you have turned to the dark side (the pic). Give Obi Wan a call, he's worried about you.

    Hope your foot and your mind get better soon, sir.
