A cry from the past.

A cry from the past

Images come and go
As people do all through our lives
But every now and then
One of them unexpectedly
Nudges
And reminds us of what may have been
No-one can claim immunity
From their past
But everyone can own their present
And by doing so
They invent and
Create
A tangible future
But when images
And memories
Fight back from our present content
In that moment we go back
And in that moment
We are there
Reflecting, enjoying and sometimes
Hurting
It is fine to shed a tear for the past
As long as that is where it remains.

A smile can hide so much

Image

Karen Carpenter had such a pure and vibrant voice. She managed to hide her pain from the world,  but she paid the ultimate price with her life.

The longer we keep the pain locked inside the faster we die inside.

And on the outside what is left?

A welcoming smile hides much.

Nothing is Sacred

I cant get over my beginning

I cant imagine my end

I want to escape this wilderness I’m living in

I want to be somebodies friend

I could do with a little peace oh lord

and my heart cries out for love

but to realise all of lifes fantasies

Has just got to be too much

A poignant quote

We must be willing to get rid of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us

Natures Innocence. A poem

Natures Innocence.

ImageImage

Following the rain
I walk though sun drenched fields of growing green
Soaking up the innocent beauty of nature
Only man can destroy this vision of perfection
In times soon to come
He will try to do such a thing here
And then where shall I go
To find natures innocence.

A nice quote about new beginnings. This is for the Derbyshire Eating Disorders Project

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

T.S.Eliot.

We have developed a new way of treating eating disorders here in Belper, a sleepy Derbyshire Town.  This town was the birthplace of the  industrial revolution centuries ago.  It is also going to be place where the new way of  treating eating disorders started. The old approaches have had their chance. It is costing the UK taxpayers  £1.3billion a year to treat eating disorders. Lives are being forever blighted and lives are being lost. The cost to the NHS is spiraling out of control and still the Doctors and specialists still treat sufferers in the same way without question without moving forwards.

So it is time to start something new. Watch this space.

“A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle between the future and the past.”

Fidel Castro.

Derbyshire’s new eating disorders project has gone live.

Originally posted on Getting a Life without Anorexia. Poetry and observations from a survivor:

“A New Way Forward. The Derbyshire Eating Disorders Project”         

On 10/05/14 the project was officially set up, so we are now a fully functioning group. We are a “Not for profit community group.” All treatment on the project will be paid for from grant and funding donations. This is an altruistic project where the needs of users comes above all else. Participants on the project will not be charged for their treatment. We feel that it is time to find a new way to treat anorexia. Derbyshire does not currently have any specialist treatment facilities for anorexia. In surrounding areas such as South/West Yorkshire,Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, treatment facilities are sparse and waiting lists are long. We are not trying to compete with any other service provider. No other provider is offering the type of treatment we offer. We welcome all organisations,charities,NHS, Local GP’s,self help groups, newspapers, etc to work in…
