Back in the Saddle

Welcome back to A Jackals Voice.
I've been away for quite some time I know, and I do have a reason, though not one I'm particularly proud of. Prior to that I'd like to talk about today's post. Today I would like to talk about thinking traps, how they effect us, and how we might be able to break loose. So without further a due, let the rambling commence.

I've been Diagnosed!

Welcome back to A Jackals voice.
 A lot has happened since my last post, and to be honest I haven't really been in a place to write about it. However, as of yesterday, I have been formally diagnosed. I have Functional Neurological Symptoms. The short version is that I have psychological problems which are cause neurological type symptoms. The disclaimer is that I can potentially get better through hard work and treatment, but it's not a total guarantee.

The things we don't see

Hello and welcome to A Jackals Voice.
I'm sorry I've been away so long, there were a few things that had to be done. Things like; testing my body's limits, going out on small adventures, nothing really of note, but essential nonetheless. During this time I've learned two things. The first is that I am able to have a life, and a good one to boot. The second is that I really must slow down, or risk burning myself out as I have done this past week. So, sitting at home, hiding away from the world, I thought I'd share with you exactly what I'm hiding, and why so many people with mental health conditions do so.

A Jackal Walks

Hello and welcome to A Jackals Voice.
It's been almost 13 months since my Panic Attack that started all of this. 13 months since my arms and legs stopped doing what they were told, and my voice stopped cooperating. Whilst I'm by no means better medically speaking, in terms of coping with my condition I've come a long way since those early days. Sometimes I forget how long it's been, other times it's all I think about, but as I said in my last post, I'm not just going to wait around for my doctors anymore. Today was the first day of my new life, and it was a bloody good one.

The Hope of a Madman

Hello and welcome to A Jackals voice.
Today's post is going to be a little different than the rest, you'll have to let me know how it goes.
Whilst I've shared a lot about myself and my condition, the effects it had on everyday life, it has all be rather impersonal. Today I would like to change that. I would like to share a little part of my own mind with you. I do this to honor of a friend, to thank another and hopefully help at least one person. So humor me if you will, as I detail the thoughts of a strange man.
