Sorry to hear that Bricki. My day starts to get a bit chaotic in 15 minutes. Oh well, I'll he walking about 4 miles...

Sorry to hear about the back Bricki


In good news my baking book has arrived, plus I've managed to book to teach anatomy next week


Just to make things tough it's a revision session which means I could get asked about anything they've done so far.  One of my biggest source of wibbles is not knowing an answer, so this is going to be a challenge to me, but it'll be great to get back to having a purpose and feel like I'm doing something useful.


No opening pressies until tomorrow SOLB

Has anyone else read Mind's blog post for today. Made me cry. So much of that I can relate to.

Do you have a link by 'eck?


This is pretty good

Is this it by 'eck?

03/12/2012 at 16:23
Yes. I didn't sit in A&E but so much of it is sadly true.

It is the second one. It makes me very angry. Any hospital that left someone with a broken leg in physical pain because they were too busy, or laughed at a cancer patient whose hair had fallen out because of chemo would be hung out to dry

Just found it on my news feed, I thought I was subscribed to Mind

I'm not looking at the blog cos it'll make me sad and cross but sadly I'm pretty sure I can guess the contents!

I have fantastic news. I only have one more session with Vicky then I'm freeeeee. Vicky says there's another way of working against the OCD that's particularly helpful in people with a trauma background. She is going to have a chat with Sally to see what she thinks about adopting it moving forwards as both Sally and I feel I'm making progress but that our meetings aren't helpful at the moment.

I wanted my diagnosis formally changed (cos it's only been done internally and I'll be leaving the CMHT soon - woo hoo!) Vicky has said there are a few questions in the formal assessment that she feels would destabilise me too much. She is a specialist (head of profession) with 37 years experience in disociative disorders so she is going to write a discharge letter explaining the diagnosis and include an article about DID for my GP instead..if it's not too revealing I'll post it for you guys to read too

I've just done some scheming to help SOLBsis feel special tomorrow

Ooooh I guess it's SOLBsis's buffday too

Good evening - painting done for the evening so a shower is now in order
03/12/2012 at 20:44
Yep indeedy, twins have to be good at sharing!
Ooo congrats Bricki - sounds like you've been really productive today.

I am going to re-attempt swimming now. I'm hoping not to burst into tears and run away like a total pillock today!

Good luck sweetie

03/12/2012 at 22:23
4 lengths, feel totally awful now and I suspect I'll be in the shower for ages but wow! I had to wear a paper wrist band, I'm being a sentimental idiot and keeping it

03/12/2012 at 22:30



Why did you have to wear a wristband?

03/12/2012 at 23:45

Well done, SOLB.  You may feel awful but it's really impressive that you tried again and suceeded so soon after an unsuccesful attempt.  Happy birthday for you and SOLBsis tomorrow.  Great to hear that you've got good news going today.  Hopefully will help make it good one tomorrow.

I've been out this evening seeing The Damned.  Was in two minds about whether it was the right thing to do after a day at work.  I often need some 'me' time before facing another day but I'd promised a friend I'd be going.  Turned out OK..  When I see a band and they come on, I often think - this is going to be at least an hour and a half - how am i going to get through it - but whilst I didn't feel brilliant I at least felt I was OK to get through it.
