Do The Right Thing You Get Hated, Do Crime & Drugs You Get Liked, Both Fake – The Real Conundrum

My son did this for me, this is 'Nice Shaun' I don't know if I can be him no more, it's too hard you know...I am just writing here, that's all

My son did this for me, this is ‘Nice Shaun’ I don’t know if I can be him no more, it’s too hard you know…I am just writing here, that’s all

By @ShaunyNews  The medication is slowly leaving my body, slowly. I remember the day Dawn and I sat down as two partners in our early 20’s and asking if ‘Old Shaun’ didn’t go, we would have problems. Honest to God, the day I decided to stop crime and taking heroin and what other crap I was on, the pain came. I already had a really bed left leg, suddenly the pain spread, I spent the next 10 years, even now a little asking “Is this Karma” I think when a person decides to better themselves good things should happen, for their family and kids, like millions Worldwide, I got the pain, over the 16 years or so I have had this pain it just gets worse. My decision to take the Dr’s poison is a hard gig, but if I don’t ‘Old Shaun’ comes back and its ‘GAME OVER’ Sadly this poison I am on has left me forgetting what I said 20 minutes ago never mind 20 years ago, the gaps are there, just, the good memories are there, the bad ones I let go, people say ‘You did this’ and I think ‘Who is this fool talking about’ YEAH, FIBROMYALGIA IS THE DEVILS DISEASE, YOU FORGET A LIFE AND BLOCK OUT THE BAD PARTS

I wrote this, guest blog, https://deliberatedonkey.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/murder-and-more-through-the-eyes-of-a-child/ I did this on July 2nd 2013, nearly 2 years now. My brother left a comment in there, he knows what I seen and told was the truth and he left a reply, I could only thank him for confirming I wasn’t making it up, with medication in me I could easily make a life up, I try not do that, we all try to do that right?

This shit sounds easy

This shit sounds easy

I am now at a crossroads, as the medication leaves my body, slowly, I find ‘Old Shaun’ returning. I threatened a person this morning, not my son’s or a blood relative, just someone that has a big mouth and best learn to shut up, I am not in the mood for games, I have lost enough with this fecking disease, I can’t lose more, I just can’t. So I am left in a state of stagnation I guess.

I re-read that article above earlier and it felt like a dream, like I was writing about a movie I had seen, at the time I had to change and edit it about 100 times, check the URL you will see what I mean. The Word ‘Murder’ was in the original draft. The deal was I had 2 months till publication, I did the first draft and was told ‘BRILLIANT’ But I kept going over it and removing content I knew I could not write here nor anywhere. I am writing a book, MY GOD IT’S HARD TO WRITE A BOOK! I will get there and much of what I wrote above will be in the book as I have said before.

As I lay here in bed almost screaming in many forms of pain the suggestion of returning to my old ways seems a road that would be easier. See hate and anger come easy, none of us need try, it’s a natural human emotion, to fight these emotions and be decent, even when there is no decent or good is hard, to stay calm when you can’t is hard. I am sitting thinking now “The old ways would make today easier” I don’t need money, that is not a reason, the reason is simple, the drugs and lifestyle is easy, it’s a comfort zone for me. I did unspeakable things only I know about, I had saying “The less anyone knows the less the police know” and it’s something I used to use in the old days

This song here reminds me of my criminal/drug past.
If I asked I got, if I said fuck off, people fucked off.
When I was a bastard I had respect, maybe fear, not sure.
I am losing respect due to this fucking illness, what the fuck.

I just have to say here, to go back the way because it seems easier as I sit when it’s hard is tempting. The writing would stop and a ‘New life’ would begin. I will become hate; I will demand respect and not act well if it’s not given. Often these days when I feel a lack of respect the ‘Old Shaun’ is in the back of my mind with suggestions I MUST deny. I can’t go back the way but what if that choice leaves my hands, what if going back is my only choice? I lose, I lose everything, but as I sit in bed here and type this I feel I have lost, lost big. I hope the lack of medication and the pain are playing games with my mind here, I am unsure, I know nobody cares, but I write, I am almost at 1 Million views, people choose to read, this is a personal write up here, intended for me to just let off some steam I am guessing, I hope so, I am no use to my partner 2o years ago, today

I am just ‘Some guy’ trying to exist and co-exist with the people around me. Lately the anger has been there. I dread ‘Old Shaun’ as all his old friends live less than a mile from me. So I guess I will have to see what help my family offer, what friends notice and say, how Dawn and my two sons react, all the while keeping in mind there are two young princess’s I must stay on this road for. One thing that has been going on for the last few years are certain people, all family, some blood, some sadly I have to pretend are alive, they talk to me like I am 20 year old, sadly the worst part and something that boils my blood are these idiots who say my name when I am not there. I don’t take that immature road in life, I say to faces, I am brave, I guess I expect everyone else to be the same.

I dislike on-line tough guys, people who threaten you from 5,000 miles away, or 5 miles away, makes me smile

One guy in particular, likes to act the ‘Tough Guy’ with words he wouldn’t utter in my presence. In reality his underwear would fill up should I look at him in the same room. What you do with that? I know what I used to do, but that was before. Do I deal or take another card? I figure what will happen will happen, sadly this person faked things and more and tells lies like I moan about my pain, a proper Charlie this guy is, if my Daughters suffer due to his words, what do I do? What would you do? I am asking anyone who is reading.

Maybe it’s the disease, maybe it’s lack of medication, maybe it’s ‘old Shaun’ stepping forward. Either way, I don’t want to have to deal with this pathetic human being, he is a known liar , fool and loner, it would be a huge liberty, but he is effecting my life, he needs to learn to use his lips better in-front of others. I don’t want to, I hate myself for even thinking what I want to do but we all have a line, my line is same as yours, it has a ‘Do not cross’ sign on it, and this person and a few others should know, I am disabled, are they taking a liberty with me, same as I would with them? I will find out and what will be, will be, it has to come to a head, or maybe he reads this and gets on with his own crap existence and everyone sleeps better?

A few months ago a friend committed suicide, he fought the same demons as I do, as we all do I guess, rest assured I won’t do that, but the Devil or what name you want to give him is calling my name, “Dining with the Devil” is FINALLY agreed the title of my book. I can only be a human being, I can only be flesh and skin like everyone. Temptation to be a bastard again with this pain would be so very easy. I write this but the words are coming from a place I don’t like or know any more. When you decide to sing, write, paint, any art form, you expose your raw soul to the World, that is just the way the shit rolls. So there it is, answers on a postcard to “Shauny, Edinburgh, Scotland, near the forth road bridge” I will get it ;-)

Living In Scotland. Living With Pain. Just Living. Thoughts? How Do We Define?

Life picture

By @ShaunyNews 

Do you know where you come from? What you represent?

Do you know where you come from? What you represent?

Sheep or loner? Often we do things because it’s “What other people do” or “What society expects from us” We tug along with the rest of humanity and often we do it blindly. Try stepping away, in your mind, from that truth, or lie, and ask yourself how you feel afterwards. I did. Try it, seriously. Is Scotland full of sheep who listen to the media and idiots who think they know it all, or are we a people who keep away from the herd and see clearly what we need to? Curious if ANYONE ever reads this, but more curious to get an answer from EVERYONE who reads it. Sadly by nature nobody will type a thing first. If one other person wrote like I am, many would follow. Trust me. But you won’t…What you scared from? I Just would like to know! I see family and friends on the same path as everyone else, I stepped away from that path and amazing things happened to me. Doors opened I had no idea were even there. 

So why do we stay with the flock Scotland? 

Again, I know I waste my time. Scottish people I guess are as sceptical of social thinking of them than any other populous of any other nation in our World. I used to think “Oh what will people think of me” Now I don’t even ask. I just do. I freed myself from ‘Something’ No main stream God was involved, no religion was involved I read no books for guidance. I hate to talk about my Disability. Sadly many of you, yes you, will define me by my actions and words. I don’t care, so why do you? :D

See we are all on a journey in life, the mass percentage have no idea they are on one, they wake up, have a shower, go to Work, come home, make tea, eat tea, sit down, watch TV, go to bed, have sex, wake up, have a shower, go to work…….. You get my point. I live in utter agony BUT I AM NOT ALONE. Many who read this are sore or ill or dying. I see a World around me of sheep. I see it more in real life than on-line. Many who really don’t fully understand the Internet will not understand what I am saying here. Bonds I have made 20 years ago, 15 years ago, 10 years ago, 5 years ago, last month/week, today and/or tomorrow are still there on-line. Sure we lose people but that is life, that happens no matter where we take our minds. Lately I have started to write, nearly 2 years now, I guess I am the Author of my own being these days. I am almost narrating my own life as I learn to live. Make sense?

I am writing where I am going

I am writing where I am going

I guess I am a free soul, I am not trapped by anything. I was on HEAVY medication till 4 days ago. In the last 4 days I have had less medication in these 4 days than I did in 12 hours of any given day I was on them fully. I came off a few weeks back to the heavy levels, I only really shared it a few days ago. I feel awake now. I read a lot of what I did when I was pumped with POISON the Dr gave me and some made sense, some never. I took a choice to take no drugs and live no matter. I don’t want a groundhog day existence, I want an existence where every living breathing moment I learn. I could not sit for one second and think “I know it all” because I don’t and neither DO YOU. You don’t. you think you do, you don’t 

Many will read this and think “Is this aimed at me” Let me explain something to YOU. If you read this and thought “Is this aimed at me” then the answer is “This is aimed at you” BUT I never aimed at anyone, I aimed nowhere and at nobody. So if you thought I meant you, then look in the mirror, be honest and ask why you thought I meant “This was about you”

BE YOU

Many deny themselves a true life because they are scared of the hurt that always comes when you REALLY LIVE. I used to turn my back on love and friendship because I was once scared of losing. I didn’t like myself for that. So I changed, I became Shaun, free from medication, pain, loss, worrying, gossips, hate and all that hits us in life. Take hatred. I know many who feel hate, they take a person’s words and feel hated, I ask you to not take that hatred on board. Don’t become what others want you to be. Be you!! Love and take the loss and hurt when it comes. The reason I did this is I realised I am different first of all. I came to the conclusion I am ‘DIFFERENT’ I have changed, but you know, I LOVE WHO I AM NOW! I am happy, blessed in the sense I have feeling(s). I feel, I love, I breath at my own pace. I observe our World now, I write about it, it has become my ‘Art Form’ See when you do ANYTHING that others can’t for WHATEVER reason, inability, hatred, confusion whatever! You become fear, hate, worry, gossip and rumour driven. 

I am free from all that now. I ask simply. Why can’t you be free? What is stopping you? I had one person tell me “I Work for a living unlike you” BEHIND MY BACK, lol. Yeah a person said this about me. I heard about it and smiled then I became sad. That person thinks I sit and pretend to be nothing and take what the World gives me. I feel sorry for you if you feel that way. I want Scotland to be a free country from the British Union. It is my ‘Art’ right now. It is what I research and write about. I write for my place in Scotland for a group of like minded people http://www.scot2.scot/ have a look for your area there. I write for and about West Edinburgh here https://www.facebook.com/pages/scot2scot-Edinburgh-West/361924177307818  So for anyone who thinks ‘Shaun lives for Shaun’ please, think again. I also run this page here for others who suffer, many less, many worse than I suffer, but I have to try and help everyone https://www.facebook.com/groups/699321140156812/ That is my page for ANYONE with any Chronic illness, this is an illness or disease that you will have for life or that will control your life. So please, never say “Shaun only talks about Shaun” to me.

Where did you learn how to be a person? From and by whom taught you?

Open your feelings, talk, be you. I know family and friends who I can’t speak to on the phone for over 2 minutes, they hide from feelings. I let them be. Like me, like you, they will find who they are. If it means they never show or allow feeling in then that is sad, not “That person is sad” It is sad in the term, unfair. But I can tell you unfair, I got a life taken from me. Did I sit and feel sorry for myself? No! I ran a football club for nearly 10 years, worked with kids for free all these 15 years I was in football. I am not showing off, I wouldn’t and couldn’t do that. All I am saying is, people like to assume, presume and guess with gossip also. So knowing the facts about life will help YOU become you and not the society made version you are told to be

Try it, please. Allow opinion, accept opinion, even if you don’t understand or believe in the opinion. Don’t get all worried about things you can’t change either. Don’t live in guilt, I used to be guilt but in reality is there anything we can do about the past? No, there is nothing. So what I have learnt and just recently as I wean of this Dr’s poison is “To be Shaun” But always look to others feelings best I can. As I come off my poison fully the pain will cripple me, literally cripple me. But I will fight it, not to point score or prove points, but for a Woman I love always. For 2 guys I have watched growing in to men and more so for two wee lassies (Little Girls out side Scotland) 2 wee lassies who are starting to be aware of what and who is around them. I MUST with the help of my partner make sure these 2 wee special princess of mine get to understand the World the same as their big brothers. I have to do that, I will never judge my kids nor show hate. Parents don’t do that, often with one of my sons they see anger, where in-fact it’s ‘Dad trying to teach’ I was that age once so I know what to look out for, lol

There is no book on 'Parenting' or being a good 'Partner' - We learn as we grow, or we lose!

There is no book on ‘Parenting’ or being a good ‘Partner’ – We learn as we grow, or we lose!

Life is precious, I don’t waste moments, I keep them. My Mum recently remarried, that was a moment, I keep it where it should be kept. Same as all moments. I smile and live and be free from the shackles of what life expects and more to what I ACCEPT. Live guys and gal’s, we have no other choice. You may be happy at 20 years old, but please know choices you make aged 20 will define where you are at age 40, I am told my one of my parents “What you do at 40 will define you when you are my age” I am lucky to have that wisdom around me. See that is what it is at the end of the day, we surround ourselves with people we can be ourselves around. We can relax with people we know care about us. Often it is not blood related, but that is fine, as long as you surround yourself with people who will mould you moving forward in life. I tried my best with my sons with my Partner and we nailed it, 2 amazing lads. Now we have the PRIVILEGETO DO IT ALL AGAIN WITH THE GIRLS. I CAN’T WAIT!!! :-)

All I said above applied to you, anywhere in our World and whoever you are wherever you are and all in-between 

Learn to smile, and mean it :D

YOU MUST WATCH THIS. I got sent this by my son on Facebook, not thinking it would be anything I hit play. My Jaw dropped. I then started the song again, closed my eyes and I could hear Bob Marley. I mean I heard him. I then went onto You Tube and listened to Bob Marley singing this song and I could not tell one apart when I played one and not knowing what I was playing, who was singing. This is mind blowing. This man should be bubble wrapped and sent around the World to tell the exact same story of our World Bob Marley did himself. This isn’t just a guy who kinda sounds like Bob Marley, this is a gift and WOW, you will be WOW also, this is just extraordinary this, please enjoy !

Bob Marley: He had this idea. It was kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you could cure racism and hate ? literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people’s lives. One day he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, gunmen came to his house and shot him down. Two days later, he walked out on that stage and sang. Somebody asked him “why” he said: “The people that are trying to make this world worse are not taking a day off ? how can I? ? Light up the darkness.

Erosion of free speech? David Cameron pledges to ban Snapchat and WhatsApp

Our freedom's are being taken slowly

Our freedom’s are being taken slowly

By @ShaunyNews Via: http://rt.com/uk/221879-surveillance-whatsapp-facebook-snowden/#.VLQ1ibzN3WU.twitter

More rubbish to make us ‘Safer’ from ‘Terrorism’ This is happening in the USA at a steady rate, we are now seeing it all over Europe. India just last week cut many social media places. The reasons was “Safety from Terrorism” So I ask simply, what measures will Westminster go to in a desperate attempt to make us scared and feel safe? Way I see it is simple, if terrorists are going to be evil and kill innocent people they will. God willing they don’t, but how does stopping an App JUST in the UK help this? I don’t think it does. There is a bigger story behind or following this story

PM David Cameron may block encrypted messaging platforms Snapchat and WhatsApp if the Conservatives win May’s general election, as part of the party’s agenda to bolster surveillance powers following last week’s terror attacks in Paris. During a meeting with Britain’s security chiefs, the Prime Minister pledged to halt the use of communications platforms that can withstand snooping from security services who are in possession of a warrant.

Such software applications focus on popular messaging and social networking apps that deploy encryption techniques to protect users data. WhatsApp, Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime, which encrypt information in this manner, could all be targeted by the Conservatives’ proposed policy. Cameron also pledged to revive the Tories’ much-criticized “snoopers charter” to aid security officials in monitoring online activity.

Why?

Why?

In April 2014, the European Court of Justice ruled against the introduction of the Snooper’s Charter, warning it would culminate in privacy rights violations. The Court outlined a more moderate data retention program that would aid criminal investigations. But in early July it emerged the government was seeking to push through emergency legislation, which would flout the Court’s judgment and re-legislate for the blanket retention of data.

The snooper’s charter subsequently caused a rift in government, however, after it was blocked by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on the grounds it posed a risk to civil liberties. Home Secretary Theresa May accused the Liberal Democrats of “outrageous irresponsibility” for blocking the legislation at the time. Speaking on Monday, Cameron asked whether a platform of communication that is inaccessible by state authorities is wise.

In a climate of heightened mass surveillance, firms such as WhatsApp have remained determined to continue offering encrypted services. Public awareness about the importance of encryption mushroomed in the aftermath of former NSA computer analyst and whistleblower Edward Snowden’s disclosures on NSA and GCHQ mass snooping. Civil liberties groups warn attempts to limit the use of privacy tools under the auspices of protecting national security are a violation of citizens’ privacy rights. Privacy rights advocates say encrypted platforms are important tools for campaigners and activists.

In October 2014, Parker Higgern, an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, emphasized the importance of maintaining such privacy tools in an era of mass surveillance. “It’s essential that the use of encryption, anonymization techniques, and other privacy practices is not deemed a suspicious activity,” he said. “Rather, it must be recognized as an essential element for practicing freedom of speech in a digital environment.” Campaigners say encryption can also help victims of criminal activity and those in oppressive regimes to remain safe and secure.

Where does love exist in a World of hate?

1176-good-vs.-evil

By @ShaunyNews

b4b189fb60eb0fbcd07819e01f37e50bI know I do a lot of these kinds of articles/blogs, whatever. I am aware I may repeat myself or repeat a song, it is a process I am going through, same process we all go through. Lately ‘Events’ out of my control have taken my mind to a place I found hard to explain or find a reason for at first. Having Fibromyalgia makes it harder for many of us. I see love all over the place, the love we see on the big screen or a music video, whatever and right away I think ‘Is this real’ or ‘Does this level of love actually exist’ I love my partner as much as a man could and I feel the love coming back the way, BUT! This love I see elsewhere, I WANT! I want that, I am on a quest to find it, so if you can, help me, let’s have some fun with what is still a Taboo subject to be fair.

Now to give you an idea of this ‘Love’ I see and question I will use a music video, John Legend, All of me. This is exactly the kind of love I am meaning. The woman in the video is his wife, so I ask is it natural or is it for the camera. The song is just WOW I love the lyrics the meaning and the part of my body it effects and how it makes me want this love, let me know what you think, lyrics are included

I have said many times, for a man to show emotions in Scotland is “No-go” It is a Scottish thing, it is what it is and for people, guys like me I used to find it difficult to open my heart to the World and my own World, these days I don’t care, I know who I love and who loves me back for being myself. I don’t understand people who care what others think, I have said this before, it’s boring, but true

Then we turn the coin around and we see Evil, Hatred, Gossips, Bad people, people who sit at a computer and try and get people to be as sad as them. I learnt a while back we can only be hurt, annoyed, angered or any other emotion in this category should we choose to be. We can be offended through choice guys, but in the end we can choose to delete, move on and refuse to be offended right? Surely

319127

So to sum up, where is this love, I want it, I want to hold it, feel it, look it in the eyes. The love I have with my partner, like many of you is the same, it’s real. Sadly many couples, married or not live together, cheat on each other and hate each other, I don’t know about you but I just couldn’t live that life. For me ‘Happy’ and ‘Smiling’ are the two key ingredients in life, in love if we are friends with our partners it makes the relationship easier

Anyway, what y’all think? I don’t know how many this will reach, ShaunyNews just opened again yesterday. If it reaches you I would love a comment, I value others thinking, always

More love, less hate

‘Blair may face war crimes charges’ – Liberal Democrat peer

Well Well Well

Well Well Well

By @ShaunyNews Via http://rt.com/uk/220539-blair-war-crimes-iraq/ and my own words and other links

Well for many a year we the people have asked the question “Should Tony Blair be charged with War Crimes” and we must add in GWB fron the US of A. These 2 committed crimes that nobody gave them permission to do. They went ahead and invaded Iraq when the entire planet was pleading and demonstrating they shouldn’t. There was a movie about what may happen here in the video below. I think they, Blair and Bush should be tried for an illegal war. Lets see where this one goes. Watch this space. More to come

The Trial Of Tony Blair
Via Slyfox [King of Fools] Channel 1 and Channel 4 UK on You Tube

Tony Blair may face war crimes charges arising from the findings of a public inquiry into the role Britain played in the 2003 Iraq war, the House of Lords has been informed. Lord Dykes of Harrow Weald, a Liberal Democrat peer, claimed the publication of the long-awaited findings of Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry into the Iraq war had been delayed to drag out the anguish of the ex-Labour Prime Minister. Speaking in the House of Lords on Tuesday, Dykes said the continued delay of Chilcot’s report was an“utter and total disgrace.” “More and more people think it is some kind of attempt to prolong the agony for Mr Blair facing possible war crimes charges,” he added.

At one time, Blair was one of Britain’s most popular prime ministers. But in the wake of damning allegations stemming from the 8-year war that blackened his political legacy, the former prime minister turned Middle East Envoy and business consultant is reviled by many in the UK. Reflecting on Britain’s war in Iraq, Blair recently told Vanity Fair the invasion that he and US President George W. Bush pushed for was followed by a “long and hard and brutal and bloody” battle that was far more difficult than anyone had anticipated. He insisted the problems that currently plague Iraq are “huge,” and denied they have been aggravated by the brutal war his administration presided over.

Former British Foreign Secretary Lord Douglas Hurd

Former British Foreign Secretary Lord Douglas Hurd

Lord Douglas Hurd, who held the position of Conservative foreign secretary between 1989 and 1995, warned on Tuesday the Chilcot report’s delay was no longer related to “mere negligence” and had become “a scandal.” Addressing the House of Lords, Hurd said the delay of the report – which was originally due to be published three years ago – now held alarming national implications.

A national scandal

The last official public hearing relating to the Chilcot inquiry occurred in February 2011. The primary reason for the delay in publishing the controversial probe’s findings was thought to have been related to conflict between the US State Department and Whitehall over declassifying confidential and potentially incendiary communications between Blair and then-US President Bush.

The communications in question related to the period prior to, during and after the Iraq war. On Tuesday, however, Lord Wallace of Saltaire confirmed negotiations over the publication of these conversations had come to a close. Wallace, a government minister and Cabinet office spokesman, said if Chilcot’s report wasn’t released before the end of February, it would not be publically disclosed until after May’s general election. He added the inquiry was independent of government and the report’s publication date was a matter for Sir John Chilcot, who headed the inquiry, to decide.

Wallace emphasized it would be inappropriate for the findings of Chilcot’s inquiry to surface in the immediate run-up to the general election because Gordon Brown’s government had previously committed to allow adequate time “for substantial consultation and debate of this enormous report when it is published.” The colossal one million-word document is expected to contain details relating to more than 200 Cabinet meeting discussions.

Lord Hurd heavily criticized the report’s extended delay, warning the British public deserves answers.“This is not something of trivial importance. It is something of which a large number of people in this country look anxiously for truth,” he said. But Lord Wallace responded, insisting such delays were “not usual” for an inquiry of this nature.

Referencing other delays in publishing similar reports, Wallace concluded the Chilcot inquiry examined nine years of British foreign policy as well as military operations in Iraq, so its length was not surprising.

Transparency concerns

Labour former Attorney General Lord Morris of Aberavon argued ex-PM Gordon Brown, who set up the inquiry, had pledged that all UK documents, excluding those that posed a risk to national security, would be released. Morris inquired whether Brown’s vow would be honored and demanded a concrete indication as to who would be responsible for presiding over the report’s publication parameters post May 15. Lord Wallace said all relevant documentation had been examined as part of the probe, and discussions regarding which documents should be made public had been completed.

These 2 committed acts of war that were not allowed. They did it for money and profit. They are going to get what is coming to them....

These 2 committed acts of war that were not allowed. They did it for money and profit. They are going to get what is coming to them….

In addition to US-UK tension over the publication of potentially inflammatory Bush-Blair conversations, a shortage of staff is thought to be central to the delay of Chilcot’s report. Speaking in the House of Lords, Wallace said Chilcot’s team lacked sufficient manpower to sift through the enormous piles of documents required. Draft reports of the Iraq war inquiry that surfaced in December rattled Britain’s establishment, with senior Whitehall figures battling to sanitize its findings. One well-informed source told the Times that the report’s findings are far more scathing than expected, and have prompted a legal firestorm in the heart of the British establishment.

20131010_232018Hey, happy new year to you all. I hope you had a good festive period with family. I hope 2015 brings you ‘Love & Happy’ Many of you I used to speak to all the time, many of you I spoke to a lot when I stumbled onto WordPress, and I REALLY miss speaking to you all. (Yes, even you) I have re-opened ShaunyNews because I want to do personal articles like this here: https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2015/01/04/a-message-to-the-world-my-world/ I done that on AceNews tagged as ‘Personal Story’ but I need to do these blogs here. I have a LOT of regret about you and I fell out, so! With  it being 2015, I am older and wiser, like you, I offer an olive branch to you all. Many will snub my attempt to try and connect again butt I understand fully. I am human, I am medicated, often in the past the pain and/or the medication spoke for me,

I run a few Facebook groups, small but plenty debate. I like to challenge my mind when writing so I gurss it’s better doing it here. I am 30,000 views away from 1 Million. I closed this site down with these figures, proving it’s noy really all about numbers, quality over quantity.

I suffer from fibromyalgia - Made this group

I suffer from Fibromyalgia – Made this group

Suffering from Fibromyalgia is really awful. This is what the illness/disability is http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Fibromyalgia/Pages/Introduction.aspx < That there is the official Scottish NHS (National Health Service) I started the group for others, I found talking to fellow sufferers a really good way to go. I can help people who are new to Fibromyalgia that is a very low key disability in the sense Dr’s struggle with it, many don’t get the help they truly need. I was lucky in the sense my last Dr from 5 years ago was a ‘Chronic Illness Doctor’ So that helped at the time and helps now as my new Dr is friends with my old Chronic illness Dr. If YOU have ANY Chronic illness PLEASE come on in, we help and get helped.

The Celtic Network, Website and Facebook page

This is where I am fortunate enough to be able to do match reports, team articles, tactics, formation blogs and player focus articles. I love the trust the Editor has given me because of circumstances a year or so ago, maybe more. I had JUST had to stop being a DJ in the club my Mum works in, I loved it, I was out there, mingling and speaking to people, making new friends, was sore, broke my foot a few times, but the social aspect I lost. The hardest was losing the ability to be a football manager (Soccer) I did this from age 23 or so when I had to stop playing due to a snapped leg. I was devastated, my social life was GONE. I took to Social media, had never done it before, this was 4 years or so ago, due to pain and medication I made many enemies, slowly people see I have my mind back, Celtic fans are the Worlds best so there is never a problem. Here is the Website I write with others: http://thecelticnetwork.com/ I love football, I was a rubbish player but decent manager, nothing beats being involved, so I am very lucky my editor gives me a good run at most topics I want to write, from time to time he has to reel me in for my own good, great man he is, this is the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheCelticNetwork/

Disability, being alone and this ‘Spirit of Christmas’ issue

christmas-tis-the-season-jolly-facebook-timeline-coverBy @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

I know, I know, It’s Christmas and I probably should be on my sofa chilled out with a beer after Christmas dinner. Well sadly I can’t because of pain and all that amazing Jazz plus I don’t drink. What I suffer from is Fibromyalgia and ‘Fibro’ doesn’t know Christmas day from Pancake day it just keeps giving pain that is unbearable, the effects of Parkinson Disease and also Motor Neuron Disease and other really harsh disabilities like MS and ME and more. So for me I loved the day, loved to see my kids open presents and be with my Son, his partner and my Partner with my oldest son coming late with his partner

Fibromyalgia makes this time of the year almost impossible for people with made up invisible not hurting disabilities, disabilities that people in your life know more about than your Dr, I say that as it’s what society tells us, I find it strange that you often have to be in a wheelchair before someone will understand why you can’t visit them, I know people are dying, I know people who have died and people who have lost so this is where my own personal guilt comes into play, but as I am told by almost everyone, don’t think this way. Here are our symptoms: http://www.fmnetnews.com/fibro-basics/symptoms

Pain All Over – People describe fibromyalgia pain as deep muscular aching, throbbing, shooting, stabbing, or intense burning. Muscle groups used the most may hurt more. In addition, the severity of regional pains can make your fibromyalgia symptoms worse. The pain is unimaginable if you don’t suffer Fibro. This is the part that many can’t live with and we see suicide happen. The pain is very hard to describe, the best I can do is ‘All over toothache’ others have other ways of explaining the pain, for me all over toothache pain is what I feel. I feel like I have JUST broken several bones or snapped muscles, but it is only all day every day :D so it’s cool really. Many stay depressed and suicidal, I have been there and back, lost friends and family over it, all this  b@stard illness does is take from us all. 3% of the World’s 7 Billion populous suffer from Fibro. In the UK we grade it 1 to 10. Many are 2/3 just having pain in one area, I was 10 and left the pain clinic as it was pointless but I still help the pain team with sitting and speaking to Dr’s and Pain experts from all over the World at the Ashley Ainsley Hospital in Edinburgh, it has a few large halls that sit a few hundred or more. So although I suffer I spend more time helping others. It’s the old adage “To help others is to help yourself”

Fatigue – Exhaustion can be one of the most incapacitating fibromyalgia symptoms. You may feel as though your arms and legs are weighted down by concrete blocks and your body may be so drained of energy that every task requires great effort. I can be wide awake then *PING* Sleeping or sleepy. Heavy dry eyes, can happen an hour or 2 after a good sleep or at night. So too much sleep and not enough sleep. A pain it is, waking early and sleeping early is all our goals but if we are in agony and it’s 3am we have to just deal with it. For me this is the most annoying probably. I think if I fix this (Like now) for good I will live better. But I am at the mercy of Fibro

Sleep Difficulties – It’s not just about falling asleep. Repeat arousals prevent you from reaching deep, restorative sleep, so you wake up feeling as though you have been hit by a Mack truck. An overnight sleep study may show symptoms of repeat arousals, but a specific sleep disorder may not be found. For the past 5 nights I have been asleep early and up early, BRILLIANT!!! Before and I am sure it will come back I am up a day, down a day, I am missing half my life sleeping. That hurts when you miss family as I do. This is the single most difficult one that none of our families can understand and all we really try to get them to get.

Brain Fog – Trouble concentrating, retaining new information, and word-finding are common fibromyalgia symptoms that seriously interfere with daily functioning. You may be easily distracted and this symptom appears to correspond to the severity of pain (as though the brain is consumed by the pain, limiting your ability to perform cognitive tasks). This is the Parkinson Disease area of the disease. I can be talking and half way through talking *GONE* :D What I was talking about just vanishes, with friends/family it’s ok as they remind me, with strangers it’s embarrassing and I don’t like that bit. I tend to just not talk much now to strangers unless it’s email or type chat. Just makes it easier. This is the one thing (Pain aside) we all hate, I have to leave notes on my PC/Laptop/Phone etc for things like “Go to the toilet” or “Take Medication”

Morning Stiffness (Now Now :D) – You may wake up to enhanced muscle soreness with fibromyalgia, but you probably also feel more stiff than usual. The cause of these muscle symptoms is unknown, but warm water and gentle stretching usually help alleviate them. I can’t move much for an hour after awakening. Often I need a cup of tea and medication before I can go about my day. Sometimes I just have to get up and walk like I am made of cardboard in agony. Also amazing fun, lol

Muscle Knots, Cramping, Weakness – No matter how much you try to relax your muscles, they may feel tense. Many contain rope-like knots called my ofascial trigger points, making you more susceptible to muscle cramping and weakness.The pain of fibromyalgia may also be a source of muscle weakness. These are very similar to Motor Neuron Disease, I get this 24/7, my hamstrings, calf muscles are worse but anywhere we have muscles/tendons etc sufferer friends and I get pain a if there has been a partial tear in any given area, go to the hospital, get a scan, all good. Very hard to diagnose us, but they hooked me up to electrical nodes and made pain happen by pulling and pushing my muscles all over, it showed increased pain activity so proving the pain was there

Digestive Disorders – Constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, gas and bloating, irritable bowel, and nausea are found in roughly 40 to 70% of fibromyalgia patients. Acid reflux and a slowed digestion are also common. If you take strong pain killers it’s important to take anti-acid tablets or you will ruin your insides badly.

Headaches/Migraines – Recurrent tension headaches or migraines are present in 50 to 70% of fibromyalgia patients. Headache symptoms are usually rated as severe, occur at least two times per week, and often have a migraine component. This head pain is partly due to trigger points in the shoulder, neck, and head muscles. I get thumping headaches daily and medication does very little, laying down in bed can be the only treatment

Balance Problems – Balance confidence is greatly reduced in people with fibromyalgia. Walking patterns are altered and the odds of falling are increased. I have feel a few times now, once I slipped and knocked myself out in the hall, woke up in Dunfermline Hospital, great fun! lol

Itchy/Burning Skin – Your skin may look normal or it may have itchy red bumps similar to hives. Burning pain, similar to a bad sunburn, is also common in fibromyalgia patients. I personally get ‘Burnt Skin Syndrome’ where it feels like you are in an oven

Other Strange Symptoms? – Do bright lights, sounds, or odours bother you? These symptoms could be part of your fibromyalgia. Learn more by reading our article, “Is Sensory Overload Part of Your Fibromyalgia?”

The reason I mention all this is because it seems the only time of the year any of us with Fibromyalgia or any kind of Chronic illness get approval from family is Christmas :D I don’t understand this. But overall we see people being nice to each other at Christmas. My oldest son was in the drive through at McDonalds yesterday and paid for the people in the car behind, about £5 or so but that is the ‘Spirit of Christmas’ When he told me I was so proud of him, that is EXACTLY what I brought Dean and Ryan up to be, decent young men, men who will notice others around them and know love and kindness

Now I don’t speak for myself I have a few Facebook groups I run and this one here for people with Chronic illnesses allows people to get help and it helps me. Knowing we are not alone helps greatly, I guess in any situation? https://www.facebook.com/groups/699321140156812/ I notice every Christmas people are smiling, opening doors for you, letting you drive out of a road or wherever. The spirit of Christmas is true there is no argument because come January everyone turns miserable again. During the festive period everyone is a saint but 2 weeks later we all go back to the grind and hatred starts again. I have always asked myself why can’t we all act like this all year? I know many through support groups in real life and online who find it impossible to be happy, some people are just sad and it’s an illness. It’s like a heroin addict, we jail them, why not help them? This is what I am getting at. We as a species have times when we help and show love and times where we all turn miserable, me included but to be fair I do try to laugh my way through life, we are here once so smile and live for God’s sake :D

Anyway, hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and all my friends in the USA are having a good day. It is past 7pm here in Scotland now so nearly over. For West coast USA it’s just starting, in Australia it’s already boxing day at that side of the World. I will sit and smoke a cannabis joint tonight as it is the ONLY thing that takes my pain away for any amount to of time. And as this is ‘Taboo’ series why is it people can get blind drunk, hit others, spread STD’s, cause havoc in city centre’s all over the World, lead to partners fighting, society allows this, society says ‘This is ok’ Yet if a person say? Family see me type “I will smoke a cannabis joint” I will probably be judged. This is how backwards our World can be. Our World is truly one big ironic pantomime for sure

Here, a song that I hate and a statement from a movie :D

Below is a 5 minute Audio/Podcast of me speaking. I didn’t want to write it because people are too lazy to read. So if you are interested just hit play and don’t move :D I loved my time here, but everything ends, everything stops, we all walk away at one point for whatever reason. I was getting frustrated and REALLY just stopped enjoying blogging. Someone said “Again?” to me, yeah! YAWN, AGAIN! lol I was in a lot of pain doing this. I wasn’t on medication and I was shattered.
