We have looked at a house today, down by the River Trent, in Newark, in an area that does not flood, and it is much preferable to the bungalow, so we shall pull back from that one and use it as an emergency fall back position.

Roughly the same size as this bungalow but in a house and it has a large conservatory that goes across the whole of the back of the house.

Property comes with a mooring and fishing rights and the landlord wants someone in who is on a very long let.

Sounds ideal Chris - fingers crossed for the success of this move - for you and Nell!
Have gone for walks by the Trent a few times with a friend, I used to stay with in Arnold - lovely river!
Is there one next door for me! Lol

I've been hit, if that is the correct word, by the 'feeling fine when I have an interview' thing.

It appears that one of my interviews did not go according to the assessors plans because I did not fulfill my role as the poor, helpless, disabled person.

It gets up my nose that I am constantly being judged by nerks with no medical or surgical training who do not get up off their negative bottoms to ask my medical and surgical consultants as to my levels of disablement.

Yet again, someone has decided that their ideal of a disabled person has not been reached - it is so anger-making, yet one is left without any way of earthing oneself or of getting rid of the anger.

I have just realised that I fell into a similar trap last week. My GP had a form from Combat Stress. Lots of questions about medication and medical history which he just pulled from the computer. Then right at the end a question 'can you use public transport', I said yes, because I can use the bus every now and again. This simple answer now means that my travel to Combat Stress will be by travel warrant on the train, or if I choose to use my car I will get a much lower milage rate.

You just have to keep kicking, though I am tired and fed up with the whole process.

I was recently told that if I did not like what was happening then all I had to do was get a job or go somewhere else.

I've come to realise that it does not matter if anyone puts all of my files and years of data onto a computer - no one is going to bother to read it, after the people in some third world country have tapped in the data and my details have changed so dramatically that my paperwork and disablement bear no relation to each other.

When I write to the DSS or their recent new name the DWP, it becomes obvious that they do not have my full file in front of them or even any part of it. I might as well receive the answers in Serbo-Croat for all the practical use they will be.

So one endeavours to continue fighting and thinking up harsh new words to maintain the levels of aggression necessary for dealing with monkeys who are paid in peanuts.

Wrote a piece on my PTSD in Krazus thread 'Stepping away', don't know whether it should be in PTSD or in this thread?

My speech is still improving though I seem to have lost a lot of words from my verbal dictionary and it feels like someone has opened my head up and removed part of my brain.

I'm continually ending up lost for words and forgetting what it is I am trying to say; the stuttering is a bit annoying, but have got used to coping with that so it does not bother me as much as other people.

Something that I am now more aware of is the tinnitus and it sounds like a generator in each ear, as one would hear them from afar.

I was on the phone twice today and managed to get my meaning across each time though I am writing everything down before I pick up the handset, so I am not as I was a few months ago.

There is another poetry performance coming up with Newark Poetry Society in Newark Library at 19.30 on 21st July 2010 - tickets are 3 and available from the library.

My confidence is still very rocky, despite doing the performance poetry, the stage acts as a buffer and I do not have to be my real self with an audience.

I find fear to be a necessity because it makes my brain fizz and I can put on a performance for the audience.

Afterwards, my world slumps and I have to cope with depression and the physical reactions that that causes.

One has not been back to Newark Branch of the Legion and I suspect that I never will. They all seem to be continually looking backwards and whatever one suggests is met with a 'No'.

For me, it is the dark gloom of memories in the past and I look forward, not backwards.

I have no use for pillars of salt nor rose-tinted, memory-clouded visions of a past that never existed.

Give me Mr Toad and 'the open highroad'.

Chris Green

Precisely, though the various Heritage Agencies seem to think that there is, perhaps they intend Britain should become some form of Disney Park?

Spent 200 on getting my garden cleared of waste and the lads had it cleared in 3 hours.

Got some extra bodies for the move, so we are well-prepared and it should not be too much of a problem.

The New World Order creeps nearer & nearer !
A World Govt ruled by the Kings of Finance !
I strongly believe the crash of the banks and the following world recession, were engineered, by those in higher Power ( The Illuminati ? ), who of course will be waiting in the wings to take over when the World is Bankrupt totally.

Well in order for the entire world to be bankrupt, the Earth would have to owe an external, alien organisation a lot of dosh.

From an internal audit perspective, the majority of the population could be bankrupt, but there must be a small number of people raking in the money, e.g. George Soros, the Duke of Westminster or The Carlyle Group.

just a thought, if these chaps are powerful to affect the whole world, then they already have the ultimate power over all, so they dont actually need to do anything, they are already in the position they want to be in?
