I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
That's brilliant SOLB
I think I want to do more cooking - I always used to love cooking but have rather stopped lately because of low mood
First step is to clean up the kitchen so that I can see the work surfaces again
I don't really need to gain weight, I'd fecked up my metabolism so monumentally that I didn't start losing it until I started eating more (I know that doesn't sound like it can be true, but it really is) I think the anti psychotics affect the way your body makes and stores fat too the mostly I think it was the repetitive accidental fasting.
I just need to make sure I don't lose too much and get it stable and healthy and nice and normal
I think appreciating food for something other than whether it conforms to the rules will help loads. I think I'm not bothered about food but then I never do more than the most basic cooking, I don't bother adding sauces or spices or even combining stuff especially ... I was really shocked at all the layers of flavour in Sossidge's butternut squash curry cos I don't cook properly and I've not eaten other people's food for years ..... kinda cool journey I get to go on
SOLBTitchysis needs some food making for her to take home and put in the freezer cos she can't stand and cook after her knee operation so if it's not horrific I can help her too
We can cheerlead with kitchen ... I wonder if it's best to get some order first. I move all the washing up to one space, then throw away any rubbish. Give the sink and draining board a quick clean then do the washing up followed by the satisfying magic wipe down of the sides (which makes everything so much better) then I clean the cooker...I suspect it doesn't matter which order you do it (within reason) but having smaller jobs within the whole that you can tick off and achieve makes it easier if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed. Wish we could help
I am building my new "to do" list - just wish I could get up more easily but I lie in a daze then all of a sudden something clicks and I feel compelled to get up.
Yay for my cheerleaders
We can nag about eating stuff (but really I'm just so pleased to see your progress)
thanks me too, it's not that I have nothing left to fight but after so long of fighting and fighting and feeling like I was getting nowhere all of us sudden everything is just clicking into place. I feel like the real me behind all the difficulties in life and in the psychiatric stuff is just so much stronger. I feel like I know who I am at last. The nicest bit of all is that I'm able to be real Solb with the mini's who I've barely wanted to see for the last 18 months cos pretending to be me was just too exhausting.
I still can't get my head around how much better I am. I don't mind that I'll still have all the little battles to fight, it's just so amazing to be me fighting them
Ooo it's late. I had better get to bed
Night night all,
Night lovely xxxxxxxx
I want to go to the gym and I need to go to the post office so clothes would be a good idea at some point!
I love the thought of Moo's car enjoying the choral music
Hope it goes well with your Mum today, will be thinking of you
*bounces on Bear's bed* that ought to help
I've eaten yoghurt for breakfast but I'm looking through recipe books now what do you all want for lunch?
Grrr I slept in again, didn't helkp that I forgot to set the alarm clock. I must get into a routine of getting up as soon as I wake up. Just the act of getting vertical helps.
What piece of choral music are we talking about, by 'eck? I've recently started liking choral music thanks to the wonderful Eric Whitacre who writes the most goose bumpingly gorgeous stuff. I got to see him at the proms and it's even more amazing live
Blech it's blowing like a good 'un out there
