I WANT, I NEED, I WANT, I DEMAND – MONEY IS ROOT OF ‘ALL’ EVIL

My whole life I have seen Money, worse yet I have seen what money does to people, what money will make people do, people PRETENDING to love you for your money. I walked away many years ago from the ‘Money Chasers’ There is a HUGE difference between ‘Needing Money’ and ‘Chasing the illusion of Money’. I have seen blood spilled, woman hurt, families torn apart and worse because of ‘Money’. I have been poor and rich and all in-between, but I #ChooseHappy

Imagine you are poor, living in a flat somewhere with very little, struggling to pay the rent, struggling to feed your family, unable to have a big TV or fancy furnishings, unable to have a car nor pay for it’s upkeep. Well I know many like what I have just described there and they are happy, very happy. Yet I know people who make £100,000 a year or close to that amount, they are not happy. I have seen poor people get money only for it to destroy the happy they had, I have seen unhappy rich people lose it all and commit suicide, cause #Hate #Anger and #Fear in themselves and others, all over money.

The Beatles – Can’t Buy Me Love
Via TheBeatlesVEVO on You Tube

Money can buy MOMENTS, money can buy you a Wedding, a Holiday a new car, new TV, new sofa, Cable TV, Internet, you name what you want and money can buy you this, but the effects wear off, the honeymoon period ends and you are STUCK with the brain you had at the start with everything you thought you needed. I am not rich, but I am not poor, I am just happy with my lot I guess.  I have had people I love, and will keep loving actually visit people for MONEY or money reasons, people lie about it and all for money, it’s disgusting. My problem is I suffer from M.E. (Myalgic Mencephalomyelitis) + Fibromyalgia + PTSD and Psychosis and this may be the drugs or/and illness talking, or maybe I am having a moment of self-reflection, I can never tell, BUT MONEY CAN’T MAKE ME BETTER. But if you are reading this and you know me, and I know you, and we don’t talk to people because of Money or can’t admit WHAT YOU DO OR DID FOR MONEY, I ask you stay away from me and mine, because I actually know the harm money can do to everyone. I know people who won the lottery BIG!! Over £10 Million, they are now poor. I know people who won £1 Million and again they are again poor. They thought ‘Money’ could change the life they had, in most cases people came running to them when they knew they had money, only to leave them when the money was gone, I could share MANY stories, we all could if we were honest enough. I used to chase money, but I should have known better, I hate people who chase money, but AGAIN, the NEED for Money is different from Chasing Money

Love and happy can’t be bought for life, happy can be bought for a moment, short moment or long moment, but money can’t buy the joy of having Children, can’t buy love, can’t heal people with bad health. I had a sibling who had Cancer when I was a kid, there was a LOT of Money there yet no amount of money could save this person from Cancer, but they are still here, the drugs worked, the money was useless, I could share 100 stories. Look at what our Governments do for money and we all agree ‘It’s Sickening’, yet how many reading this chase money or know others who chase money? I found ‘Happy’ and be me poor or rich today or tomorrow, I stay happy. I was taught by both my parents to lose 3 emotions, I don’t know if they meant it, but they sure did, #Hate, #Fear and #Anger, when we lose these 3 emotions, WE LIVE, WE ARE FREE FROM EMOTIONS THAT CAUSE DISFUNCTION IN ALL AND ANY WAY. That is all. As always thank you to the person who helped me do this blog, typing is difficult, clarity of mind is very hard, so having the right people around YOU is key to Happy

MORE LOVE, LESS HATE

More Health and Education cash in Scottish Budget 2015-16 plans

John Swinney's statement to Holyrood was followed by a debate by MSPs

John Swinney’s statement to Holyrood was followed by a debate by MSPs

John Swinney is the ONLY treasurer in the developed World to have a balanced budget 6 years running, every penny has been used to make sure the life for me and my kin here in Scotland remains decent. The SNP are fighting London hard on many front’s. One day we will be free, we MUST vote SNP in the General Elections coming up.

John Swinney said he has put Scotland’s youngsters at the heart of his Budget plans, announcing extra cash will be made available to councils which make a “clear commitment” not to cut teacher numbers.

The Deputy First Minister said that in addition to the £41m already announced for such a commitment, he will make an extra £10m available. But he warned local authorities that any council which fails to maintain teacher numbers in its local area would have its share of the funding “clawed back” by the Scottish Government. He announced the move after the number of teachers fell last year, with the ratio of pupils to teachers in classrooms increasing slightly. This is “not acceptable”, the Deputy First Minister said.

After statistics published yesterday showed the NHS in Scotland failed to meet targets for treating 95% of accident and emergency patients within four hours, he also used his Budget speech at Holyrood to reveal more money for health spending. An extra £127m is being made available, taking the total additional spending on the NHS for 2015-16 to £383m, Mr Swinney said.

Scotland’s total health budget will top £12bn for the first time ever next year, with Mr Swinney insisting it is “real investment, not warm words, for our NHS”. He told Holyrood: “The health of our population and the education of our young people are two of the most important responsibilities of government and they are at the top of our priorities. “A vote for the Budget today will see an additional £127m of extra spending for front-line healthcare in our NHS. That will take our total additional frontline investment for 2015-16 to £383m as part of a total NHS budget in excess of £12bn, and every penny of that money will help our front-line services.”

He added: “The education of Scotland’s children is the key to both their future and to the future of Scotland. Our investment in schools and in teachers forms a critical part of this effort but we can and will do more.

“When sufficient funding is available to support the employment of teachers it cannot be acceptable that the numbers of teachers declined slightly last year and the ratio of pupils to teachers rose slightly. “To help ensure delivery of the teacher numbers commitment and in recognition of the general budget pressures authorities are facing, I am providing a further £10m for 2015-16 in addition to the £41m previously allocated to support this commitment.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Deputy First Minister John Swinney were in the chamber for the Budget debate

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Deputy First Minister John Swinney were in the chamber for the Budget debate

By @ShaunyNews Via http://news.stv.tv/scotland-decides/news/309137-budget-swinney-announces-extra-10m-boost-for-teacher-funding/

“In order to protect that investment in teacher numbers this total resource of £51m will only be available to local authorities on a council by council basis if they are prepared to sign up to a clear commitment to protect teacher numbers. Any council that does not make and deliver on that commitment will not benefit from that funding.” On teacher numbers, the Deputy First Minister said the local government body Cosla had so far been “unable to agree what I consider to be a fair and generous offer of Government support to deliver a good outcome for our children”.

He told them: “As a result this Government has no alternative, in order to protect teacher numbers and deliver the educational standards we want to see, but to make that funding available on a council by council basis if and only if they are prepared to sign up to a clear commitment to protect teacher numbers.” Mr Swinney urged councils to “make that commitment” in order to “deliver the teachers that our children deserve”.

Meanwhile, the extra cash for the NHS will establish a £31.5m Performance Fund next year to “improve quality of care and reduce waiting times”.

That money comes on top of £98m already announced to help health boards tackle the problem of bed blocking, which forces patients to stay in hospital when they are well enough to go home because the necessary care is not available. “Scotland’s health service will continue to have the benefit of a Government that supports it and that funds it properly,” Mr Swinney pledged.

He told MSPs there are still “too many people” struggling to pay their heating bills as he announced £20m additional funding in 2015-16 for making homes more energy efficient. This takes total spending in the area to £114m for the year, he said, arguing the cash will give “powerful impetus to our efforts to tackle fuel poverty and climate change”. There will also be £20m to go towards tackling educational inequalities and increasing attainment, while almost £4m will be spent on improving cycling facilities.

Teacher numbers

Labour’s Jackie Baillie said: “Whilst I am pleased that the Cabinet Secretary has engaged in discussion with Cosla about maintaining teacher numbers, it clearly is the case that no agreement has been reached and he has imposed a deal. “Now I think that’s a first – I think the concordat that he signed up to now lies in tatters.”

She said one local authority has pointed out that the cash being offered to councils to maintain teacher numbers is not enough. “The amount they would receive doesn’t even cover the advertising bill for new teachers,” she said. She added: “Our position is to maintain teacher numbers. The SNP of course promised to do just that, yet you have failed miserably. “We now have almost 4,500 fewer teachers in Scotland today than when you took charge.”

Ms Baillie was also critical of Mr Swinney’s spending allocations for health. “The Cabinet Secretary talks about the budget (for health) being over £12bn, what he won’t talk about is the IFS (Institute for Fiscal Studies) report that suggested there was a real terms reduction in health spending in Scotland,” she said.

Labour called for a £100m NHS front-line fund to allow hospitals to operate extended services on evenings and weekends, a £10m resilience fund to help areas facing an economic shock, and a Scottish Office for Budget Responsibility to scrutinise government spending. Ms Baillie said: “I am genuinely disappointed that John Swinney doesn’t appear to have listened to any one of our proposals. “There can be no denying the need that lies behind them. “It does however appear that rather than work together, if the proposal comes from Scottish Labour, the SNP will put party interests before the interests of the people of Scotland.”

Conservative Gavin Brown accused Mr Swinney of using his Budget speech as a platform for “creating a turf war with Cosla”. “We heard talk today of claw-backs, of penalties, of ring-fencing, yet just a few months ago, the First Minister in her programme for government said that this would be a great decentralising Government,” he said. “What was decentralising about today?” Mr Brown said his party’s two main concerns centred around LBTT and its impact on the housing market, and policies around business rates.

On LBTT, he said: “It is a tax on aspiration. It is an extra obstacle, making it harder for families to own their own home, and the eye-watering 10% rate still kicks in at £325,000 compared to £925,000 with stamp duty. “We’re concerned this will have a negative impact on the housing market.” He said Mr Swinney’s LBTT proposals are not “revenue neutral”, but in fact amount to a “tax increase”, making it impossible for the Tories to back the Budget at its final stage

South Glasgow University Hospital campus to be handed over to NHS Scotland

_77031463_77031456

By @ShaunyNews  Via: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-30987950

Good news for the West of Scotland and Glasgow this. Also brilliant to see GOOD MONEY being spent on the right things by the Scottish Government. Soon when Scotland free’s herself more from London we can achieve more of this. The SNP have made a promise to fight tooth and nail for the NHS and this is a good start. I know we still have a ways to go but in the end the people of Scotland will decide our fate. I know many think Tory/UKIP coalition Governments are a real possibility but so is a Labour/Greens/Plaid Cymru/SNP Government for the UK where Wales and Scotland will get more freedom from London, this is very possible also. It is in our hands peeps, let’s keep it there. No Tory, Blue or Red

Scotland’s largest hospital is due to be officially handed over to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The new South Glasgow University Hospital campus cost more than £800m to build and will have more than 1,300 beds. The health board said it had been delivered under budget and ahead of schedule.

The facility is due to open to patients in May. Construction work began in early 2011 and it has been the biggest building site in Scotland. The new campus will bring major changes to the way healthcare is delivered across the west of Scotland – with maternity, children’s and adult hospitals all on one site. The Southern General campus will replace the Southern General Hospital, Western and Victoria Infirmaries, Mansionhouse Unit and Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Yorkhill.

_80533456_crane

There will be space for 1,300 patients, mostly in single rooms, 29 operating theatres, and even a landing pad on the hospital roof, for rescue helicopters. In addition to replacing adult hospitals in Glasgow, the new South Glasgow University Hospital will incorporate a new teaching and learning facility and the Centre for Stratified Medicine and clinical research facilities. Up to 10,000 NHS staff will be based on the campus when it is fully operational. Building contractors, Brookfield Multiplex, are due to formally pass the hospital over to the health board later.

I will leave the title above, and say again “Majority of Americans WILL NOT debate these images” Many will dismiss them as fabrication, many will be too scared, some to dumb. I know a TON of American people and I love them as friends, they are switched on, they know what is REALLY happening in ‘Fascist’ and ‘Police State USA’ To BLINDLY say “America is not Fascist or a Police State’ is ignorance, but what is worse is to deny ignorance. So if you REALLY want to know what Fascism is what a Police State is, take SECONDS to read up on the NEW USA…

THE WORLD STANDS AGAINST ISRAEL SUPPORTERS – EVEN IN THE ‘USA’

~~~~~~~~~~

We must give peace a change, in the UK/Ireland we gave peace a chance. The Queen shook hands with the man (Allegedly) who killed her cousin Lord Mountbatten in a boat bombing in 1979. Martin McGuiness shook hands with the Queen of England. I thought ‘Progress’ as did Millions but many had a right to still be angry for the oppression England held over Ireland 3 Generations of my family ago. If we can find peace, a path to peace in the worst kinds of religious hatred there is, Catholic Vs Protestant in Ireland and Scotland then anyone can find peace. We gave it a chance. I speak to people from the USA Mainly and they say “Hamas can’t be trusted” I reply “Can you blame them for hatred?” 

 

Martin McGuinness, politician for Sinn Fein and the Queen give peace a chance and probably in the end saved thousands of lives - I am speculating. I have family, the 'Casey's' Did they want peace? You would have to ask them

A MESSAGE TO THE WORLD, MY WORLD

562440_10150895213902350_526362349_9771703_625620720_nBy @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews This is a news page but below I have tagged in ‘AceNews Personal Stories’ I am a writer now, sports reporter, published columnist and freelance Journalist in the making and moulding.  So here goes. “Shaun, you are changing” is what I hear a lot these days. I am not special in the sense I am above anyone, nor am I below anyone, I am changing, I have reached a place many won’t or can’t. The power of the love I feel today and yesterday and as day turns to night then day again, perpetual motion makes it stronger. I feel alone in the sense I am being taken on a journey of love and enlightenment. I have yielded temptation and turned to the opposite, However, for tempted meaning enticed or attracted, the opposite effect could be repulsion. For the adjective tempted, there is the opposite un-tempted, or even discouraged, so I am going with ‘Self Control’ I am in a place now many don’t get but I don’t expect anyone to get it. I do however hope the 5 special girls in my life try and understand. 3 are adults 2 are my Daughters both below 5 years old, they will love me as Daddy no matter

tumblr_lssepe8qLz1qddkhgo1_400

When you change and there can be many reasons for change, I won’t bore you with my reasons for change, let’s just say 2 things changed me, one is pain the other is medication. I am at the mercy of feelings I have no control over. Let’s just say I know who and why people tell me ‘I have changed’ I get it because I am that change, I became that change. My Editor Ian, my boss, he has helped me more than he knows, he is a very wise man and he has my back as I have his

When I was younger I so wanted to be a singer, I tried to learn the guitar so many times now my guitar has moved house and settled with a new family. Yeah we can still have a little fun. I am not a guy who will be mean to a woman yet I am made to feel this way, or am I? I feel both, what is right? what is wrong? The answer is irrelevant because come judgement day none of this matters, but we don’t stop living knowing redemption day is coming, no, we live, breath, smile, talk, love and try and care

wheres-the-love1

I live in a World now I feel so disconnected to I find it hard to define this World. We look and see evil all around us, yet individual acts of love and kindness exist should we choose them. Yeah, 1387537342we have choice, sadly many make choice out of not fear, but through the thoughts of others. I could say “Keeping up with the Joneses” but I would be wrong, yet close, people afraid to live and free themselves because a friend or loved one will judge, is that right? Are we to live worried and look to others for reactions to our actions? I don’t, I stopped being that guy. I became what I was indented to be. So I ask what stops you? Whoever you are, wherever you are. I asked for a stage once not long ago and I had 1,000,000 people, kind people, read what I write, that blew me away. In an instant I changed but the change is still happening.

When we lose we get something back in return. I will try layman’s terms more so for myself, your house gets broken into, you lose everything you have, but wait, your insurance gives you it all back, so in the end when we lose we gain something. I lost with the brutality of Satan himself but refused to bow at his knees, I took another path that has led me here, taken me to this spot in life, I will change more so YOU have the decision to make, not me. I talk to anyone I know or who knows me. I will go right ahead and change into what I am changing to, I don’t mean to hurt you, I could never do this, you said I changed, you were right.

1095045_10100432982666443_425973773_nPlease don’t deny me the change you don’t understand. I am love now. I left behind criminal life, I left behind idiots wanting to be the ‘The big guy’ This is not my place in life no more. I spoke with a well known guy a while back, he changed also. He said “Same tree, different leaves” and he was right

This, none of this is about me, it’s about ‘US’ and always will be. You are on your path, I am on mine, maybe one day our paths will meet instead of being parallel to each others.

I have my stage now, I have the audience I craved to tell my story. I am halfway through writing a book but have to change it often because the change in me is so fast and drastic, but it will be written in a way where I hurt nobody.

I live a life where as long as I know what I have done is correct, then I am happy. I have 2 little girls to help grow up and teach the same way I did with my two sons, they are amazing kids so my partner and I did good, now we must take these same values and bring two little girls up in a World where hatred, gossip, idle talk and more are the order of the day. My Job now as ‘Daddy’ are to make two wee girls understand choice is always there for them, then like their big brothers choice will be theirs to make, until that moment, we will help these two bundles of love grow. To you special 5 girls in my life, I love you for what you are not who you are, I love you, just you, I don’t pick and choose what to like or not like about you, I could but if I do I become someone else, see we have choices, love, smile, happy, yet often we, me included get lost in the middle of love and hate, many are stuck there for life, I am walking towards love and I don’t have a care in the world who judges me for choosing to be me 🙂 That is human instinct, I decided to leave that be, so can you. Just live and love and you will see a different world, a world I can see now, I am 41 now, not 21, I see through a man’s eyes but never looking back to talk to a confused kid who moulded me into the man I am today, why should I? He helped me get to this exact stage of my life and I love it, do you? x

THE HUMAN MIND, FEELINGS, EMOTIONS AND CHRONIC PAIN ‘IF YOU HAVE THAT’

B5gvYwuCUAQOfgC

Picture1By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

When you sit and try to define your purpose on this Earth when you ask who and what you are, we all do this. The irony is many will dismiss that they do this, so go look at that image above again, see it? When you are in a state of TOTAL feeling, at one with yourself and life and the universe, you care. When you care you hurt more, it comes with the packaging. I see so many people afraid to ‘Feel’ because they refuse to take on the burden that comes with it, that would be hurt or loss, whatever, you know? People refusing to go the full way and be true to themselves in fear they might get too close to something. I am not afraid of dying, I am afraid of dying now and leaving my partner too 8ea41f8ff202634e3ff7445fd86ae973 (1)soon. To get to that way of thinking an ‘Event’ must happen. For me the event happened in childhood and guides me now as an adult, in reality it is amazing, many call it God, I just call it amazing, superb, a blessing, lucky and other such words. When I say this to a friend who knows I live in utter agony they say “How can this be, you are Disabled and in pain” To get something we must first lose something. It can be the death of a person, the death of a habit, to forget someone or something, whatever it is, you need to lose before you feel what many like me do and see our World for what it really is, it’s a total hell hole in every sense of the word, but we do as individuals show and see act’s of love and kindness from others, but to gain we lose first, we must lose to get, for me it’s THAT SIMPLE, I was lost for a long time, it was lonely and hard, but all the time my partner and 2 sons were there, now here I am, smiling, happier than I have ever been, why? Because I lose BADLY. So not much else to lose here, so I love what I have and understand that, the pain will do what it will, so I choose life

Part 2 – The end…. Both filmed in my City, Edinburgh, Scotland

We all deny our own existence, many of us are wide awake and watching, listening and learning, I am one of these guys. I had a friends, 17 years a friend may I add, she is from Columbus120380-118513 Ohio in the US of A. She said “Shaun has changed” She wasn’t being nasty or rude, far from it. But I felt in an instant ‘Friends don’t do this’ What this is, is she stopped being my friend. When I got my (YES, YES I AM TALKING ABOUT MYSELF, THIS IS MY PAGE, I WRITE THIS IS OFTEN WHAT I DO, NOT ALWAYS) 😀 Sorry I had to get that out the way. Anyway, when I got my Disability, Chronic Pain Syndrome, it then upgraded to the 22827c360539999fff306fa99d5f1775‘Devils Disease’ Fibromyalgia it took things from me, abilities to do things, loss of many things I would before do, friends, family, respect, love, it gives sufferers the attributes and feelings of Motor Neuron Disease and Parkinson’s Disease I could go on. But I am a great believer in Karma. As I sit here now I would say 80% of my immediate family don’t think I am disabled, the 20% would be my Partner, two sons and closest friends. Not one family member is ‘cool’ with Fibromyalgia at all, they say like my friend in the USA did “Shaun has changed” And it gets boring and you do smile after a while, but you learn to surround yourself with people who don’t talk about it and you just have fun with, my partner, sons, close friends and a few on-line also. It is ‘Normal’ I have friends from School, these guys are all super cool, they mock my disability, so it’s all good, I wouldn’t have it any other way. To one mate I am ‘limpy’ for example 😀 This is how I want my disability to be, sadly around certain people it is near impossible because THEY have the problem you see?

Starter pack for the judgemental or is it just 'mental' :D

Starter pack for the judgemental or is it just ‘mental’ 😀

1dd6d21b566548f6552659025a6749baSome of my friends are people I done football with, coaches, players, players families, kids families, for 15 years till I had to stop 5 years ago now, some from school, guys I knew inside out, guys I held hands with at funerals of their parents, friends who are in-fact blood, people who you treat as blood, like Family. These people I know and they know me. When the Disability hit most were all “Oh Shaun I am sorry” I was like “Don’t you dare, no sympathy’ and it was never mentioned again. They all get it now 100%. I can’t make plans with a good mate who is a chef for example, we are REAL good mates, very close, as close as a brother should be. When I cancel they are all cool. With Family no understanding at all. I am sorry I have to say this, the person who said it will read this. I was told over the phone by a family member “You are always in bed” and “You never go out” At first I was angry but them my anger turned to “They are the ones in pain, not me” So again glance at the image above quickly and read it again

See, when you lose things, and they keep going, doesn’t stop, it becomes your ‘Reality’ and you understand and respect this is the way it is. Once you get to that way of thinking you can moveimgres-5_med on, you begin to smile again and be at peace with yourself and as I say, surround yourself with people who enjoy life, people who laugh every day, people like me who demand we have fun. So I go back to what that person told me, I said above “They are the ones in pain, not me” is when I figured out the nasty hurtful words and other issues. I am 41 and I love to learn, I need to learn, I have an open mind on ALL subjects and I believe this is healthy and needed, both apply. So when I understood the other person, the person who couldn’t get why “I am always in the house” or “I am always in bed” (Neither of which are true, not that I care, I don’t judge others) I understood that they were the ones, sadly, with the problems. See I learnt not so long ago, people who attack others with words, words the target won’t hear, mock or joke about a person in their absence, they are the ones with deep rooted problems

220px-Two_Dimensions_of_Emotion.gifThe people I surround myself with are just amazing people, Partner, kids, mates, whoever but others I can’t figure out, so I stopped. I realized they were figuring me out, or trying to figure me out so I gave in, if a person can’t figure a person out or doesn’t get a certain person I say sever the ties, walk away, stop trying to 2nd guess when you ARE wrong about people. Why spend time and brain power and time trying to figure a person out? 😀 How sad is that? I leave a smile because I have only very recently figured this out. I take the smile back and feel sad for these people. Not many, really, a handful. My parter will say “I don’t and can’t feel your pain or understand your mind especially on medication, BUT I AM HERE AND I LOVE YOU” that is all I needed to hear from the woman I love. She judges nobody, in our 25 years knowing each other as kids, primary school kids to now as adults late 30’s and 40 ish I have never once heard her say 1 (ONE) bad word about another. So ‘Surround yourself with the right people’ comes into play, I am around a goddess in every sense of the word, make no mistake I am the luckiest lad this side of Mars for managing to convince my partner to spend the rest of her life with me, so for that, I am blessed, happy, relieved! and in love. When all is said and done, this blog was fun, it made me smile because I demand I smile, to be the opposite is to not live, so easy choice right? Well not really, I know people who have killed themselves who have what I have, I know people talking about, people who have tried to take their life, people who were laughing one day and dead the next, some hide away from the world, I guess I hide away from MY world, the world I was born into, but I keep hold of the world I created for myself, anyone is welcome in, just knock the door, I will put the kettle on 😀

This ring true for anyone?

People die, many are worse, but this is bad, real bad, it makes loved ones not talk. Agreed loved one? I have changed, this changed me, try and be nice aye?

So look one final time at the image above. Makes sense now right? I have defined a meaning to it’s fullest, words from the Dalai Lama, and that’s hard to do right? Some of us can ‘Feel everything so deeply’ We are the ones who hurt the most, who take bad news the worst, we are the ones when say? one of our kids move out takes it hardest. It comes with the territory. To be at total one with yourself, to understand you in any shape, form, health whatever is hard to do. But once you can see it clearly it opens up amazing things in your mind. The pain sucks for sure, the medication sadly is enjoyable as it takes the pain away. I am ready for almost anything, I can take almost anything and I can understand almost everything and I now understand other people, I see them clearly now, lost, pretending to be what they are not, not on purpose, it’s just their ways and I respect others ways. I guess what I am saying is, I respect YOU for what you are, even if I have no time for you or I don’t like you, whatever, I respect you. Respect me back please. So this is for all my friends I lost, who are lost, this is for the people like me who are defined by the images I added. I never ask for sympathy, I would however like certain family members to just walk into my home and say “How you doing today you fragile fool” 1st of January and look what I did, I will leave you with the image of how 2014 ended and how 2015 started, and I wouldn’t have it ANY other way, these are battle wounds, I look at all my bumps and bruises as that, my prize for daring to live for daring to laugh and have fun in life. My new years resolution is to sort my sleeping pattern out, I will try but I am not holding my breath,  for long anyway…. Happy New Year 😉

 I Dropped the hoover on my ankle/shin and ripped some skin and 'I think' tore some ligaments. No break.. But agony and bruised like a break

Pain, Love, Cowards, Hate and the Festive Period

 

5c7b561c54aa07442de79e9bad926c20I am sitting at 3am here after 5 days of early bed and up early to being up all night on my own. Fibro is killing me. My skin is burning, my ankles and hips feel broken, my back feels snapped, back of my neck and shoulders are gone I can’t turn my head. I can’t type a lot, need to stop typing. Volterol Gel and I have a relationship but I don’t think I will meet its parents over Christmas.

Funny I say that there are a few families I didn’t and won’t see over Christmas. Does it hurt? Not at all, I am used to it. I changed when Fibro changed me. The images I have added to this article were not done by me, I don’t know who do give credit to but they are telling the story I try and tell, same as the song below

125afafc09631e92dc9ccf169d6d63cd

Why?

I live an existence of loneliness. I have no need to feel lonely but Fibro makes my rules also the rules of anyone with Fibro. At this time of the year the last thing people with a Chronic Illness need is stress. See stress makes me angry and makes me sore. See the Shaun everyone knew when I was 30 years old is gone and put in his place is a man lost in a World where getting lost is real hard, I say that because often I want to vanish for a time, maybe be a fly on a wall somewhere

Often I think about just getting in my car and seeing what else life has to offer me, but I know I will come right back here to the people I love. I have not tried this yet but I would be wasting my time right? If you read this and have Chronic pain life Fibro you will understand every word. Every word, sentence and paragraph will make sense

Sadly the people we need to understand make our lives worse. They don’t mean it, in-fact they are blissfully unaware of what they do to us. I don’t hold a candle to anyone and judge it’s not my way. But are there days I feel like I want to escape this pain? Sadly yes. But I can’t do that. The pain would allow it in a heartbeat. I know many who are like me, in agony, alone, sad, depressed and have no other choices. We don’t get choice we get what is on offer every day. My reality on paper is good but in reality it annoys me. The dysfunctional nature of what I call family has been a constant but I am not alone, I don’t think we all need a Disability to feel the way I do.

At this time of the year I see images of my family having fun and it kills me, it’s a knife through the heart. I get angry with Fibro but I only get angry with myself and that is pointless. So do we give up? HELL NO. The last thing I would do is give the people who would like to see me fall, actually fall, I fight against the people who wish to see me down and beat up. There are not many, people should know better. The silence and cowardly acts say it all for me. People saying things to my friends who do tell me. Cowards who would fill their underwear should I stand before them

LET IT GO

LET IT GO

I have family and friends, some of my friends are hardened lads who keep me going forward, kick my arse when it needs kicked and I thank them for it, without it I would spiral into deep depression and this wouldn’t be a blog, it would be the last letter I ever write. I refuse to give these sad people the smile on their faces they so need from me. I will beat you, I will outlast you and I may even be behind you one day when you turn around.

My reason for fighting on. Want to challenge me and them 2? Come, bring it, don't be no coward

My reason for fighting on. Want to challenge me and them 2? Come, bring it, don’t be no coward

Anyone to even tries to put a wedge between me and my girls will lose badly. I hope the right person reads this. I know this is a News Page on Ace News but this is news, it’s my news, it’s news I share with hundreds more. It’s a reality that makes you question so we must be sure before we get angry. The old Shaun who did the bad stuff is always on my shoulder telling me if I return to my old ways the pain will leave me

I can’t do that.  😉

KILLING ME SOFTLY : FIBROMYALGIA & CHRONIC PAIN DEATHS

Earlier today I did this blog https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/12/taboo-series-suicide/ and I posted it on my Fibromyalgia and any Chronic issue Facebook page for us all to discuss Chronic Illness, things that don’t kill you, they kill your spirit if you let it. I seen this here and I MUST share this page with YOU who have chronic pain or Fibromyalgia or any or any other “Can’t kill you” chronic Condition here> http://www.cfidsselfhelp.org/library/killing-me-softly-fmcfs-suicide Links and as much info on the “Devils Disease” as I could throw together. Not till I started my Group on Facebook for Chronic Pain/Fibro/Depression, anything Chronic, did I understand the level of suffering in others…

…..I AM NOT ALONE, AS I AM MADE TO FEEL BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. But hey, that is no happy feeling. Reassuring maybe? Our biggest challenge as sufferers is almost impossible to the point we just say ‘Feck it’ and give up. I don’t want to give up on family/friends who don’t like ‘New Shaun’ because to me they are ‘New Them’ it is totally a 2 way street. I notice people look at me as if I am screwing the Government for money, facts are I receive not ONE PENNY from the Government. The only message I want to get through to my loved ones is “This is why I am in bed, this is why I am in a lot, this is why I don’t visit” and once we get past that we can all smile, love, have fun and move the FECK ON! I speak for many (And I tagged a few in here when posting) when I say this, all we want is UNDERSTANDING. Then we can all move on, simple really. But we see things that may not be there, we feel things that may not be there. But to define this is to define Fibro. Fibro is new, not many people know about it, not many who live in pain know they have it. STRESS = PAIN as well as other things with Fibro/CPS, I know in America for example you guys pay for EVERYTHING and that is wrong. Here in Scotland EVERYTHING Health related is free. Now Scotland has greater powers it will only get better. Seeing your Dr is Free, All your Medication is free, Hospital visits be them arranged or not are free, X-Rays and ALL operations are free. I could not survive in a country anywhere where the stress of not knowing all of the above was covered so it must be murder for you guys. My heart goes out to you all 

In Scotland  they grade you 1 to 10…You get asked 100 questions in a book you take home, each question is 1 – good or 10 – DEAD (I am joking, 10 is the worst) I am 10, do you know your score? Try it below

WE ALL HAVE THESE DAYS

On August 15, 1996, Dr. Jack Kevorkian reportedly assisted in the suicide of Judith Curren, 42, of Pembroke, Massachusetts. She suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM). Jan Murphy, another FM sufferer, also turned to Kevorkian for help; ABCNews.com later reported her assisted suicide in the summer of 1997. A recently publicized investigation in the UK revealed that just last year, Julia Revill, age 58, hanged herself outside her family home after becoming frustrated at a lack of medical help for her Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). ME is the name used abroad for chronic fatigue syndrome. She had shown some improvement after treatment at the UK’s only ME hospital in Essex but had been refused funding by the local health authority for further treatment there, and her condition deteriorated. The loss of “one of our own” always hits hard. These and other reports sent shock waves through the FM/CFS community. Patients with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome have an exquisite understanding of the pain, both physical pain and emotional anguish, associated with having a poorly understood, incurable disease. “When you start hearing there is no hope, no treatment, and no cure over and over, you lose your will to fight,” wrote Jan Murphy in a eulogy read at her funeral. “What most people saw of me was a shell of what was going on inside.” The FM/CFS community is certainly not alone in addressing the problem of suicide. Each year, about 30,000 people in the United States take their own lives. It is the 11th leading cause of death in our country and accounts for about 1.5% of all deaths in the US.

Suicide and FM/CFS

It is unclear whether there is an increased risk of suicide among FM/CFS patients, as compared to the general population. In 2006, Leonard Jason and colleagues published a study analyzing a memorial list maintained by the National CFIDS Foundation. They reported that suicide was one of the three leading causes of death in the sample, along with heart disease and cancer. The researchers noted several limitations to the study, including uncertainty about whether the list was representative of people with CFS and concluded “clearly, it is not possible to generalize the data from this memorial list to the overall population of patients with CFS.”

b673c6fd45b37da511f5ba526de38ea1

The truth I just know hurts us all, Family who get angry with us…

However, there is evidence that chronic pain and illness put patients at risk for suicide. An illness like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, which is often doubted or neglected by the medical community, the public, and sometimes family and friends, can present unique problems. Patients with FM/CFS can become victims of isolation and despair. Secondary depression is a well-known symptom of FM/CFS and is common with any type of chronic pain. Sufferers depend on a variety of sources of support, including pain management, psychological support, and financial support. When one of these essential needs remains unmet over a long period of time, it is possible for patients to begin to believe that their situation is hopeless. In fact, a recent report published by Action for ME, a UK non-profit organization, revealed that 51% of survey respondents have felt suicidal as a result of their illness. Those with the most severe cases of the illness and who received delayed diagnosis and management were most likely to have considered suicide.

Responding to Suicidal Thoughts

How we feel..

How we feel..

Martha Ainsworth, founder and director of Metanoia, a non-profit organization dedicated to suicide prevention, describes the problem of suicide succinctly. She writes, “Suicide happens when pain exceeds resources for coping with pain.” There are many kinds of pain that may lead to suicide, and individuals vary greatly in their capacity to withstand pain. According to Ainsworth, you can survive suicidal feelings if you do either of two things: (1) find a way to reduce your pain, or (2) find a way to increase your coping resources. Both are possible. It is important to realize that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. The Journal of the American Medical Association has reported that 95% of all suicides occur at the peak of a depressive episode. For many people who feel suicidal, there seems to be no other way out. But suicidal thoughts are typically a reflection of distorted thinking caused by severe depression or even by the neurological changes associated with FM/CFS itself. When we are depressed, we tend to see things through the very narrow perspective of the present moment. A week or a month later, things may look completely different.

Warning Signs of Suicide

  • Talking or joking about suicide or statements about being reunited with a deceased loved one

  • Making statements about hopelessness, helplessness, or worthlessness (“Life is useless” or “Everyone would be better off without me.”)

  • Preoccupation with death (recurrent death themes in music, literature, or drawings)

  • Appearing suddenly happier or calmer

  • Loss of interest in things one cares about

  • Unusual visiting or calling people one cares about (saying good-byes)

  • Giving possessions away, making arrangements, or settling one’s affairs

  • Self-destructive or risk-taking behavior (alcohol/drug abuse, reckless driving, self-injury or mutilation)

LOL..So true

Most people who once thought about killing themselves are now glad to be alive. They say they didn’t want to end their lives – they just wanted to stop the pain. According to Dr. William Collinge, Ph.D., author of several books including Recovering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, “If you can remind yourself that the suicidal thoughts or feelings are transitory and symptomatic of the illness, this will help you get through those times when you are in the bottom of the pits and can’t see any way out. Also, talking about your feelings with a confidant or loved one can help immeasurably.”Experts agree that talking about suicidal feelings is one of the most important things you can do. Talking to a caring and supportive friend or family member can be helpful, and there are a variety of helplines and support groups to whom people who are feeling suicidal can reach out. Severe depression, the primary cause of suicide, is highly treatable. If depression is recognized and treated, many suicides can be prevented. Anyone who has suffered with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome knows that it requires a huge adjustment, not only to the illness itself but to all the consequences it has on our lives. Chronic illness is likely to affect the way sufferers live, the way they see themselves, and how they relate to others. With the present state of world events, many people are feeling additional tension, anxiety, or sadness. But suffering with severe depression may be unnecessary. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, it’s essential that you know you don’t have to go it alone. Suicide is preventable, and there are a variety of resources that can provide the support you need.

OBAMACARE SPAWNING ‘MEDICAL HOMELESSNESS’ CRISIS

obamacare-waiting-line-ap

California Obamacare enrollees are struggling to find doctors who accept their newly purchased health insurance plans.

I struggle in my tiny Scottish brain to understand and relate myself to American healthcare again here. I don’t know how other countries work, but today, same as every Monday I drive for my medication, or someone collects for me (I Still take some and have other medications at hand) to the chemist. I only see my Dr if there is a change in medication, mostly it is phone consultations as it’s often hard for me to make an appointment. I will get 8 items today in a big bag for free £$. In two weeks I have a scan on my knees planned last week at hospital, again for free. Should I decide I want to see my Dr today, I call before 10am, see him within 3 hours with any new medication, again FREE So why does the biggest, bestest nation on Earth have to keep people waiting months, charge hundreds of dollars a month and allow at least 500 Americans to die every day. A health service ranked about 30th best in the World.

As usual, links at the bottom

WHAT HAPPENED AMERICA? How can little old me get that in tiny Scotland (Totally different rules from England) and you can’t America? I feel guilt speaking to American friends always 😦 the ones who need medication badly and have to wait. In a system YOU pay for, you can’t have a say in what medication you need. North Korea has better health care 😦

 

UCSF Dr. Kevin Grumbach calls the phenomenon “medical homelessness.” CBS San Francisco says that many of the health care clinics for low-income individuals that helped people enroll in Obamacare are now seeing those same people “coming back to the clinic begging for help.” “They’re coming back to us now and saying, ‘I can’t find a doctor,'” Rotacare clinic staffer Mirella Nguyen told CBS San Francisco. “What good is coverage if you can’t use it?”

The problem stems from Obamacare’s “narrow networks” – extreme restrictions on access to doctors and hospitals in an effort to cut costs. California single mother of two Thinn Ong experienced the pain of Obamacare’s narrow networks when she realized that her $200-a-month Obamacare plan is not accepted by many of the doctors in her area. “Yeah, I sign it. I got it. But where’s my doctor? Who’s my doctor? I don’t know,” said a frustrated Ong.

CBS San Francisco reports that “Experts said the magnitude of the problem is growing, and will soon be felt by all Californians.”  Breitbart News contributor Scot Vorse experienced the reality of Obamacare’s narrow networks when he discovered that the closest dentist who accepted the required dental plan he was forced to purchase for his children was over 100 miles away. Californians are not the only ones coming to terms with the reality of Obamacare’s narrow networks. In Staten Island, New York, Margaret Figueroa, who suffers from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries, says her Obamacare plan denied vital medications and dropped all her doctors. Figueroa’s congressman, Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY), said he’s already received similar complaints from at least a dozen of his constituents.

Concerns that Obamacare’s narrow networks would spawn a medical homelessness crisis have been building for months. The Washington Post warned in January that “Obamacare’s narrow networks are going to make people furious.” Obamacare’s narrow networks crisis comes as vulnerable Democrats are scrambling to distance themselves from the president’s unpopular health care program. On Saturday, the New York Times reported that Obamacare has Democrats “running from it rather than on it.” Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) said last week that Obamacare will cost Democrats dearly in the Nov. 4 midterm elections. “We will lose seats in the House,” said Lynch. “And I think we may lose the Senate. I think that’s a possibility if things continue to go the way they have been… primarily because of health care.”

Chronic Pain Syndrome, Sleeping Patterns, Pain, God and much more!

cant-sleep

Anyone with Chronic Pain Syndrome should be able to understand here. Sleeping patterns, they are awful and just when you think you have found a routine to sleep, like a normal person, along comes the pain and leaves you in agony and unable to sleep

I go through this every week, for months, for years now, I am past making it annoy me I guess I have accepted it, but it still depresses me. I have not been told I am clinically depressed, some people just get depressed once in a while, happens to the best of us yeah?

I personally seem to go through a pattern of 4 days. An example of this week below

Sunday – Good sign, I was asleep just before midnight and up before 09:00 am!

Monday – Sleeping for 23:00 and awake at 07:30 with the kids = Superb

Tuesday – Fell asleep at 22:00 and was up and showered for 07:30 am all told

Wednesday – Fell asleep at 22:00 again, and was up with my Daughters at 08:00 am

Thursday – Tonight…………NOTHING

Friday – As I type it is 04:05 and I am in agony, tonight it is my left hip, it feels locked, it feels like I have a fracture or a break, I just can’t move it. So 1 Diazepam, 1 Dihydrocodeine and 1 Tramadol later and lashings of Voltaren Gel and the pain has reduced a whopping 10% or so

See this is just one of 100 things about Chronic Pain. The pain is the main show in town, but all these small side effects, issues due to pain and medication, or lack of medication, or too much medication, having to take more medication because of the medication you are on, sleep, making plans, going out for a meal for example is near on impossible for me, visiting family and friends, going to the shops, going to the bathroom, showering or bathing to getting dressed and all in-between are a REAL issue

So not only are you in pain, you are miserable due to all the things that come with this invisible disability people discriminate against every day, WHY? You ask. Well if you are not in a wheelchair coming out of your car in a disabled parking bay you are a cheat and lair to people watching on, yeah these sad people who are perfect and have a perfect life. I am joking of course, these people are so sad and miserable they go about pointing others issues out to distract from their own problems. Why is this relevant you ask, well it is because it is all part of the issue. Pain is the tip of a very big iceberg afloat at Sea for people with Chronic Pain, and tiny problems become monster problems

I would not wish this crap on my worst enemy, if I had an enemy. I don’t keep enemies, they can keep me, you are on your own, so I would not wish this on a Dog or a Cat or any other Animal. It is truly the most difficult way to live, especially when 99% of us had a pain free childhood, and knew a life where there was no pain, we could do anything, like anybody, but  the pain comes and it  is like all over body toothache. This is the best way I can describe this pain, all over body toothache feeling

It could be worse, and I know it could be, but right this second, I am done, I had a slight argument with an Admin on a cracking Social Media site tonight, and I think perhaps this played a part. As many with Chronic Pain will testify, a STUPID debate or one wrong word can set you off into the land of stress, sadly for us, Stress = more pain, then worrying about the pain leads to more pain, this in-turn leads to a depression type feeling, yeah, you got it, leading to more pain and due to one medication I have the memory of the stupidest goldfish in the class 🙂

I am on the path looking for God at the moment, and sadly times like this I ask “Why God” and I hear people say “God works in mysterious ways” or “It is Gods way of helping you become a better person” And if the truth be told, living like this gives you a sense of caring. But God, if you are listening. I care, I have learnt my lesson, I am done, can you please stop? Can you realise that I am not happy to learn this? I am not happy with this Mystery God.  I respect your ways God, I do, but not this way I don’t! 14 years of pain getting worse as I approach age 40. I have had enough God. No saying or religious meaning at this second will help me understand why you put me in all this pain. I am not a Buddhist that I know off. So please God, whatever your plan is for me, can I ask you re-think the plan? Because this is HELL to me. I talk to you, reach to you, I have done for many years, but the pain still comes. If you are trying to build my character, God I have character. Please, enough! I beg. Let me live with less pain so I can be a regular Husband and Father and go back to having some sort of life.

I don’t ask for much. In-fact I  don’t pray for much, this is a sick joke now, but that is the pain talking. I just want to be regular and normal and sleep like the rest of the inhabitants in the GMT -/+0 Time Zone. As things stand I am Australian one week, and from the West Coast of the USA the next with a hint of GMT time thrown in for good measure 😦

Please God

I am deeply sorry for anyone who suffer as I do, it blows
