I Severed My Finger – The Climb #373

Monday 29th January 2018 For someone who fights with blades I’m not very good with sharp objects. I had a major injury today and sliced a good chunk of my finger off, nail and all. The day job was really busy this morning.  We had a major incident that took a lot of our time [...]

I Broke My FitBit – The Climb #365

Sunday 21st January 2017 I’m still getting aftershocks following last weekend’s anxiety attack.  I was pretty rough going to bed last night and still felt a little anxious this morning.  Random things keep setting it off and I’m not sure why. I’d already decided that I would go sparring this morning.  It was a long [...]

Do You Even Lift, Bro? – The Climb #364

Saturday 20th January 2018 It’s funny how plans come about. For the last week I’ve been considering some new fitness goals for 2018.  In 2015 I felt my fitness was far behind everyone else I swordfight with.  I was slow, both in movement and in reaction.   2016 it was about taking my fitness to a [...]

The Couch Potato – The Climb #362

Thursday 18th January 2018 The big trouble with finishing a big project like an edit or a novel is that you suddenly find time on your hands. I liken it to stepping off a travellator or that alien feeling you have when you walk into your house after a holiday.  You’ve been working on a [...]

Teaching Rapier – The Climb #361

Wednesday 17th January 2018 After feeling calmer yesterday I found myself coming back from training  late tonight and having another small panic attack.  It was small enough that I could recognise it right away but it’s meant that whilst being in desperate need for sleep, I’ve stayed up late hoping for it to subside. The [...]

Calmer – The Climb #360

Tuesday 16th January 2018 I’m definitely feeling a lot better today.  I’ve been feeling a lot calmer and my anxiety has died down a lot. It’s left me feeling exhausted.  Having felt like I’ve drunk too many energy drinks the last few days, I now feel like I want to sleep.  Given that I’ve not [...]

Blue Monday – The Climb #359

Monday 15th January 2018 Today is supposed to be Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year.  For me, that’s certainly partly true as my anxiety has been spiking all over the place.  It’s been caused by a number of things and has just seemed to have come to a head. However, I took [...]

Anxiety And Edits – The Climb #358

Sunday 14th January 2018 I feel terrible.  I was unable to sleep last night due to my racing mind and then when I did, I ended up waking up a few hours later. I’m at that stage where I just need to rest and keep my mind occupied.  The moment I’m left to my thoughts, [...]

Racing To The End – The Climb #357

Saturday 13th January 2018 I’ve not really been in the mood to be sociable today.  A combination of factors have sent my anxiety sky high and it was only as I prepare to go to bed that I realise that  I’ve been having an anxiety attack for the past three days. I’ve been trying to [...]

The Year Of The Offensive – The Climb #344

Sunday 31st December 2017 2017 was a funny old year.  It was my Year of the Offensive … a year for me to push myself and claim the rewards for my hard work.  As I said back then “it’s going to be a year where I happen to it rather than it happens to me”. [...]
