Today I Lost My Job
But there is a silver lining…
I lost my job today after 6 weeks sickness with fibromyalgia after it started to get worse. I had worked for them for 3 years and 7 months and this termination came after a friendly discussion about my return to work two weeks eariler. It was a bit of a shock but it has provided me with an opportunity: I’m going to be working to start a gaming studio with friends, whilst I’ve got severence pay for 6 months. This is something that I feel is long over due, so I’m both excited and scared at the same time heh
Here is a little taster about the game studio project:
This is what we will being using to develop the game:
Is there anyone else out there about to start up a business of their own, or has any other advice?
I had a little incident this week that moved me so I decided to write about it in my blog For The Hole Inside Everyone. The post is called ‘What a Little Kindness Will Do‘ and it’s about how little things can get under our skin or turn our day around completely.
As you all know I suffer with the Auto-Immune Diseases Fibromyalgia and ME. I was watching a recent Ted Talk and found this wonderful site: PatientsLikeMe.com. I rushed out an created a profile and added it to my website. I will be filling out more details of my contions and sharing my data publically for the benefit of others. You can see my PLM Profile here or on the new ‘Fibro’ link on my menu on my website.
Anyway that’s all I really had to share for now, but I already recommend this site it to anyone with any life changing condition, as it not just for my particular disease. It’s incredible and check out the Ted Talk for more details on how it works and the amazing breakthrough they have done.

Well it’s 2010, a new year, a new decade. After doing my Close the Year 2009 yesterday I’ve now done my intentions or resolutions for 2010, what I’m aiming for and what I would like to see happen over the course of the next year.
My post is on my blog For The Hole Inside Everyone and it’s called Start the Year: Resolutions 2010.
Hope you had a great time last night!
Peace, Niamh xxx
GODT NYTAAR! / HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I’ve just published my annual Close the Year review for 2009. This is something I began last year after I started publishing my resolutions in 2007. It was a nice way to look over the year and see what I’ve achieved and what I want to let go of. I can quiet easily forget the things I’ve accomplished so this is a way for me to remind myself of the good I’ve done in the year.
You can see my review at my blog For The Hole Inside Everyone called: Close the Year: Review 2009
Have a great time tonight, I’m waiting for the ring of fireworks to start around us (last time then went on until about 1am!)

Just a quick post to say I’ve made a few updates on the Passion For Poker poker blog recently about where things are going right now. Also I’ve created a new blog post from The Hole Inside Everyone called Ageism Works Both Ways about an experience I had yesterday out in the city to do with disability prejudice.
Anyway that’s all for now,
Take Care Folks!
…if you do you might be interested in my latest For The Hole Inside Everyone blog post: Why Fatigue Is An Isolating Force. Even if you don’t have Fibromyalgia or ME you may still want to read it, as we all get overworked from time to time and many of us have social anxiety disorders. It’s also in relation to how fatigue can keep us apart, how much effort relationships can be and why some of us opt to be hermits instead.
