Hitting the Brick Wall

Simon’s Story

On the 19th of September, I turned 59 and hit a brick wall.  I suddenly felt old.  My body is slowly but surely falling to bits and I had a dose of the “why fucking bother.”  My self-worth, which hasn’t been high for a considerable time now, dropped to zero and CBF ruled.

Then something wonderful happened, two people cared; one was worried enough to call the police to make sure I was OK and the other came and knocked on my door.  He cared enough to come round and check which meant more to me than I can find words for.  

He was there and that was priceless.

Thank you!
