Mental illness and running

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

Hopefully this year will be wonderful by eck, you deserve to have a brilliant time

I'm very very tired. Have had a lovely weekend staying with my best friend OCD was ridiculously well behaved. (cos my beautiful friend had spent lots of time outwitting it!) I felt really happy, and comfortable and safe. I don't even feel safe in my own house so that's pretty impressive.

I ate some food, that she'd prepared, with her. I thought I was going to fail cos my anxiety level got really high but I didn't and I'm exhausted but so so delighted. I can't believe how much better the ocd is and how lucky I am to be surrounded by wonderful friends that love me as I really am and don't mind the mental illness

I feel really lucky to have stumbled across you lot!

I wrote a fab post and it lost it.
There was gingerbread, friends fighting our ocd and depression alongside us, nd me asking if you'd received my text, Solb.

Solb, that is an excellent reason to forget to reply
Frodo, how are you this evening? Any more small steps forward?

SOLB's best friend also had a fabulous time The OCD stuff simply wasn't an issue at all, and I am still grinning from ear to ear that we had a proper meal together with a glass of wine. I haven't laughed so much for a long time. There was a particular moment during our walk which comprised bright blue knee high socks and a runner...I'm still grinning thinking of it

Lots of love to you all xx

Ok, my special hot chocolate made with cinnamon infused milk, and topped with cream, grated orange zest and a flake.
