Black Dog Days

This time last year I was preparing to take my advanced licence exam at the RSGB Convention (which I passed) and I vowed to attend this years convention proper.

Unfortunately I have a had a bit of a wobble emotionally and despite having booked day tickets I have decided at the last minute not to attend.

The past few weeks have had plenty of euphoric moments, with the successful flight of my the high altitude balloon at the recent hamfest and my first satellite QSO however following these highs I have suddenly found myself in a bit of a low, this is due to a number of factors.

This isn't the first time I have been in one of these dark moods. Sadly apart from my hobby, which has become a crutch I realise I am again stuck in a rut and I know I have to make a number of major decisions to put things back on track.

I've suffered the same thing on and off for the past 8 years. It never gets easier, just one of those things you have to ride out. Always enjoy the blog mate, hope you feel better soon. 73 from M3HHY,

Man, I know what it is like. Well, no I don't. Cos only you are you.

I reckon anybody who admits to it is close to getting the demon under control. For me, it is the ups and downs that I find hard to manage. Planning something when on a high, and then backing out when on the down slope. But the point is, if I am honest with myself, I cannot do something that is wrong for me now, even if I booked it ages ago. So best to let it go. Be honest with myself. Next month I won't be able to remember what the problem was.

Well, it works for me. Everybody has different things that work for them. But that first step is to admit it, and nothing I can say or do can sort it out until it is ready to be sorted out. The fact that I can't really help right now, does not stop me offering my support to you, which I do.

Keep up the good work.
