Back to work.

Well after 8 weeks of being off sick i am due back to work on Monday night, which i am finding a bit daunting.

Over the last eight weeks i have had to confront many ghosts and demons from my past which i thought i had buried, but that was the problem i had buried them and never dealt with them.

It is amazing how one thing can lead to another, i was originally signed off sick by my Dr. for stress and insomnia caused by work, this time off has made me in a way re-asess my life, and i am thankful now for it.

I know that i will return to work as a different person, hopefully a stronger person.

I have always gone throu life being a person trying to please other people doing what i think they would want me to do and i know many people have taken advantage of that, i now think it is time to put myself first, not in a selfish way, but in an assertive way.

Will it make a difference to my life?

I don't know, but i do know my life is very empty at this time, so any changes i make can only be for the better.

I also just want to thank one special person here as i have taken insperation from just reading her blogs, she is a very special Lady and i want to say thankyou P.

Im humbled.

We all pick each other up when we stumble around here though dont we.

I think my favourite poem footprints is something we all feel is significant in our hour of need & i know many many of my friends here have felt lifted by the words & faith of those who care & share on here.

I send a hug & keep it close to you in your first week back.

You've really opened my eyes, here, because I think I've buried some demons that wouldn't stay buried either. Vanquish them now or somehow learn to live alongside them seem to be the "What do you really do with a demon?" options. But burying them alive just doesn't work.

You both look and come across as a really nice guy--and one not afraid to bare his soul,either.

Whatever your problems were--I've obviously only just been in contact with you very briefly and even that was enough to show me the lovely man you undoubtedly are----I hope that they are resolved and that you are now a truly,truly happy person----you certainly deserve to be!

Hope your time spent on this site--and maybe similar ones--are helping to give you both fun and new friends as you become stronger within yourself in health and spirit---

Warmest wishes for only good things for you--and on those times that life DOES deal you those nasty blows now and then---may you just breeze through them or at least have the strength to face them head-on and come out the winner----and even if you don't--you will now know that come what may,you will cope in any case!

Karen---- xxxxxxxx
