I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Oh, by 'eck, don't know what to suggest. Must be so difficult for you.
Yey - for positive vibes from Bear though.
Hi, Frodo. How you doing? I've been reading your blog about Benny whilst registering a world record attempt for the number of times going 'Ahhhh!' during one blog reading.
One bit on the blog, (going to Lake District but leaving running shoes in Manchester) reminded me of when I did something similar. I'd been on holiday in the Lake District and was going to do an orienteering event near Settle on my way home. Got to the event and went to the boot of my car for my kit, when I realised I'd failed to empty one drawer when packing and my stuff was still all back in the Lake District. Just had to get past the embarrasment of driving straight back past the guys manning the car park no doubt wondering I was leaving straight after arriving. That was a long day's driving.
Two hug deserving posts there ((((Frodo + By 'eck))))
Helping myself to some hugs from the blanket as I bottled it tonight in front of everybody. A friend said she was going to turn up but didn't and it was all disgustingly fit runners there. I felt trapped with no way out at that point so started off but didn't last long before making my excuses and heading back to the car. The one good thing is that this will act as a prompt to explain how things are for me and, in turn, people can be more understanding of my anxiety and how difficult it is for me. Even so, I'm just really shaken up from the experience now.
Hello everybody (I said hello to the headmistress earlier on).
re tinnitus, I have this as well and drink ginko tea, which I happen to like. I ran out and didn't bother with buying anymore for about a week until I awake one morning to raging drums in the head, every burglar alarm going off and me trying to sleep inside the washing machine. Well that's what it sounded like. So went back on the ginko tea to try and bring it all back under control. Which I think it has done. Using the pc is really bad for me but I do it anyway and pay the price. Don't know if you've tried it or used it? It works for me.Having said that, sleeping in the Welsh hills away from any traffic at all is the best cure. Peaceful as peaceful can be.
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.
