Dealing with Under-active Thyroid

This is a chronicle of the effects that under-active Thyroid had on me, the symptoms, the diagnosis and the treatment. In my case, it was not diagnosed for quite a long time, then I was not given the correct dosage of Thyroxine (the medication needed to replace that which should be produced by the Thyroid gland) which resulted in me suffering the symptoms unnecessarily for over TWO YEARS!

 

My symptoms began in early 2014, I was living in a house that I was refurbishing and I had a rapid and unexplained loss of energy, appetite and positive spirit. At the time, I never even noticed, when you deteriorate due to under-active Thyroid, you don’t even realise what is happening. I began to withdraw, I had no energy to do anything and over the next few months I did absolutely nothing at all.  Continue reading

The little girl lost

I heard this piece of music last year and I immediately had a vision of an innocent girl pondering on her life, running to and running from……So I made a video to fit the music. I hope this goes someway to expressing the sentiment behind this video.

The little girl lost As I walk the path of my destiny I wonder, Am I a lady, or am I a girl Behind me the past, ahead the future I’m just a little girl lost My heart yearns for love Yet I’m running from fear I’ll finally break free, but…. I’m STILL, just a little girl lost

Larnaca Time Lapse

Images win 49 awards on Pixoto!

Well, I thought I would boast a little. I started uploading images to Pixoto for their competitions two or three years ago. I was not seriously adding lots of images, just the odd one and considering the thousands that I have on file, so far I only have 217 on the site.

However, this has still surprised me as I have won 49 awards so far. There hasn’t been any financial gain from that, but it has helped a few images to sell, which has been wonderful.

When you do something purely for the love of it, there is no greater joy, than to experience the admiration of others when the see your work. So yes, this really feel wonderful.

Ever been on a day out in Cyprus and come across a bridge that has left you breathless? If so, it’s more than likely that you were out on an adventure somewhere near Limassol or Paphos, deep in the foothills of the Troodos Mountains where a number of rivers weave across the wild undulating countryside.

Cape Greco & Sea Caves

Cape Greco, also known as Cavo Greco (Italian for “Greek cape”; Greek: Κάβο Γκρέκο) and Poyraz Burnu in Turkish, is a headland in the southeastern part of the island of Cyprus. It is at the southern end of Famagusta Bay and forms part of Ayia Napa Municipality.

It lies between the towns of Ayia Napa and Protaras, both of which are popular tourist resorts. It is frequently visited by many tourists for its natural beauty. It is a protected nature park. From the high points on the cliff that rests at the cape one can view amazing sights out to sea.

 

 

According to local legend, it is also the home of the ‘Ayia Napa sea monster’.

Cape Greco is a National Forest Park with unique flora and fauna and is under the administration of the Forestry Department of the Cyprus Ministry of the Interior.

There are many caves along the coastline from Agia Napa to Cape Greko National Park. Many people come here to snorkel and the locals come here before the crack of dawn to fish. The Palace caves and the Smugglers caves are deep passages in to the cliffs which are only accessible from the sea. Some extend as deep as 240 feet in to the rock.

During calm seas and at low tide it is possible to swim and even walk in to most of them. Although they have a rock-strewn environment the waters are wonderfully clear. Boat trips regularly pass by daily. There are spots of deep water amongst the rocks where spirited folks engage in the extreme sports of cliff diving/jumping
