Mental illness and running

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

I think the one thing that would be good to achieve would be if I could manage a run after work tomorrow.  I'm not sure I feel up to getting back to the Monday night group that I'm supposed to be running with but after today's efforts a shorter run on my own from home would be a more achievable target.  Hopefully should be having a run with work colleagues after work on Tuesday.  All cheerleading welcome - altogether now R-U-D-O-L-P-H.

I'm so pleased somebody got that.  I felt sure it was going to be greeted with a 'who's he?'.  Thought it was about time I made use of those symbols.  I don't want anyone thinking I never show any emoti(c)on.

Enough stalling on my part I'm off to do my e-mail 'coming out' about my depression to the orienteering club members.  Got to be done before I get into another week with excuses about not enough time etc.

Good luck Rudolph; hopefully it'll get easier once you start

Christmas names are all fab. Can't wait for the new avatars to come live. 

Good luck on the email Rudolf.

Frodo - I struggle in groups sometimes too. Sounds like you did well though. 

I had a lovely weekend with family thanks. Haven't seen my Mum for about 4 months. Gave her tickets for Strictly live tour for Christmas and told her me and my sister are taking her to see Robbie Williams in June for her birthday. She'll be 82!  

Yes Im back at work tomorrow and I've got a meeting with the person investigating the bullying I've complained of under the Dignity at Work policy. I put the complaint in in June would you believe and its against the main antagonist and the senior manager who refused to investigate and blamed me for the problem, saying I had to wait for the tablets to take effect.  Its not going to be easy, but I'm glad its finally happening. My fear is that they will say there is no evidence, just my word against theirs because thats the reason HR gave for not investigating so far. Fingers crossed.

Good luck for tomorrow TSD.

Job done - e-mail sent.  The words came a lot easier than I thought they would.

I've just realised that in addition to the cheerleading I've now got a song to turn to to give me encouragement to get out and run:

Oh well done LR. Make sure you report in about your run tomorrow too.

Good luck at the doctors SolBells 

Wishing everyone a good night's sleep.

Oh yes, with all the other goings on forgot about SOLeighBell's appointment.  Hope it goes OK.

Got three messages of support back from my e-mail already.  Thanks go to everyone on here because it's thanks to the supportive nature of people on this forum that I realised that this was the right next step for me to take.

"Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A new-born king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum

Peace on Earth, can it be?
Years from now, perhaps we'll see
See the day of glory
See the day, when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again
Peace on Earth,
Can it be"



Merry Morning
