A New Year and a New Beginning

It's been so long since I last posted anything significant that I didn't really know what title to give this.  Since being diagnosed back on Dec 2nd, I can't say I'm feeling any better.  If anything, I tend to wind myself up if I'm not careful.  Still chewing over the usual gumph and I SI'd again this week sometime.  It's been a good Christmas though and I've enjoyed myself on the whole - I had some really nice gifts.  I'm travelling home tomorrow as I have to sign-on on Monday again.  I'm planning on travelling back either on Monday afternoon or Tuesday to celebrate my birthday with my family though.  I think there are plans afoot to go out for a meal.   I'm wondering whether this year would be a good time to make a few changes in my life.  I've been a member of a club for the past 25 years and to be honest, I'm fed-up with it.  Leaving won't be easy, as I live only a spitting distance away.  Only one member bothered visiting me in hospital though so I don't think I'll be missed all that much.  I may join a depression support group which meets once a week on a Wednesday evening.  I need to find out about transport though so I'll ring when I get home.  (To be continued - when I can get my thoughts together.)

If you have been in the same club for 25 years, it might be time for a change,to try something new. I was a volunteer with a Habitat for Humanity group for many years. It is a good organization, but it felt good when I \"retired\" from it last year.
