    In four years time I will be drawing my state pension, no more worry about benefits.
    In the next 5 years I'd like to see my son settled and happy.

    I try not to think too far ahead in case my dreams don't come true.

    @janer1967 I can't really say without giving too much away, as no one as ever wrote or thought of the idea before. 🤔 I'm going to need a decent proof reader, before sending it off.

    Let a friend read it, someone you really trust, who can be honest with you.
    ypu have to let it out of the box, otherwise it’s just mashed up trees and ink.

    It's been a dream for many years to write my life story. 

    I'd like my mental health and well being in general to be so much better than where its at now.

    I would like to be driving or have a motorbike licence and to have passed my theory test 

    I want to be in employment and be able to cope 

    Debt free.

    Maybe in a relationship. 

    Defo would love a house or new home.

    Passport holder again

    My dream is to get my husband well enough so he wants to come out somewhere - maybe for a coffee or to walk the dog. Maybe not grand but at the moment it seems like a really ambitious goal

    All sensible, and achievable, goals.
    tick them off one by one. It’s like the old adage, “how do you eat an elephant? One mouthful at a time!

    I am with you on the life story, me and my wife have started putting some of our adventures down on a Facebook page, at some point I will use them as the bones of a book…it could be a good read.

    have a look if you are on Facebook: the cut price millionaires 
    is the page title.

    If I'm still here in 5 years time then I just hope life will feel more manageable by then.

    A few years ago I wrote a list of things I wanted to achieve before hitting 30 - including seeing a live comedy show, going to a proper music festival, visiting more gardens and historical places (I have done a few within a small radius) but that all seems well out of reach now.  If there's one achievement I can make in the next 5 years, it'd be having the 'fixable' health issues sorted, which are currently only being restricted by myself and some of the other health issues!

    To be able to leave the house alone for a full day or even just an hour to start with

    To be able to go to the shops on my own

    To be able to use a knife with no one watching over me and not have any obsessive thoughts about using it to harm myself

    I really envy you, being able to admit to, and want to change those things about yourself.

    i Have spent a lifetime hiding my issues, and masking them with drink and other things.

    I hope you find the fortitude to win through some of those challenges, each one of them sound “a handful” on their own.

    do t sweat the driving too much, I used to do 50-60,000 miles a year, and the thought of getting behind a wheel now brings me out in cold sweats…I have lost half my vision, but we are both looking at the same issue, just from different angles.

    sending you my positive vibes, just to get the ball rolling.

    (me and a good friend decided “positive vibes” were our thing, as I wanted to send him prayers, but he is a pagan, so we agreed we could beam positive vibes to each other without leaving our belief systems too far behind)
