Social Media

Image  

Hi all, 

I know i have taken a little break from my blog, and in some ways its been a case of nothing exciting to blog about, or a deliberate act to stay away from the PC..  

I have been thinking for a little while that social media obviously has its good points but has lots of Bad points..

Years ago i used to have some form of life, i had a relationship, I had kids that i took places (still do), i have had dogs that i took for walks over my life time (no longer have a dog due to relationship breakdown and rental property, i used to go horse riding as a young child, i love photography, riding bikes, swimming, going to the gym ect.. Now things started to go pear shaped some years ago in my relationship if i am honest although at the time the man in my life at the time convinced me all was ok, and we were not like other people..

Then along came the likes of a PC which was only uses like a word processor then more of a search engine, but the more my relationship went wrong (in a growing appart not suitable for one another) things like Facebook, Plurk, my space now twitter all became a alternative life to the real life.. 

And i sit here wondering is the internet brainwashing me that the false world is better than the real world..  No of course its not,, but i find social media is draining my life away…

But also i fine some media like genes reunited a very good source of media for getting info i need for my family tree so its a good thing and very positive as is Ebay and other auction sites  but it all stops you from getting out and about, you can even food shop on line without the hassle kids wanting stuff, but i hardly shop online unless i am ill and can’t get out then is good, but i love to look about the hopes, it also give kids live skills too..  

I hav a few friends but not many that i interact with mainly cause i am in a bubble right not and not sure what i want out off live,,other than makes sure my kids are ok..

Being Single is not easy,, so much needs to be done from Cooking, washing, cleaning, ironing not to mention cutting the grass and weeding and yes i do get help from my eldest whom i could not do without.. his been amazing… but i find i don’t have time for everything, then things get built up, and then i sink back into the computer… 

having said all this i am not to worry about anything, cause i think considering we as a little family unit are doing quite well.. a mix of both real life and virtual keeps us sane.. 

Where Has the time gone?

I know its been a little while since i did a post and that’s down to the fact i have moved my PC out of the living room to avoid me sitting at PC for too long, in a bid to try a have a better life so i can get more done, even if it is housework,,  its going well but could be better,  I am working on a post for some stuff i did at the weekend. but i need to sort some photos out before i do so,,  I will hope to post later,  so catch then..  

What a Week

As you may have read on a  previous Blog I suffer with IBS-D for past 6 years or longer and PCOS for the past 13 years, well diagnosed but had it since Puberty,,  Anyway I had to have a routine medicine appointment at the Drs surgery on Tuesday last week just to make sure i am on the right meds for my conditions….

My Normal Dr is off on long term illness so i had to see one of the others, this is not a problem to me as they are all great at my practice but their treatments are all different for the same conditions.. This time my Dr blew me away… He has stopped my anti sugar tablets that i have been on for the past 13 years well on and off as they stop them now and again but now i have had a Hysterectomy some say i need them some say i don’t as they are normally given to people who are trying to conceive as it can help overweight women to loose weight..  

I was also on a drink to help me go to the loo (IBS-D)  but this was hit and miss as one dr would say take every day and another would say take only when you feel pain, so as i don’t get much pain i was not taking the drink.. 

Tuesday became a new day to the rest of my life I think… like i said the anti-sugar tablets known as metformin and my drink meds Fybogel with mebeverine has been stopped and changed to the normal Fybogel that i must take 2 times a day (breakfast and dinner) after the meals… 

But the biggest change is 

Image   Yep No Gluten Diet,  Yep panic kinda set in as i do like bread, cereals and chocolate. But i better do it,  i am not a coeliac but the Dr feels that i may be intollerant to the the Gluten and its not helping my guts or bowels..  i did find this on a web site so please do take a read   http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-7482/10-signs-youre-gluten-intolerant.html  

So far things have been ok with no gluten but the biggest thing is that Gluten Free Products have double the sugar and more calories than normal foods, and more expensive too, but i have to do it and so far i my tummy has less bloating and i seem to have more energy about me, then again i have not had any cravings for anything that i should not be having.. watch this space…..

Why Do I Blog

Image  

I was reading my friend Shauns blog http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/why-do-we-blog and a very interesting piece on Why do we blog? go take a look..

But i decided to write a piece on why i blog.. 

Now I started blogging back in March 2009 over on blogger cause I saw a few friends of mine at started a blog and they said that it would be good fun,  Things in my life were not brilliant to say the least, cracks began to show in my relationship with my childrens father.. so when i started to blog it was more of an escape than an account of my life.. it would be one blog here and another one a few weeks later, i did have a 2.5 year old baby at the time .. but everything n my relationship was going wrong, and i found myself trying to change countless time for a man who really did not appreciate anything any more, and more and more i was pushed away, not into the arms of another man, but i was told to go to the gym, loose weight and he may find me better,, but in reality we had drifted apart.. so i  would blog to escape. the sadness in my world.. I tried to tell him things were not working but he never would listen,  that was to come last year when he wanted out this time, and i agreed.. Anyway,, I blogged probably pretty much everyday 

I also have a son who i mentioned before had needed heart surgery as a baby and as he grew things were starting to show he needed help educationally. which was something else i had to fight for the Support for my sons education,  then, finding out i was infertile was a biggie for me when my eldest was 5, ,no more children without IVF you have PCOS and that did feel like my world was over,  ok took a big blow, but something happened some 6 years later and i was expecting my youngest.. pretty sad really that me and the kids dad are not together,  anyway I blogged and blogged and it helped release the frustrations i had within me.. my body was cracking although never really had full blown depression but got low, then the panic attacks kicked it..

In a way,  me blogging in the past has kinda helped me to offload ,, not that many people read my blog as it was a time for trolls too, bullies that would upset you for their own happiness.. So i blogged for me, and not for readers, it did get personal it got nasty at times my blog,  but i felt better when i had done it, 

 

But today is a different blog,  I have moved on to wordpress for a new me i suppose to the old moaning me,, but a new way forward me,  I mean I have been me all along just at different phases or stages in my life.. I blog as i enjoy it,  its not always about escaping from the real world as my world is a better place now, although some stuff is hard to get through but i do,, I blog for the pleasure of blogging. partly escape. and partly cause i am totally crazy and need to write stuff of utter rubbish, but who cares,  someone will read it.. even if they don’t like it..  But if you do  thanks for stopping by
