Community

By Gay, Happiness & Joy, Love & Relationships, Paganism, The Web, ThinkingNo Comments

Human beings are social animals and since even before the beginning of language, we developed and engaged in communities.

I, like you all are part of many communities. Including (but by no means limited to): my immediate family, my locality, nursing, gay, authors/writers and pagan/spirituality.

I love being part of every community that I am part of, but like any community I don’t always agree with or like all members.

On exceptionally rare occasions, I get into conflict with a community member. Sometimes it’s like we can’t see what brings us together as community members. Like we are too focused by difference, rather than the similarities.

It is always sad when this happens and even sadder when we can’t agree to disagree. What is difficult for me to accept, is that sometimes there is no resolution to these disagreements.

I have apologised for any offense caused. I have empathised, trying to understand another’s point of view.

I have explained my perspective and thinking. I have explained my feelings. I have sought resolution.

But unfortunately there was no resolution wanted on the other side. Perhaps with time, there may be resolution. Perhaps there may not be. But at least I’ve tried.

Best wishes & Write soon,

Antony

Your Birthday

By Friends & Family, ThinkingNo Comments

It was your birthday yesterday. I always remember your birthday and the anniversary of your far too premature death. But some thing rather unusual happened to me yesterday. I felt the raw pain of grief in my heart at you not being physically there and had to stop to have a good cry. After my good cry, I lit a candle and wished you a Happy Birthday.

I have no idea why this particular birthday of yours brought such intense feelings of grief and loss. Perhaps I was more sensitive than normal due to lack of sleep. I’ve haven’t been sleeping well due to the constant pain from my nose.

At the weekend your family and friends are going for the annual meal to celebrate your birthday. This one will be a bit tougher than it normally is. But that’s okay. As much as I feel sadness and grief at your loss, I also smile and laugh remembering the good times together.

Big hugs,

Antony

Blog Correction: Robin Williams’ Cause of Death

By Health, Thinking, TV, Online Streaming & FilmsNo Comments

I recently watched Robin’s Wish on Amazon Prime Video. It’s a touching documentary about his life, his loves and the run up to his suicide.

The documentary revealed that Robin Williams was suffering with undiagnosed Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) at the time he chose to take his own life. This form of dementia has no cure and causes massive symptoms including:

  • Insomnia & Exhaustion.
  • Anxiety & Depression.
  • Hallucinations.
  • Problems with control of movement.
  • Problems with thinking and memory.
  • Confusion.
  • Slowed thinking speed.
  • Falls and fainting.

If you are concerned that you or someone you love may have DLB, please see your GP.

In my 2014 blog post titled: Robin Williams Tribute Video & My Thoughts About Poor Mental Health, I wrongly listed his cause of death as being suicide due to severe depression. This was the best available information at the time, however this was wrong and I would like to correct it to: suicide caused by undiagnosed Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).

The revelation that Robin Williams was suffering with Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) only came months after his death, when his autopsy results became available.

However I would like to sincerely apologise to anyone who may have been affected by this incorrect information. I am pleased to be able to correct it here and link the original post to this one.

Best Wishes,

Antony
