    The Best A Man Can Be

    Who knew? I’m actually stood in the aisle reading this and you’re right. It makes no odds to me. I always avoid the pink products anyway. Tacky colour

    All the complainers doing the advertising for them. Have you seen it? It’s hard to get excited about

    Jeez! I was too scared to watch...although had clocked that my phone hadn’t notified me of The End
  5. You and me both, Verbal. I have zero interest in becoming a grandparent ‘any time soon’ and at this moment it doesn’t look like either of my kids have any plans in that department and long may that continue
  6. I loved them at that age too but I love them and my life so much more now
  7. I don’t but I think I’m probably delusional. I can’t remember feeling it quite so vividly on previous birthdays
  8. My boy’s 25 today. Twenty. Five. How did that happen?!?!!

    Sick of being Fat

    There was a bloke on telly over Christmas who was on a diet of just mince pies. He felt shite but he had lost weight so reduce the calories and you could eat anything I guess

    Does anyone know when the rest of the season's fixture times get sorted out?

    Just you and me, Lario, it seems. Oh, and after the gym yesterday I can hardly move. This is horrific

    Haha! I was just thinking of doing an ‘anyone seen Mook’ post. Bloody hell, mister

    There was a similarly named thread a little while back but it didnt feel the appropriate place for this post (if you do a search you'll see why!) I have toyed with posting on here about this on and off over the past few months but always decided against it until now...and even as I write this I'm wondering if I'm doing the right thing. It is not about sympathy. I was diagnosed with depression a few months ago. This is my first experience of this illness and I wondered what experiences others might have/have had and what has and has not worked for them with the idea that these experiences might be helpful for others. In brief, depression crept up on me towards the end of the summer and was at its worst during August. I am so grateful to 'this place' for the distraction and company during that time when I hardly went out (except for when I went out on my bike...something, strangely, I managed to keep up) Things picked up a bit after that and in strange circumstances seemed to sort themselves out almost overnight at the beginning of October. In the weeks after that I thought I had put it behind me and then at the beginning of the month I began to feel it creeping back and this has escalated over the past week or so. I think I know some of the reasons for the onset of my depression in the first place but I cannot explain why I have had this second dip (a double dip depression I am describing it in my head) which only seems to add to the upset I feel. Like many others, when I first began to feel low I kept things to myself but in the end couldnt keep it in any longer and spoke to family and friends. I cant tell you how supportive they have been and how pleased they have been to see me getting better.......and now that I am feeling things falling apart again I just feel so awful admitting this to myself and to all those lovely people who have looked after me. I have seen my GP this week and I have started some antidepressant medication but I just wanted to hear if anyone else has had any similar experiences or any advice to offer me or others about what has/has not worked for them/people they know Thanks

    The man’s right and I know Stig’ll be along in a minute to say what a horrible time he had but the drugs work for me. They won’t sort out whatever it is you’re struggling with but they can settle your mind and give you the space you need to help you think what you need to do to get to a better place. You are very definitely not alone

    Sick of being Fat

    And then I was surprised that no-one responded to you, Lario. I’m probably more in the Sick of Being Unfit camp but I’d love to shed a few pounds too. I’ve let a bit of weight creep on over the past few months and then just before Christmas I went on a social bike ride and shocked myself at how much fitness I’d lost. I just couldn’t enjoy the cycle at all and I don’t want to be that person, so time to get back to it. Since that dreadful ride I’ve been getting out on my bike and have been starting to build my stamina back up over distance before adding some more climbing. I’ve been back at the gym today and have been cutting back on the bad stuff food wise. Writing this I’m wondering whether it’s going to be enough because I really don’t want to be where I am now. I’m hoping by writing it down this is going to work like my Winter Positivity thread and motivate me to make some real change rather than it just occupying my mind but not actually doing much. Here goes...

    Thoughts and prayers etc
  21. You’ve done it now. I might have to look out ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’ now
  22. I like Winehouse and Pete Doherty’s music, I can’t help it
  23. There wasn't a lot of glamour towards the end...and like with all addictions, it's not just the addict it brings down
