I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
solby reporting in, thanks for the hugs and the concern. Things are a little tough but I think they will improve. I do have a Community Psychiatric Nurse assigned to me - I've only known her about 4 months but I've had someone acting as a Key Worker for the last 8ish years. I'm working on the last of the OCD stuff and hoping to be discharged completely by June. I think the current blip is mostly paranoia so upping the anti psychotics may be the only solution. (I'm not hallucinating though - as far as I can tell)So, so lovely to see some new faces (and the old ones of course) it's fab when the thread is lively I may be quiet for another day or two but I promise I'm really OK, just having to work hard to stay afloat. I'm doing all the right stuff, focusing on eating properly, remembering to sleep and getting outside each day to stop the paranoia trapping me in the house. It feels like it might be easing a bit today but I don't wanna speak too soon. I've read back but promptly forgot all the things I wanted to say. I'll just leave you all with massive of care and hopefully check in again tomorrow (VRC 2 miles planned tomorrow - thanks for the pace reassurance I was a bit saddened by my pace the other day even though I should just be thrilled to be back out there so it was a timely reminder for me that it doesn't matter so much)
Bricki I hope you don't mind, I've not read your blog today - you write so powerfully I thought it might be a bit too much. My thoughts are with you though
I'm off to bed now (still no better with the midnight rule obviously) Night night xxxx
Stay positive SOLB - its just a blip that I'm sure you will work through. Hope you manage to run your 2 miles.
My first day back at work today and going in to my new job. I'm relieved not to be going back to a toxic environment but I'm a bit nervous. Got a swimming lesson this evening that I'm looking forward to though.
Hugs all round.
SOLB - good to hear from you. Really hope you work through your blip and, of course, we'll be encouraging and supporting you all the way. I'm hoping to head out to the nature park about midday. Another slow start to the day though. Glad I took the day off as getting to work would have been a major struggle.
SD - too late to wish you good luck in the new job in advance but hope it all goes well for you.
Don't forget everyone, we're due on cheerleading duties for Bear tonight at his improvisation course.
Thanks for the article, Mr F. Looks really useful.
I have runned
Completely out of puff in spite of 10min/mile
I'm guessing but you may also find that you don't get so much of a zonked out feeling for a few hours when the meds first take effect as it'll be spread out more
I'm only fed up with 10mm as I used to run sub 7
Oh might be the other way around from slow to normal - whatever
Hope so, then I wouldnt have to take the morning dose at 5 anymore you'll get there Bear, get some time on your paws and the rest will come
*looks at paws quizzically*
I resorted to self-bribery to get me running today. If I ran I could have lunch in the cafe afterwards, but not if I didn't. Was out for 36 minutes. Started and finished reasonably well but stopped and walked a while around half way. Worth it though - tasty cauliflower bake for lunch.
Well done on getting out there Bear even if the pace was not would you'd like. As with everything, we can only take it all one stage at a time.
SOLB -good to hear of your solution. Let's hope that gets things back on track.
