SOLB you were fabulous today, great to see you again and the others of course.

 

I had a good day too, almost felt back to normal after feeling out of sorts last night - I'm weirdly up and down at the moment. Too sleepy to write a race report now zzzzz

Thank you bear  

So lovely to hear you felt almost back to normal. I'm guessing you are tired out today. I think it's nice to remember that the good days are possible again though  

I was attacked my zombies yesterday, today I was Dr Frankenstien's monster being attacked by 4 year old witches, wolves, superheros and skeletons - eeeek

I'm tired out but glad I did so much living this weekend (while being undead!)

Is too tired to do much else but smile

A smile sounds pretty good to me, even if it is a sleepy smile

I am exhausted today - slept for twelve hours and then SC woke me up. Just had a three hour nap and still feeling tired.

 

 your party today looked fabulous

 

Living this weekend felt great

*raps Solb's knuckles with the wooden spoon* you need to wait until I've mixed it properly then you can scrape out the bowl

I don't suppose you fancy doing mine while you're at it?

29/10/2012 at 07:18
Cheers Solb. You don't fancy doing the rest of the house while you're at it?

Looks like a load of positivity has been happening in here
Could I borrow a bit this morning, please?
29/10/2012 at 08:18

Yes Frodo you most certainly can *dispatches positivity and a virtual hug* 

I'm off to therapy (hopefully via the shower as I still have a rather yellow hue from yesterdays monstering - I thought this blinking stuff was washable!!)

( Frodo, do you want first stir of this thread's Christmas cake?)

Right, this week is half term. I tend to worry a lot about school holidays because I find it hard trying to occupy the two children when they ilike doing very different tthings. Moo likes running around,exploring, destroying everything as he works out how things works. Little miss is nearly 7 years older and wants to play with her friends, go shopping, make and bake. We always survive and I have a couple good things planned

Thanks for the good vibes. They weren't able to change something that I now know was inevitable, but they were appreciated.
I'm pretty low again, but not giving up
I hope therapy went well, SOLB?

*syphons off cake mixture while no one is looking*

Hey Frodo

I'm glad you aren't giving up, am here if you need some support (or a rant) I'm sending lots and lots of love and a massive cuddle. 

Therapy went really well, was a good session. I got to tell Vicky that I feel like it's really working and I just feel better underneath all the wibbles and wobbles, it's like my base line is higher. 

I made her laugh by saying can we not just shake all the 'alters' out and squish them; I wanted to force the process a bit to make some more progress. Vicky laughed and said it really doesn't work like that but she must have listened too as next week we are going to review some of the stuff I've drawn; including stuff when I was in a 'blank' and Vicky thinks I was someone else. Sounds really weird but I'm glad she's letting me push it a bit. 

I really, truly believe that I'll get better not just from the dissociative identity disorder thingie but from the OCD too. It's really cool I dont think I've ever felt that a recovery was actually possible before. I'm hoping that by this time next year I won't be seeing Vicky or Sally (CPN) anymore cos I won't need to. 

I bumped into a snotty cow who I used to work with today, she gave me the most superior smirk I've ever seen as we walked into the library - I smirked right back as I imagined shoving her head first into the huge book bin that was next to us! 

Haven't seen creepy neighbour for a week (he's still banging away up there so I assume it's a massive binge and he'll emerge looking yellow and crumpled soon) so I braved chopping the grass. I'm glad I've done so much work on the wilderness over the last few weeks - it looks so much better and not a lion or jungle in sight. 

*passes Frodo a mug of tea to take the too-much-sugar-feel-sick headache away and hides the empty cake tin in the corner*
