A brief update.

Just a quick update to let you know I haven’t gone forever.

I initially pursued counselling on the 9th of January, a month later I had a single session/assessment and was referred to another counsellor. I was then on a waiting list until 2 weeks ago. It has taken me 5 months to gain counselling. It’s pathetic, I felt ignored. In my first session I was diagnosed as “clinically depressed”, however, I have had 3 sessions of 8 so far and it is going well.

I am in a new relationship of a month and it is also going well. Jo is extremely understanding and supportive, and best of all lifts & removes me from the mental state I have been wallowing in for months.

I have more work after a long drought and have been commissioned to design furniture for a school playground. I seem to be getting my motivation and confidence back, slowly.

The London Assembly reports etc. have all washed over me, I no longer have any interest in “that”, I have been doing my best at getting back to being me again.

What better way to get back to being myself than spending last weekend at Download festival @ Donnington Park. I could give an in depth review but I wont. All in all it was a great weekend away with great friends, great bands, scorching sunshine and far too much pear cider.
