Things that really piss me off....

Being disabled as i am, i constantly find that there are MANY things which piss me off. Please feel free to tell me if you agree with me or not. You may have some better examples that we should hear about. Don't worry if you can't think of any right now. When people say "no worries" in a desperate bid to sound trendy i hold my face in my hands. Most of the time when they use that phrase they're on the telephone (which is where they should be) i'd be far too embarrassed to talk like that. Another phrase which is used and is very embarrassing to hear is “say again". Erm, excuse me? Don't you mean "pardon?". You sound as if you're Del-boy Trotter acting like a right old plonker if you use that way of talking. Really!

I hate it when they call me “mate”, too. In fact, calling anybody “mate” (and they do) is so wrong in this day and age.
You ask a carer if the builders can stop making their noise and he turns around sharply and says “no Terry. They’ve got a job to do.” “but we’ve got lunch to eat. So have they.”In other words it’s “shup up Stynes, you’re whingeing. You’re disabled so you don’t count.” I hate it when you hear that kind of attitude.
Being woken up with someone shouting “heyy” at three o’Clock in the morning is something i complain about all too frequently now. My complaints go in one ear and out the other. All the time.

Mostly, it’s to do with the words they use and the way they use them.
Then there’s the time they vaccuum outside my front door when i’m trying to read. It’s always kept open to allow me to get in and out but they never do anything about the noise. I have to stop what i’m doing.
It sounds like i’m moaning too much but that isn’t the case. I just get on doing what i have to do.


  1. It's aggravating not to be able to control one's environment. It seems like it should be such a little thing but taken every hour of every day it is like the drip-drip of water torture. Earplugs, maybe?

  2. It IS a torture. The best way to explain it is if I let a bomb off in your house at 4am. Would you like it? I must admit I would. 😼

  3. The thing that irritated me most was when people spoke slowly, loudly and used little words to me. Not to me - at me.
    I haven't experienced that one in a while, but just the memory sends my blood pressure skyrocketing.

  4. I can imagine that would be irritating about the vacuum. My list is much too long to list. (lol) Hugs...RO

  5. A noisy environment can drive you nuts. Too bad we don't have a remote control that silences...well, people :)

  6. How are we today, Treey mate? going good are we?

  7. Don't blame you for the complaint about the hammering at lunch. If you have a certain time that the meal is served, the contractors should take a break then too so everyone can enjoy their meal.

  8. It bothers me when people say "No Problem" instead of "You're Welcome."

The battle against depression...

I remember, as a teenager, struggling with depression. These days i've got it under control by reading and reading. It's not something you enjoy having to deal with. It's an awful condition you have no control over. It takes over your life and makes it difficult to live with, making the most simplest of decisions a matter of life and death. These days it's known as an illness and more and more people get help from their doctor. Back in the s 70s and 80s you had to fend for yourselves although i'm sure that it was a condition you could get help for.The best man at my wedding has depression and i didn't even know ihe he has t, but it's a serious condition that you never really lose. You can deal with it though. I used to deal with it by going on long runs; by cooking;; by playing cricket; by spending hours cleaning out a room. There are other ways. You can take your dog for a walk, go fishing or strum your guitar. Just do something that is really active.…

Getting tired...

I've been a stroke survivor since Feb 2013. And anybody, who has experienced it for as long as i have, will say how tired you'd be in a really short space of time. That's why i don't encourage anyone to stay longer than 15 minutes when they visit me. I could fall asleep at anytime and not realise i'm doing it. Since i've had the stroke it's happened on several occasions. You have to understand that you've changed and you're not the same person you were.The hallucinations that follow are part of what happens when you have a stroke. You don't know what's real and what isn't. What's funny and what isn't. You actually laugh when it's not appropriate and are embarrassed that you did it. You have to say things such as "i can't help what i'm doing" and make people understand that it's not you that's doing it. Hallucinations are something you want to go away.There's something that won't go away when …

The legal process....

It's been a long time coming but my time in court is finally here. I've seen the paperwork to let me know that a decision will be made shortly. The highest judicial power in the land will make a binding judgement that all sides will have to accept as law and abide by it. For me to lose the case the other side will have to prove that i have zero mental capacity. I have to show that i don't. It should be a straightforward matter. Somehow, i don't think it will be. SALT have used dirty tactics for years to get their own way and i can't see them stopping now.I just want the right to make decisions for myself and not have them made for me. My mind is working perfectly. The ability to speak and walk has been taken away from me and there's nothing i could've done about that. I had a fucking stroke for heaven's sake. What it hasn't done is taken away my ability to communicate. Or to read. If the court's decision is to agree that my rights were fairly t…
