Watching, reading, listening, singing, making

Jan 8, 2010 | content | 1 comment

(this is the introduction post to the whole category, so this should give you a bit of background on when, why and how I fit stuff in).

I’m not a big tv or movie watcher – I don’t know if it’s simply because I get bored very easily, or I can’t leave my phone/PDA/laptop/paper/partner/knitting alone long enough to watch much – but I do have a couple of things I really enjoy, and have recently discovered the joys of TV on demand, with Virgin Media (our new ISP/TV and phone provider).  So I thought I’d record what I’m listening to (music and audio books from Audible), watching, singing (I’ll explain that one in a minute), what I’m reading for Uni, for my own further education and for pleasure, and what I’m making (knitting, sewing, crochet)

Signing is about the only one most people don’t seem to record, as in write down, but I’ve really gotten into Rockband (1 and Beatles, plus DLC) lately, so I thought I’d give a rundown of any stand out tracks.  I also indulge in Singstar about once a month.  So this is it 😉

P is for Psychosis #realmentalhealth #mondayblogs #nomorestigma

This is one of my harder blog posts to write, because though I talk – a lot – about the impact my mental health has on my day to day life, and has done for a while, I’m pretty sure that this is the bit no one really understands, causes the most…misunderstanding and I hope, because I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, they can’t relate to. If you didn’t know that psychosis was a feature of my mental health diagnosis, or didn’t understand if you’d heard it mentioned before now, please…don’t start changing your opinion of me. That’s the biggest reason those of us with serious mental health issues aren’t as open as society needs. Because we lose people.
