Deconstructing A Panic Attack – The Climb #165

Wednesday 5th July 2017 I suffered with anxiety for years.  It wouldn’t stop me doing things and I would later identify this as high-functioning anxiety.  It would mostly manifest itself in worries that would just build and build into massive panic attacks. I’m not sure when they first started.  It might have been when I [...]

Sucstress – The Climb #160

Friday 30th June 2017 I made up a word today. My friend (and author) Emma Newman was talking about that welcome stress you get when you’re doing something awesome but it’s still outside your comfort zone.  She was sure there’d be some German word for it, but I suggested we make one up. Sucstress I [...]

The Wartime General – The Climb #159

Thursday 29th June 2017 I think I burnt myself out a bit today.  I had a very active day where I was extremely focused but then never had any energy for the evening’s editing. The day job fun and games have continued today.  What started as demonstrating I had things under control within my department [...]

Feeling Glum For No Reason – The Climb #151

Wednesday 21st June 2017 I’m not sure why, but today was a bit of a glum day.  Everything is going super well at the moment, everything is progressing positively, I’m happy with what I’m doing and there’s no real major stress.  But I just felt like I wanted to climb into bed and give up [...]

A Day Of Failures – The Climb #150

Tuesday 20th June 2017 Today was my biggest day of failure in a long while. Chasepalooza, like any holiday, cost a bit of money.  It was certainly cheaper than previous years.  I was working out the costing for my friend, Pat, who wants to chase with us next year if we do it (I’ll be [...]

Feeling Rough – The Climb #146

Friday 16th June 2017 Today was an odd day.  I’m not sure if I ate something that disagreed with me, or I just naturally feel tired, or I’m mentally stuck on something but I spent the evening feeling totally exhausted and have decided to go to bed early.  Worse still, I’ve not made any progress [...]

Absolute Lethargy – The Climb #133

Saturday 3rd June 2017 I was woken by my neighbour playing music in their garden.  Bloody inconsiderate, I thought.  Didn’t they think that people might need a lay in?  Although I still felt tired, I was awake now so I got up… and then found it was Midday. Yep, I think I’m definitely suffering from [...]

Jetlagged – The Climb #132

Friday 2nd June 2017 I’ve heard it said that jetlag doesn’t hit you for a couple of days after returning, and that would seem to be the case because today I’ve been absolutely floored. I’ve always been pretty lucky.  I usually opt to take a red-eye and try to sleep when flying back from North [...]

Countdown To Canada – The Climb #113

Sunday 14th May 2017 I never sleep the night before a flight. There’s a worry that somehow I’ll oversleep and miss it, that I need to sacrifice that time to make sure I’ve packed everything. At the time of writing, I still have items strewn across my living room.  I still worry I’m going to [...]

The Royal Secret Cabal Of Cake Club – The Climb #110

Thursday 11th May 2017 Rather oddly, a few days before I travel to Canada and the US, I feel the need for a health kick.  My diet has been pretty good for the last year but the major thing I did was give up caffeine. For the first couple of weeks I was a total [...]
