I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
prod me to tidy up please
Need to shop first, just putting my shoes on
I wondered why I was getting stared at
I did, I got nanas and pineapple and doughnuts and sossidges
Sounds like we have some thread good news to celebrate

Ooo how odd, I posted a proper post yesterday and it's written an old one instead!!
I do have great news. I talked to Vicky about feeling like we are about done with the art psychotherapy and how I just feel different and I feel more grounded and connected. I know I haven't got complete control over the alters and other stuff but I feel like I know how to fix it by myself now. Vicky agreed we are having a CPA review next week to workout how many session we need to have left and to finalise a discharge plan. I am so thrilled. It's only been a year and has changed so, so much. The weird thing was I didn't really feel it working then all of us sudden everything just started clicking into place. It just feels right that we should end thereapy now
I will still see Sally for the OCD therapy and she is still my CPN and I will still be on the anti-psychotics (the last episode wasn't very long ago) and the anti depressants for the foreseeable future but I feel like I have the tools to try to cope. Not to be magically better and never have any problems but to understand what's happening and find a way forward.
I am so happy I want to have a celebration after my last therapy session, cos it's been 6 years since I was last able to walk all by myself like this (that time only lasted 3 months but it was because I wasn't really ready I just wanted to be ready)
If I am wrong and I can't cope I'll just have to contact Vicky and I can see her again; either just to get through a shortterm problem or to work through the stuff we haven't done yet but I feel I can now manage.
Hello Mima, How lovely to hear from you, I was thinking of you yesterday and hoping you were OK ... I *may* have asked SCaz if you were OK
Thrilled the stress levels are now reducing.
I agree 8 months always sounds like forever but the therapy will appear before you know it. It'd be nice if waiting lists weren't so long but they are much better than they used to be and it does at least give you time to work out what you need and see if there's anything you can do to help yourself in the meantime.
Good luck for the first counselling session. Glad you are being supported.
Ha ha ha to our Bear parading around the shops in just his shoes!!
*does a happy dance with SOLB*
That's fabulous news sweetie
Poor Moo - hope he heals quickly.
Just been out for a bike ride having put my shoes on again (cue weird image) - it's raining which I didn't realise but my knee seems okay for cycling if a bit sore. I'll try one more slightly longer bike ride and then try going to the gym for a swim
Later in the week I think, don't want to overdo it
My to do list needs redoing since my computer auto-shut down and lost the old one
