    Anxiety doesn’t always run your life

    I haven’t written much about my Anxiety of late and this is because, strangely, it’s not been a big part of my life lately. It seems strange saying that after nearly two years of it ruling my life but that’s … Continue reading

    Feeling Good at Easter Road

    Saturday Finally thawed out enough to try typing so here’s my thoughts on Saturday’s game at Easter Road versus Queen of the South. Queen of the South have not had the start to the season they would have preferred and … Continue reading

    Santa Forgot

    This is the fantastic video from Alzheimer’s Research UK.  It centres around Santa having Alzheimers himself and not longer remembers what he does and how special he is to so many people. My own Nana died from Alzheimer’s and I … Continue reading

    Put it in the NET! And Bring Back Hendo…

    Finally escaped to write this. So, Saturday afternoon brought us Falkirk at Easter Road.  Despite Falkirk forgetting how to play football it was never going to to be a match-up to take lightly. Falkirk are further down the league that … Continue reading

    Sorry Saturday at Easter Road

    First of all, before I continue with this blog, I am a huge Hibernian supporter.  Big, huge.  I stick with them through thick and thin and that’s why I’ll be with them this season, next season, the season after and … Continue reading

    A Safe Place

    Most people with anxiety have a “safe place”.  If you know a person with anxiety and you ask them if they have a safe place they will likely say yes. As part of a group last year we spoke of … Continue reading

When Exuberance Won…

Sigh.  Another day and another “woe is me” statement from Ibrox.  Poor old (new) Rangers.  What on earth did they do to deserve such a tough run of luck? No one there can understand it.  They got beaten in the Scottish Cup Final on May 21st when it was their right to win it.  Every player and official was assaulted on the pitch when a vicious Hibernian crowd ran on to the pitch intent on causing as much violence and desruction as possible.  Everything that has happened to Rangers since has been Hibernian’s fault.

Henderson to deliver….

Lately, when I’ve been feeling a little low or in need of a general feel good moment I have fired up the Scottish Cup Final of 2016 and watched the last few minutes.

It’s Henderson to deliver…and David Gray has scored, the Captain! Hibs are on the brink of history!

Still get a thrill from watching it.  The corner, the header, the reaction.  What a day.  What a weekend.  I still can’t properly explain it to people.  I’ll say “it was just…amazing.”

Anxiety and Me

It’s closing on two years since I got my real diagnosis of Generalised Anxiety Disorder.  I’d known for a long time that something was wrong.  I’d waken in the morning with a heavy body.  By that I mean a body that is wanting to stay in bed, stay safe and not have to deal with anything.  This didn’t happen every day but just now and again.

Then came the Scottish Cup parade

 

One week ago today Hibees were waking up all over the place (literally!) with the happy feeling that just hours before we had seen our team, Hibernian, lift the elusive Scottish Cup after a 114-year wait.  Liam Henderson’s corner placed perfectly for David Gray’s header into the back of the net and we had it. The Scottish Cup. In our lifetimes.
