Mental illness and running

I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Oooooooo *grins nervously but puts the pom poms down cos her arms are aching*

I had my heart set on reattempting to run mud mountain today but my asthma is playing up. I'll go to the gym instead and I can do mud mountain after therapy tomorrow.

I'm feeling a bit lazy altogether, maybe I'll just call it a rest day. I'm trying to get balanced with running and gymming cos I could feel an obsession forming. I think the horror I just felt at the idea of a rest day is a good indicator I should take one. I'm nervous cos feeling so overwhelmed by the broken hot water interrupting so many rituals is putting me at risk of creating new ones and making the ones the CPN and I have already beaten stronger.

The demons poked and prodded and did their best to make me stop ( seeing a guy partway round who was the spitting image of one of my nasty people didn't help) but I found some wonderful wonderful angels including a lady on a bike who gave me a banana and water, and the tail end Charlie who stayed with us when my friend and I were determined to finish.
Oh, and the jelly babies miraculously found their way to some very kind children who sat in their front gardens and offered us tasty treats, water, huge cheers and even bigger smiles.

Well done!
You should be so proud of what you've achieved

Weird double post above.

By Eck that's a phenomenal race report. It's an even greater achievement for all the challenges you faced today. I'm in awe. So, so pleased you finished. That achievement lasts forever

*hugs by eck again ... gently*

My anxiety levels have finally come down a bit today. I've barely moved and done nothing productive at all but I feel calmer. Hope I get some news on the boiler tomorrow.

Therapy and either running mud mountain or the gym tomorrow depending on the asthma

Clever bear

I had a really heavy session with Vicky but its pulled some stuff into focus. I also did something I'm really pleased with today.
I'll explain later, for now I'm at the gym so I need to get out of the car and get moving (so I can eat biscuits later!)

Bear, I had venlafaxine and had a couple of problems. The ones I had were very rare. If you want to know more I am happy to share. I know of other people who had no problems at all
