Moving To Ghost 25 Nov 2014

After a conversation erupted on #drupal-uk about using the right tool for the job I decided that I would move my blog to something that was right for the job. #Why move from Drupal? Firstly Drupal is great! I love working with it on a daily basis but it’s overkill for what I need. I have more half finished attempts at adding a cool feature on the old Drupal site than I care to admit to. Drupal allowed me to get an idea of what I wanted from a blog this is something that influenced greatly my decision to move...

Front/Back End 17 Nov 2014

The Long Road Back From Medication 12 Nov 2014

You become so desperate that you’re willing to try anything to get better. It’s a good thing to a certain extent. It shows that you’re at the stage where you want help in any form.

I can see what we’re trying to achieve through CBT but it just seems a bit pointless, I don’t think we really covered much of importance. I much prefer in person sessions as I can’t distract myself or become distracted by other things as easily.

I’d be interested to see what other people’s CBT session...

Time 27 Oct 2014

Time is a funny thing, we emblazen it on our phones, our wrists, on our walls in every facet of our daily lives. It controls us whether we like it or not. When I first experienced death it was one of the hardest things to deal with, the resounding thing that people said was that “time heals everything”. Well I call bullshit to this day I’m still hurt by the death of my grandmother. She was a wonderful person taken from us far too early. Time really is a funny thing. You can listen to a ticking clock and witness...
