Exercise is my new found medicine, which literally saved my life!

A dear friend of mine from our good old days. Hopefully soon it can be our good current days.

I haven’t been as motivated to blog recently. Think I took a bit of a kick in the teeth after my last post. Don’t ask me why because the stats actually say it was my most popular to date! I am over sensitive… That’s my problem. I take things to heart. I don’t take criticism or compliments well. So as a reader, you have no chance of pleasing me!!!! Ha ha!

Anyway, back to today. Exercise? My new found medicine? Ok let’s do it…

Well it’s as simple as the headline says = ‘Exercise is my new found medicine’.

I have just got back from a session with my personal trainer and the endorphins are flowing through my body. You cannot better that feeling when you are fighting against a mental illness. Probably why I am able to sit here and write this post…
