Finally felt a life worth living

Feeling good

Today was the first time in months that I actually felt alive, I felt like the old (but now improved) me. It was the best day I have had in weeks. I put it down to the therapy I’ve had, the therapy I’m having, getting my medication right and spending quality time with my friends.

Ride out

I went to Dunwich with my adopted family. Three went in a car (plus two dogs) and two of us on motorbikes. Just the ride there was good therapy. Lots of good roads and the weather was perfect.

Fish and chips

I was treated to fish and chips on the beach. I don’t remember. The last time I sat on a beach. The food was lovely and the company ever better. I was tempted to go in the sea for a swim, but I had my bike gear on.

Quality time

My family and friends are the best. Today was pure quality time. Just a simple thing like sitting on a beach was all we needed to have an amazing day. I can’t explain how good I actually felt, it was almost unreal.

Worn out

The combination of the sea air, the riding and the release of endorphins has left me worn out. I’m home and writing this from my bed. So pleased to be able to write a positive blog for once. So glad I’m still alive.
