    That's so sad to read. You're a genius with the camera.

    Maybe just drag yourself to Wasdale Head for the BOFRA race next Saturday, with your running shoes or your camera, or both? It might make you feel better seeing all that again, or taking part?

    I have always said that Andy is an artist with his camera and FWIIW I have one of his photos framed in my hall.

    I can believe it. I’m sure you’ll bounce back though. Hopefully see you back on the scene soon?

    Really rough few days. Every so often my mind can't cope with the fact that i may be facing a life without any sport. I slip back to defining my own self-worth by whether i can run or ride a bike, and to what extent. I'm really afraid of what could be my life from now on, the level of meaning drops below what i consider to be the lower limit for preserving my life. Loss of meaning had been a big driver for depression in me in the past. Yoga masters refer to this as 'The Monkey Mind'. A restless mind that goes too far and attatches to thoughts that aren't necessarily true; creates stories that feed into self-defeating belief systems. For some reason i'm very vulnerable first thing in the morning, it takes hours of hard work just to arrive at neutral let alone positive thinking.

    Have you consider any different sports?
    Golf and Crown Green Bowls are in my plans if I get to retirement.

    Your a great bloke Luke and there is something out there in life with your name on it.

    Your challenge is to discover it.

    All the best lad.

    After a little more thought, I have further ideas.

    If you are totally attached to running and cycling.

    Have or could you consider being a RO ?

    You can then give a lot back and still be around like minded people.

    Woodentops
    Luv Shack
    Des Gibbons
    Britty
    Bill J
    Etc, etc, etc

    All spring to mind in doing series of races and I'm sure there are many more too.

    Creating a race must be wonderful when you see the people who have just undertaken your challenge.

    Sorry Luke, just another thought in a sleepless night.

    Some good ideas there from Stagger.

    But going back to your problems: you have the diagnosis, and you even seem to know what the cure is, but it is so difficult implementing that cure. The fundamental thing is that your self-worth isn't defined by what you can do; you have intrinsic worth as a human. Getting your mind to focus on that truth is the big struggle, and I wish you all the best in this fight.
