What’s Jae’s Journey About?
In a nutshell, Jae’s journey is about transformation. When I started this journey I was struggling, really struggling. I am a recovering porn and masturbation addict, and like other addicts I have recurring mental health issues.
This is my on-going journey.
Hard Mode Updates
This has been my first update in a while, so whats been happening? Well, as things stand I have been porn and masturbation free for 83 days today! Go me!…lol
The Less Good News
That’s the good news, the less good news is that we still haven’t found another property to rent as yet, our landlord is being ‘tolerant’ with us, but I do wonder how long that will last. I told him a few weeks back that I am not going to move my disabled partner and children into a substandard property just to please him. If he doesn’t like it then he will just have to take us to court, and legally speaking we haven’t done a thing wrong.
Anyway, let us see what the next few weeks bring.
The Bad News
Now, the really not good news is that last week I found out that my dad has a terminal brain tumor and he has been given just 6 months to live. There is no treatment that is available to him because physically he is very weak and it would be unlikely that he would survive the treatment.
My dad hasn’t had the best year so far, as back in the summer he under went a quadruple heart bypass, which to be honest I didn’t expect him to survive due to his other medical issues.
The only good news concerning my dad is that he isn’t in pain, and it is unlikely that he will experience any for the remainder of his time.

Darkest Before The Dawn
These last few weeks haven’t been easy for me, but I am still maintaining a sense of emotional balance which I am actually pleasantly surprised about. I am not sure how often I will be able to write considering the challenges that I am facing regarding our housing situation and the illness of my dad, oh and I almost forgot, I could also be facing unemployment due to challenges within my company.
Like the rest of us, I have two options to facing my challenges, one is to be crushed and defeated by them, and the other is to rise and face them head on. I have been crushed in the past, and I know how it makes me feel, so I choose to rise and look my challenges square in the eyes and face my fears head on.
Onwards dear friends!
