Daily Report

 

Aside from an unneeded ten miler into town and back, I've done nothing but wallow. For those of you that don't know, I was diagnosed with depression a while back, and while it's mostly something I have under control, there are times when something just snaps. Though I guess this was less a snap and more a slid, and now I'm hiding out in my room feeling like utter shit, practically crying and I couldn't tell you why, while my housemates sound like they're having a great time downstairs. I suspect I'm going to stay here for a long time.

 

It isn't the first time this has happened, not by a long shot. Sometimes it's just a day-long thing, sometimes it can go on for a few weeks. We'll see where this ends up when I wake up tomorrow, though I'm not holding out much hope. I just wish I knew what made it happen this time. Usually if I know the cause I can actually do something, take steps to fix it, so to speak. I hate not knowing.

First, I completely lurrrved the Burn It Down video!  I've never even heard of the Sims.  That is a great workout song!

 

Second, I am totally jelly of your new toy!  It is bee-yoo-tee-ful!  Please be sure to post the pics you take with it :)

 

I'm sorry you're dealing with the downs.  I hope since you posted that you're on the upswing.  I'll be thinking of you!

At times, you become almost certain that you slabbed this hillside three days ago, crossed this stream yesterday, clambered over this fallen tree at least twice today already. But most of the time you don’t think. No point. Instead, you exist in a kind of mobile Zen mode, your brain like a balloon tethered with string, accompanying but not actually part of the body below. Walking for hours and miles becomes as automatic, as unremarkable, as breathing. At the end of the day you don’t think, 'Hey, I did sixteen miles today,' any more than you think, 'Hey, I took eight-thousand breaths today.' It’s just what you do.â€

Hey guys, just wanted to drop by and say thanks. Major thanks. I don't know how to express how much the messages of support have helped, just that they have. Things are still kinda messed up, but I'm getting there and hoping to be at least back on track enough to resume posting by the weekend.

Nikopol derives from the Greek "Nikepolis", which means City of Victory. You're the same as me Yeti! Most people can't handle our existence! Which is the reason we must continue existing! Ours is a life of trials and tribulations unmatched by the normal circumstances of others!! It is for that reason we must excel and prosper!! It is through that prosperity that we'll meet people like Ash and Swamps and the rest of the NF and it is for that reason we'll push on through our rock-bottoms to come out stronger and better for it! After all...

While I can only imagine how difficult this is for you, I know what Hero says is true.  I believe, like he says, that trials and tribulations really are opportunities to strengthen our character and to grow.  Hold onto hope.  Think about and remember the times when things are going well and use that to help pull you through this.  You have friends here that are pulling for you.  You've go this!!

Depression sucks. All I can really offer from experience is that it passes, but you already know that. Hang in there. Look at your food. Getting enough? How about sleep? Do something kind for yourself while you are isolating.

Hey yeti!

 

I am so sad to hear how you felt - and let me tell you: you're not alone. I suffer from this kind of depression from time to time (actually, I had another "episode" from 20-22th of September...), too. I know how bad you feel, and I am seconding M - just overcome the urge to hide and talk to people who are close to you, he is so damn right about the part with the surprising.

 

You can do it, my dear. Don't let your brain and some hormones knock you out, because ...

Hey Yeti, glad to hear you are better (even if not quite there yet)! You got this! *hugs*

 

Thanks Swampling! Things are definitely looking up more now, and hopefully it'll continue that way.

 

 

Hey there! Hope things start looking up for you soon!

 

Is the Nevis Range the same thing as Aonach Mòr?

 

Kind of. Nevis Range is on Aonach Mor, both the ski runs and the orange downhill track are on the main hill anyway.

Hero, seriously... You're amazing, you know that? And you're very, very right. Sometimes it takes a bit of a kick up the arse to see it that way again, but you're right. Thank you.

Thanks brader! That reminds of what I did in the last place I lived. I had a wall full of photos of friends and nights out and places I'd been, and whenever I got pretty low I'd just lie on my bed and look at them, remembering. The photo wall is being started from scratch this year, but there's no reason I can't write down some of the amazing things you guys have been saying and give them their place of pride. It helps a lot.

Heh, there's not much a mass amount of hugs can't help with, true. I think I might just have to do that.

Thank you for the advice. It's all too easy to forget or neglect the important things when you're feeling that low.

Thanks! It's kind of overwhelming and really quite inspiring seeing so many people coming out and saying that they know how it feels, and that it can be beaten. I did crawl out of my hidey hole eventually, and my housemates were actually really quite good about what had happened, surprisingly.

 

Heh, too right, I can beat this!

Yeti, I am happy you are back, and I am proud of you for crawling out your hidey hole. Hehe, yep, it can be surprising that your environment won't beat you up because of such things, can't it? *friendly nudge* So, we send you tons of positive energy to rip week #2 into tiny pieces and that your brain doesn't troll you again too soon and even if it tries, that you can b*tchslap it for this kind of disbehaving ;-)

 

And I highly recommend to follow M's advices ..argh, pieces of advice on this topic, since he has some experience with depressive people by accident ... *whistle, playing innocent*

 

One last word: if you are in a situation like this again, don't hesitate telling us. Although we might exist to you just as avatars and forum posts, we are still one Brigade (consisting of crazy people who are seriously nuts ...), and we're there to help each other, disregarding what kind of difficulty crashes in.

Day: ...um...

Time: 09:52

Conditions: SUNSUNSUNSUNSUN

Current song: Infected Mushroom - Bass Nipple

 

So I may have gotten a little kicked out of the site for a while...?

 

 

Catch Up/Daily Report

 

So the last time I was around here it was all doom and gloom and hiding and weeping into a pillow, but that's ok. It happens. Yes, I put a dent in my challenge because of it, but that's not the end of the world. Actually, it's a far smaller dent that I would have thought, considering. I reckon this should be done goal by goal for simplicity, so here we go:

 

Goal One: Pedal

Song: Redlight King - Something For the Pain

 

Surprisingly, I did get a visit to Nevis Range. ...but I wasn't on my bike. I was marshalling for a brutal race by the name of Tour De Ben Nevis. 72km of hilly hell for the poor mob of cyclists competing. I'm happy to bypass week one's visit on account of the weather was crap and too windy for most of it. And I've also found out that one of the major trails is closed due to the forestry commission doing whatever the forestry commission does at trail centres. I should be able to continue with the few trails that are open, so it's not so bad.

 

As far as the two long distance rides... One. I'm not sure I'd call it incredibly long distance, but it was fourteen miles and included one bastard of a hill, which takes care of the final part of this goal quite nicely.

 

So the DEX part of this goal went somewhat skew-if this week, but the STA part actually comes out at, what, two of three things done so... I suck at working out percentages. I'm trying to think of it as a wheel, so it would translate to two thirds, which is more than 50% and less than 75%. 65% maybe? I'll come back to that at some point never.

 

 

Goal two: Miles to Go

Song: Xavier Rudd - Breeze

 

Hah. No ML day for the Yeti. I wanted to count Nevis Range, I really did, but we took the van up. Heh, not quite a hike really. I did spend eleven hours on my feet, but most of that was either standing around or running up and down sections of Blue Crane to try and take pictures of the competitors. It's amusing how many of them mistook me for the official photographer when really I was just a nutty marshal with a camera...

 

Anyway. I did slightly worse on this one. Two suitably long night walks to relieve my varying stresses, but only one run. Well. Maybe we should call it a fast waddle? I jogged, then I fell over thin air and hobbled for a while, then I forgot how to use my legs entirely and just wobbled back up the hill. So that's three sessions missed, which is the limit of what I will allow for myself from now on, especially now the uni has started up the practical days again this year. There will be a mountain day this week thanks to them!

 

 

Goal three: Muscle and Iron

Song: The Animals - House of the Rising Sun

 

Surprisingly, this was my most successful one. I did actually have a weekly plan for last week, even if it never made it online. I even followed most of it. All the yoga got done, 95% of the bodyweight exercises got done, and I even spent a little quality time with my dumbbell and attempting to beat the hell out of my shadow. Gotta love shadow sparring...

 

So I think I can actually give myself an A for this week, because the missing 5% is kinda negligible. Yay? Yay.

 

There are some changes on the horizon for this. First off, that damned gym membership! I'm getting it tomorrow. I'm also investigating a potential Muay Thai class, and then taking swimming off the cards for this challenge. New tattoos and chlorine don't go together. If I can fit in a couple of sessions before I get it then brilliant, if not, no big deal. I'll think of something to replace swimming.

 

 

Life Goal: Be Pre-emptive

Song: The King Blues - The Future's Not What It Used to Be

 

Mostly a success, for a change. Admittedly I do need to catch up on the few lectures I've missed, but that's easy enough done. I reckon a solid B for this one, all things considered.

 

 

Shiny camera update:

 

I did promise... Only a few, because I haven't had a chance to take it into the mountains and really go for it.

 

DSC_0056-Copy.jpg?t=1379929576

 

What can I say? I like rocks. Saw this little one sitting on top of a boulder bigger than I am and decided to go for it.

 

 

DSC_0064.jpg?t=1379929625

 

I'm particularly proud of this one. The camera does macro shooting really well for a basic 18-55 lens, gotta say.

 

 

DSC_0178-Copy.jpg?t=1379929752

 

This is my mate Ronan going hell for leather into an insanely slick rock garden (just out of shot). I was stationed up at the last timed section, which happened to be a downhill trail. Lucky me!

 

 

DSC_0238-Copy.jpg?t=1379929858

 

This is Mike. Mike is one of the most amazing human beings I know. He's actually going pretty damn fast there, not that you'd guess from the shot. Amazing what a stable platform and a fast shutter speed can achieve.

 

There are a few more from that day on Facebook, if anyone wants a peek I made the album public and I think this here should link to where the pictures start. Hopefully that link works...

 

 

I'll come back later this evening with an update for today and yesterday, maybe even a few shiny new pictures, if the weather stays nice.

The brain trolling isn't fun, but I'm hoping getting myself properly set up into an exercise routine again is going to minimise the chances of it happening too seriously or too soon.

 

Heh, M does have some pretty sound advice, this is true.

 

Believe me, I won't hesitate. I've learned the hard way that keeping silent about these things is a bad way to go. You guys are amazing (and yes, crazy nuts, but in a good way :P), and I'm grateful to have such a great group of people at my back.

Seeing your pics is so amazing!  Looks like you and your new toy are getting to know each other ;)  Really great shots of your rider friends, and great macro shots.  I love few things in the world more than purple flowers  :)

 

New tattoos!?!  We're going to need snaps of those as well...  

 

Musical Note (hehe) -- I LURVE Xavier Rudd.  That is all.  :)

 

Have a great day!!

At times, you become almost certain that you slabbed this hillside three days ago, crossed this stream yesterday, clambered over this fallen tree at least twice today already. But most of the time you don’t think. No point. Instead, you exist in a kind of mobile Zen mode, your brain like a balloon tethered with string, accompanying but not actually part of the body below. Walking for hours and miles becomes as automatic, as unremarkable, as breathing. At the end of the day you don’t think, 'Hey, I did sixteen miles today,' any more than you think, 'Hey, I took eight-thousand breaths today.' It’s just what you do.â€

Wow nice pictures! Those are the kind of really well done pictures of a fun time that when you see them, it makes you go "Man! I wish my life was cool and fun like that!" haha.

 

I'm late on the uptake here. I didn't know what was going on until right now. I just wanted to say, first of all, that I'm glad things are looking up now. And you know how many of us share this struggle. Personally, if you ever need to wallow with someone, I'm here to listen (read). Looks like you did an awesome job getting through it and even accomplishing a bunch of stuff regardless of the depression. Yay for that!

 

I'm with Buggs, though. We're going to need pics of the new tattoo!!!!

Rawr!  Keep going!  You are doing great!  Good luck with the Muay Thai class!  It always looks so scary to me with the legs flying arms chopping.

 

Nice shinny camera!  Pictures look super awesome!  Rawrness!  :D
