Age Uk Computer Class, Oxford – Peter Knopp

teaching, computers, classes and 2 more...

So it starts in 2006. I’d just left school and inspired by my Science teacher, who, got me a Double ‘C’ grade in Physics to venture into teaching.

My Career in Teaching: New Beginnings
Upon leaving school and inspired to move into teaching but didn’t know where or what to teach, I pursued secondary school level education. Doing a two week volunteering...

Yesterday was an explosion of emotions. Of-course things had to go wrong. I mean, it just makes sense. When things are finally starting to get better that's when it all comes crashing down. The universe ALMOST slipped up and let me be happy, but it quickly corrected that mistake. Good job universe. Good job for making me always feel so fucking terriable....


I Was So Wrong

Posted by firelife in firelife's Blog, 01 May 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

The third and final part to my previous posts. We broke up. This time it's final.

I feel pretty foolish for thinking that a last chance with my girlfriend would be an amazing and long-term strike of fortune for me. I thought that, now I have my chance, I won't mess it up, and we'll be perfect, just like before. Just like we used to be. Admittedly, a part...


Claming Up

Posted by in the shadows in in the shadows' Blog, 01 May 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I find myself wanting to clam up, to not express what's going on or what I think, there's hurt and pain and disappointment when you are open and vulnerable . at the moment I don't think I can handle it, I feel like I am in school not part of the inn crowd , its all just me, the way I present myself or say things, that turn people away or just want to ski...


And Three Years Later...dusting The Blog Off

Posted by LonelyHiker in Tim's Blather, 30 April 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Wow, reading my entries from three years ago was...kind of a trip lol..to be honest, I had forgotten that I'd even started a blog here at DF.

A lot has happened since my last entry, and as it would waste valuable bandwidth ( and data) to recap what is for the most part inconsequential minutae, I will sum it up as quickly as possible:

Internetless for se...


How Are You?

Posted by allalone6 in allalone6's Blog, 30 April 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

How are you? 3 little words that don't mean much to the average person. Ive never taken the words for granted. Even if I my answer was a lie, I still appreciated the fact that someone cared to ask. I admit sometimes I wished the question didn't come up, because I hated having to lie, but in the back of my mind I was so very glad it still did.

I guess I n...


Painful Beginnings

When something is happening you don't understand it can be very scary.
Funnily enough I was 23 when my journey began... I just didn't know it then. It all started in a decision made 4 months before I even noticed anything was wrong. I was training 4-5 times a week at the time, all different martial arts pursuing my goal of getting into the fight business....


Walking The Right Path

Like all mindsets that barrage us daily it's nice to drop the norm and head into one of the three paths of life. Always go for the one that makes you comfie. Keeping the arrow straight here, but boy it's hard at times.

Well it`s sunday.I `ve had a pretty nice week.Most of it was nice until I started to feel bad again.I mostly start to feel bad around the evening.I don`t know why.It`s odd to me because I used to be such a night owl.Now on my bad days I just can`t wait to get to bed.I feel so awful that I just want to sleep so I don`t have to feel bad anymore.My head eith...

Where I come from (Switzerland), this is a phrase which if literally translated means 'There's nothing better than something good'. Well, that may seem obvious, but often we forget just how important it is to look after ourselves, and actually give ourselves something good to feel about.

It's easy to fall into a routine which excludes self-care. Small th...


Packing & Moving

It's been about a month... I can't wait around anymore for Husband to decide to "fix things"... I got my own apartment and am moving out this weekend. We'll probably end up divorcing. This is so painful; I feel like I'm walking away from my "soulmate" (well, until he cheated I thought he was my soulmate). I still love him, but I can't stay here while h...

Loud I like this image, the way it's all put together wrong. That's sort of how I feel sometimes.

Metal music is where part of my strength lives; the other part lives in my spiriutality, in my relationship with God. Sometimes I really can't seem to get the music loud enough, you know?

If you have problems with obsessive thinking, and find it hard to get...


Craving A Spiritual Experience

Posted by jasonh in jasonh's Blog, 19 April 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Indifference to life. Does anyone else feel this? Living day to day willingly ignorant of the things happening around you. Submissive to the things that happen to you, and unwilling to put up a fight? The longer that this life keeps me, I am increasingly asking myself "what for?" Many people put all of their energy into love, their work, their hobbies, et...


I Don't Know What To Title This.

Posted by ohgosh in ohgosh's Blog, 18 April 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I haven't really been on the forums much lately, because things have actually been going pretty well for me, and I've been happier than I've been in a while. My parents understood about me needing to talk to them less, and we're all doing much better because of it! I got a job, and I like it, and it pays well and keeps me busy! I've still got a lot to tak...

Its a beautiful song originally sung by George Benson. I never heard it before. Sad thing is I first heard it on the NBC footage of Jonestown. On the Night of november 17 1978 during Leo Ryan visit jonestown resident happily  sung this.

I haven't been on in awhile because I just have been scared about opening up I guess... So I am a little over 9 months clean and sober. Its the hardest thing that I have ever done in my life. My depression has been getting the best of me and I don't know how much longer I can keep going like this. I want to give up so badly. Just to be gone and pain free....


Lowering Remeron

Posted by Hertz in Almost Random, 10 April 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Reading back my 2013 entries, I describe feeling better and better when I lowered remeron from 15mg/d to 7.5mg/d. Things started going downhill after going even lower.
Right now I am on remeron 15mg/d and wellbutrin 100mg/d. My goal is to change the remeron dosage to 7.5mg daily and stay there indefinitely.
My plan is to take 7.5mg every 7 days for 2 roun...

I'm sitting here by myself, dreading going back to work on Monday.  On one hand, I'm looking forward to it because I need something to DO.  On the other, the stress is too much sometimes, and I don't want to be a part of it. 
But that's really only taking up of maybe 10% of my thoughts right now.  Lately, I can't help but think...


Still On Disability

Posted by Shmooey in Shmooey's Fort, 30 March 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Haven't posted an update in a little while-
I am still on disability from work (short term through their insurance policy), as of January 12.  I am not doing much better than when I started.  My Haldol got doubled from 7.5 mg to 15 mg and that helped with the auditory hallucinations a lot, but it doesn't help with my delusions or paranoid...


I Like Doing Short Tasks Done In A Short Time To Manage My Depression

Posted by Ixeua in Ixeua's Depression Management Series, 24 March 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Here's a list of things I plan to accomplish in the next 4 hours. I do not plan to grind in those 4 hours. However those 4 hours will be spent on a series of segments of high intensity tasks done in a short time to train myself to refocus.
The point here is to do something that requires you to train your ability to focus. Depression tends to worsen...
