I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
I think we need a bigger hugs blanket.
By eck, I can't imagine the stress and frustration you must be under. I wish I could give you a propper big real hug. Can you phone the hospital for any advice?
I had a little wobble today but it was for the right reasons. I was asked a couple of times today about why I had been moved to work there, leaving my old job in chaos. They had been really nice and said they hoped I would stay on the lead up to it so I took a deep breath and told them I'd had a breakdown and that I needed a change to get my confidence back. They were very good and understanding and I then had to fight back tears for a couple of hours. I didn't say anything about relationship difficulties with my old colleagues though and don't plan to.
Anxiety is awful. I hate that more than the depression. My initial therapist before the funding was cut was great at helping me on that. He said that I see a paper tiger and react as if its a real one. I found that a good way of explaining to people.
Hope tomorrow brings more joy.
Thanks, fros t, haven't heard of that but will certainly try it.
Bricki's next instalment is obviously keenly anticipated.
Well done, SD. Hopefully that clears the air on that one and you don't need to worry about it coming up again.
Hope it goes better for you next time Lincoln Runner, I am also a runner from Lincoln (we probably go to the same club?) If it is that club then there's so many of them its hard to get to know people lol. Different faces each time, hard to find your place amongst them.
Night night all
(welcome Fresco *waves frantically*)
Thanks, Fresco. I think it is a different club though as a bit of research seems to show you're with Lakeside? It will help with a second group being set up on a Thursday though - so I won't have my problem with my phobia of fitter runners then.
Night, SOLB. Saying 'Yah boo, sucks' to the midnight rule tonight by the looks of it. I'm impressed.
Used to be with Lakeside, should maybe update my profile!
Oh, right. I was being extra devious and looking at results from a certain race you did about a year ago. I was entered for the same race - but wrote it on my calendar as Sunday instead of Saturday. Not suprisingly when I turned up there was no-one there. My postings today are giving the impression that I'll come up with any excuse not to run - as in my 'Please sir, I can't do orienteering today. I left my kit in the Lake District' that I mentioned earlier.
Got to drag myself out there again. Whilst I've been feeling better this week, I've had that feeling that, even a temporary setback would be quite tough to deal with. As it is, I've got to look at it as - it's the wrong end of Friday, just got to push on with the day and look forward to the right end.
Have taken positive action though, have sent a message to the run leader last night about what happened and asked for it to be passed onto other run leaders in the club as I think it would make things easier for me there if others are aware of my situation. Obviously, as it proved last night - one person already is!
*sends Paddington stares to the receptionist*
For once I don't have anything to say, but I'm still here handing out hugs
Good you hear you got sorted Mr F. Quiet day on here for once. Not so for me, really hectic at work. That suits my mood just fine, just that in current state it is very tiring so I'm ready to take it easy. I've been sensible and have turned down an orienteering event tomorrow. Got a really nice message back from last night's run leader who welcomed my explanation as she was concerned about me.
Sorry I've not posted in ages, I've now got the internet after moving house. Seriously, how do people live without it? It's so useful!
Hi Mr F, a book sounds good.
I get anxious over small things too, sometimes I can't even tell why. I'm more anxious than usual as I've started a new job.
Hope everyone's good.
Hi Ben-o, glad you've got the internet sorted. Getting quite a good gathering on here so it's good to be able to add another former regular to that. My laptop screen display is gradually going on the blink. I constantly hold off getting anything done about it because I don't want to be without it.
Good luck with the new job. Hope you've had chance to catch up with SOLB's impressive recent progress which we're all really pleased about.
