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

I didn't get my bum pinched at all

Bet you did by the zombies. Carrying your lives by your bum has it's hazards!

Pssst, there's a couple of cakes going spare....

We had three lives (velcro tags) hanging from a belt the lives were lost when the zombies swiped them ... much accidental undead groping ensued.

I want cake but I have no butter and no sugar *sulks*

I fell in love with a mug of tea back at Hash's house

I thought hash was a bloke...

I'm sure Hash will forgive you; she's tiny and delicate and not even slightly bloke like!

As I learned from the picture.
I think the nightmares may return tonight but I have Timmy sleeping on my feet so he will protect me. I have ended up with a stinking headache and very painful shoulders so I think that is all a sign of stress/release of the high stress levels that have built up and should now be subsiding.

Hopefully you'll fall into a nice, deep dreamless sleep honey. Glad that the stress levels can start to subside (((by eck)))

Things I have done tonight ( in case any of these suggestions may help others)

Worn my favourite pyjamas
Cut my fingernails ( in case I start scratching myself)
Rubbed in body lotion to stop my skin feeling 'wrong'
Put a soothing scent onto my pillow to trigger the happy stuff
Opened the window and curtains slightly so I don't feel trapped

Thank you for sharing that, I really hope that it works sweetheart x

Good night by eck

 

I should probably head off soon

Me too, last of the awful review sessions with Vicky tomorrow and a run
18/11/2012 at 22:52
Night all. Sleep well. I'll be round in the morning with cups of tea, and scrambled egg on toast

Shops and bicycling for me plus lots of other bits.

 

I seem to have lost my to do list

hello my lovely lot...seems like forever since I last posted...things have been all over the shop.

Things have settled down at work, everyone is being nice and getting on well...stress levels have been astronomical because of the audit but that is over now.

I had my first assessment with the mental health link working last week - she was lovely and I didn't cry. I'm reacting well to the anti depressants with the exception of alcohol...makes me a bit/very ill if I drink so safer if I don't...which is ok.

So...back to MH...I have to stay on the meds for a while. I have been referred for counselling and also for Phase/Stage 3 CBT...but that could take 8 months to come through. My thoughts are I've lived with this for 20 years, another 8 months won't matter much.

We had a very honest discussion...about lots of things. My rules, my list issue, restrictions I place on myself etc...turns out I do more rules than I realised...and facing the issue could take a long time...but I've made the first steps - now for some changes. First proper counselling session, December 14th. Meep.

Sometimes the hardest part is realising the limitations we put on ourselves as part if our coping mechanism.
Today, moo and I are going to sort out the textile recycling for miss BE to take into school on Friday

That all sounds positive Mima

 

Managed to get up "early" today - need to go shopping

 

Hope therapy wasn't too exhausting SOLB
