Trapped

I don’t know what to say or do. How do you explain something that even you don’t understand or comprehend? I just feel like scratching my brain out of my head and trading it in for a new one just so I don’t have to feel like this. I want to scream. I am so angry, but I don’t know why. I feel like running away, taking my partner with me so she can get away from things too. I’m mentally restless, yet physically exhausted. I’m severely depressed, yet I should be happy. So what is it? I need to know! Maybe it’s physical? Mental? Or both… I need help, but I am unable to ask for it – I hate asking for help. However, it’s at that stage where I’ve had to admit that I need professional help now. It’s strong and out of control now…

Charity Post – Keep The Beat & RACPA UK

Hello everyone!

This will be a blog post (long overdue I might add ;-)) telling you all about a couple of charities I support. For both of these heart warming charities I spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and through the use of merchandise I have purchased from them.

First of all, let me tell you about ‘Keep The Beat':

They are an East Midlands based charity here in the UK, started by people who have had personal experiences with child heart problems. They are “A Charity Established to give hope & support to those affected by congenital heart defects. A special interest in Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome“. Strong supporters of keeping the children’s heart surgery and ECMO unit at Leicester’s Glenfield Hospital, they have petitioned and battled their way with phenomenal success.

I took an interest in this charity due to the personal experiences of a few people near and dear to me. I have always been passionate when it comes to charities that support vulnerable children, whether it be bullying, homelessness or physical and mental health. To this end, I purchased a t-shirt from them to show my support:

Ten pounds well spent! I wear it as much as I can when I am out and about and I have had a few people reading me to see what it is I have to say :-)

If you want to show your support then head on over to their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Keepthebeat/207436135950744

Thanks!

Now for my second charity – RACPA UK – Rock Against Child Pornography and Abuse UK.

These guys are a great bunch of people as I know a few of the big supporters and sponsors. RACPA UK aim to help stamp out the atrocity that is child pornography – a vile and sickening element that needs to be extinguished!  Here is their main mission:

Working hard and making a noise for the silent victims of child pornography and sexual abuse!

Mission

We Don’t Want Your Money… We Want Change!

The mission is to raise awareness of child pornography, sexual abuse, and abuse of all kinds, no matter whether it be it physical, emotional, psychological or in any other form, and whether it takes place in the Internet, at home, in schools or in public.

From them I bought a wristband and a t-shirt:

A worthy charity? HELL YES! What else could be better than supporting these incredibly big-hearted guys? I can tell you something else awesome about them – The L’arpies! What is a L’arpie? Little ‘Appy Rock People – the official mascots of RACPA UK! :-D
These cuddly little guys are made by the girls from the RACPA UK team. These ladies, I might add, are absolutely lovely to say the least!
I could go on and on about the charity and the L’arpie girls, but time is precious so why not go check them out!

Struggling

Now that I have finished my novel, I am in need of editing the monster! That was completed in January and I have done very little in the way of edits.

I’m finding that there are distractions left, right and centre. For some reason I can’t resist things, such as the odd bit of gaming, drinking, and the rest. Too many personal issues as well.

I need motivation. Any suggestions?

Joshua’s storytelling takes readers on extraordinary quests into the conspiracies and underworlds that haunt history. Told through the perspectives of relatable characters and interspersed with wit and insight, his epic novels illuminate the forgotten forces that lurk amongst us, forces that can only be confronted by those who struggle to rise from mediocre lives and embrace destinies that are nothing less than terribly wonderful.
