Some time ago i promised a social network report to those who were interested - I still have email contact addresses.
There have been delays due to my severe depression, which is under control and which I am working on on an almost dailly basis. It is journey of discovery. I know I am in good company what with the likes of Bukowski and Hemingway and Churchill.
I was getting to the report when I had a serious cycling accident. A car pulled out in front of me - I was literally inches away. I had no broken bones or internal injuries, but the paramedic, who is a cyclist himself, told me I survived, literally, for two reasons. First, I was fit enough for my body to take tne impact. This was annoying because I didn't think I was that fit (yet). Second, I was wearing a cyclng helmet;there is a coffee-cup-sized piece missing from my helmet over the left temple, and a piece of glass from my glasses embedded in the top of the helmet. I am just beginning to work throught the PTSD elements (which are hopefully relatively mild).
Not wishing to end a long story, but feeling obliged to do so, let me finish by saying I have not forgotted the report. Thank you for your patience. The work has been marked (it was part of an MSc) and I achieved a distinction. Given Cardiff University Psychology department is world class this probably means one of two things: Either standards have dropped, or the work was actually OK. For my part I think the concepts and data were excellent, if controversial (plenty of room for purists to pooh-pooh). I was not happy with the way I wrote it up as I could have done better. There we go.
FOr everybody who took part, thank you for your contributions. I look forward to sharing as soon as I am able.
Finally, if anyone would like a write up re the depression send me an email titled 'depression' and I will send you a pdf. If you like the style and would like a write up re the bike accident send me an email titled 'bike'. Probably the more interesting write up I have on my depression relates it to running, so that is the one I would prefer to send.
Best wishes to all
