Panic attacks?

In the last month or so I have been getting panic attacks. These are not good and are scary. I've had three since Mid November that are cause for concern.
I get a pounding headache, sweat, can't catch my breath and feel like my heart is going to explode.

I've also had slight ones which do not bother me too much, but these mega ones do and frighten me.

After the last one yesterday evening - had a bit of a sleepless night - that panic attack yesterday evening knocked me for 5 (cant say 6 as it wasn't as bad) could all the extra stress of day to day living on my own be causing this? I was never as bad as this when in Cardiff with friends in their spare room... financial worries and the like?

Am sure it wasn't a panic attack due to figuring out a few things in my head, and more down to weight and what I was carrying.

UPDATE: 15th Feb 2017
My car is currently off the road due to clutch problems, yesterday I had to go on a bus to get to my father and meet him, not too much…

A Moving Time...

Well its a time for moving it seems. 

My best friend, Neil, is almost all moved in to his temporary flat while his is getting renovated.  
Another friend is moving from his flat in to his Mum's one, and his Mum is moving in to a new flat. 

I am finally moving in to the Swansea area at long last, the Bonymaen area to be exact, after being given a flat by Family Housing.

On top of all this moving that is going on a festival to go to, Nozstock in Hereforshire, and then off in August on a European back packing holiday for a month.... can't wait!

But not sure when I've moved in to Swansea what direction to go with my life. I want to keep doing radio, but where?.... carry on at Bro Radio in Barry or try to go back to where I got the radio bug in the first place and aim for hospital radio in Llanelli and BGM?... or I cold get back in to DJing again

Hmmmmm.... not sure what to do

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems.

The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK.

David Cameron is to stand down ( real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship.

One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote

Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today 'We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week.
We need to make sure the …

DAB on the M4

In the car I have been testing something out - between Cardiff and Swansea, and discovered that D1 an the SDL multiplexes are poor in coverage compared to the Swansea multiplex which covers most of my journey.

A drop out on most multiplexes around the Sarn/Bridgend turn off on the M4, but from junction 33 to junction 42.

The Swansea multiplex has me tuned in - Swansea Sound gets my vote radio wise between J33 and J42

The South East Wales multiplex just about gets to Porthcawl turn off befor turning in to burbling mud.

... After Pnumonia


Well back in August 2015 I ended up in Llandough Hospital with Pnumonia. It was no fun being hooked up to machines having drips going in to you for 3 days.

Staying in bed or sitting in a chair was no fun for someone who likes to keep busy helping others and volunteering.

My legs swelled up and so did my feet. I was looked after very well by the hospital staff, just want to say a huge thank you to them, and to the doctors at Lansdowne Surgery as well for their care.

Anyway back home now, itching to get stuck in to things, but am due to have various scans and appointments.

Got a scan of my heath comming up, as well as a scan of my abdomen area, a chest x-ray, and a possible scan of my liver too if the blood results come back iffy.

I have also got an appointment coming up with Dr Pink (that's the doctor I am seeing for my lung problem) and also with the Chest Pain Clinic.

I am still getting chest pains, on ventalin and a spray for my heart, but one bit of good news - I seem …
