Looking Back Over My Shoulder Pt10 – The Final Instalment…..

Good Morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet. I trust today’s hump day see’s you as excited and apprehensive as it does me 🙂

I am these things because I have fast approaching, one of the biggest challenges ever set to me in my entire life and I hope that you guys are well and truly behind me and are no longer putting off any sponsorship or donations and are quite happy helping out in whatever way you can.

Don’t forget to follow this link and donate to my just giving page. You will be pleased to note that I have reduced the target down to £2500 as the entire walk has been scaled back to what I had originally started off with, just me and Archie and a very long walk…..! Yes there will be parts that I hope to speak to the media and yes there will be parts that I hope to walk with others but I think in all reality it it has now dawned on me that I am not the most important person on the planet (I know, hard to believe right?) and that I am trying to raise this money off of my own back so certain adjustments were felt necessary in order to feel more comfortable with my efforts I have also decided to travel each day so I shall be taken to my route in the morning and collected in the evening. The next morning I shall be taken back to the previous evenings collection point so NO shortcuts will be taken AT ALL!!!

Anyway, a short update for you there….

Back to me and the final instalment of my story.

Last time I left you with the words Breakdown at Land Rover. This was in April 2008 and I don’t mean a mechanical vehicle breakdown, I mean my own mental health deterioration.

Not the happiest time of my life for sure.

I know I have talked about bullying at work before so I shall not go into that now but suffice to say that at this point there was some of that and what made it so amazing is that usually I would never have stood for it and would have stood my ground and dealt with it.

This time I didn’t.

I crawled into my shell and became a hermit.

Unable to leave it because of anxiety and panic attacks.

And as I ignored my friends, food became my friend.

Not good food though.

Takeaway Indians, Chinese, Pizza, Fizzy Drinks etc etc.

Not a good part of my story for sure.

But it still happened.

During this time I had several small business’s of my own, including iPhone and iPod repair, Home Audio Visual Installation and a very lightweight version of my new Handy Man business.

This was all up until I broke my leg.

And that brings us to the start of my blog so if you are really interested in learning my then simply go to the home page and you will get my entire story there, celebrity and all…. 😉

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

    We will be all walking with you , at least in our minds ( …which is the way … for a few of us couch potatoes 😉 but maybe you can make a miracle and inspire us to get off our butts …finally ) 🙂
    Wishing you a good walk , and lots of exposure on the media for HENRY , and that the donations will start showering in – and those are the only showers we need from the sky this week – pretty soon 🙂

    And so the story comes full circle. Hope you’re excited about the upcoming walk. I suggest you look at it as an adventure rather than a challenge. Adventures are fun and exciting because of the unknown; challenges can create a negative perspective and increase stress and anxiety. Understand, you can’t fail. The distance doesn’t determine the outcome. Creating awareness for HENRY is the goal and you have already succeeded with this. Stay focused on those kids and your legs and body will take care of the rest.

    I look forward to following your ADVENTURE!

      Absolutely going to do that Doc. I love an adventure and not a challenge because that way I can enjoy myself totally and immerse myself in the whole event instead of worrying about meeting criteria of specific challenges.
      Don’t forget you can follow it on Facebook, Twitter and now Instagram….
      I just hope I can remember how to do all of those things!!

    Weather the weapon is food or alcohol or narcotics we humans are very very good at self-punishing when we find ourselves down. The great thing with you is that you found the strength to say enough, the help to put you on the path to recovery and the will to follow that path. You have earned everything you have and are today as you stand on the brink of your new adventure. I look forward to being part of it. Actually, I’m honoured to be part of it 🙂
