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…. 😉
Stay out of the fridge.
