A Life Revamp Update

A Life Revamp Update

The revamp progress is one that I thought would be a difficult challenge. More than that, it is an uphill battle every day. AJ and I are at breaking point and I don’t know what to do. It seems that everything I touch turns to […]

Reset Once In A While

Looking back over the last couple of weeks, I have been a total waste of space! I have been quiet on The Silent Man and with good reason – I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t write, think or action myself to complete the tasks that […]

6th May – 12th May 2019

This week has been much of a non-event than before. The plans I had made to myself, had all but vanished. The way life gets in the way! Monday Lost I must seem to give myself no chance when I try to plan my day. […]

Men and Mental Health

In an article I read it stated ‘every two hours a man under the age of 45 takes their own life’  . The reality looks as though it may be here to stay for a while. A worrying thought for all of us concerned and […]

Who Is In Charge?

Who Is In Charge?

A thought occurred to me before when looking at a magazine. Who is in charge of us? For all the goings on in our lives, what makes us take the decisions we do? The effect our decisions impact on our mental health can be massive. […]

22nd April – 28th April

Introduction There has not been a lot of activity in this section recently and with good reason. Thinking about the next stage of my life, I thought it best to write a diary to reflect what is happening during this period. So, the analogy is, […]
