Time for change

Well, this is scary. As a person who has suffered with insecurities and depression, I always make an effort for my social media posts to be positive, even if I’m having a bad day. I am well aware that my petty problems are nothing compared to some poor people’s struggles. I am so grateful to be an inflammatory breast cancer survivor, almost 10 years now. I keep telling myself that a day above ground is always a good day. I am lucky to have wonderful family and friends. But I still grieve for the person that I used to be. My body and hair will never be what they once were, but I know I’m not alone there.

I have worked really hard over the last 10 years to do everything I could to enjoy every day. I didn’t recover from an aggressive cancer to be bloody miserable. But life gets in the way, and my old career of finance  management kept calling me back, especially when funds were tight and I needed cash for my next holiday.

But last week I suffered a panic attack in work. I’ll spare you the details but a queue of people at my desk, an ever growing email list and a demanding work schedule just pushed me over the edge.

A few days at home has given me time for reflection, I need to put into practice what I know. I’ve done many personal development courses, and studied Nutritional Healing, and met some amazing people. And still my life, and body, is not what I want.

Time for change.

After a few false starts I have started a detox programme, really simple, drink a herbal tea which cleanses by eliminating toxins and boosting the immune systems with organic herbs and medicinal mushrooms. A great side effect is weight loss. Winner Winner. Can I do it?

Wish me well x

Mick Ralphs Blues Band at Giants of Rock, Minehead 29/1/16

brilliant band! I loved every minute of their set at Giants of Rock

Darren's music blog

“If the last time you saw Mick Ralphs was on some distant stadium stage this is a chance to get up close to the man and his music,” says the programme for the weekend.

Actually, no -the last time I saw former Mott the Hoople and Bad Company guitar supremo, Mick Ralphs, was right here at Butlins for the same Giants of Rock weekend just a year ago. But so impressive was he and the rest of his band it was an experience I was more than happy to repeat.

As I noted last year, Ralphs has assembled a very able bunch of musicians, Jim Maving on additional guitar, Dicky Baldwin on bass and (new boy) Damon Sawyer on drums. Inescapable logic about inevitable human mortality is reminding us that the rock icons of the 70s are not going to be around forever. Indeed, we are losing quite a…
