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

Can I embarrass everyone with my swimming?  I've done 16.6k this week and a total of 31.4k for the year

This weekend was only 5k though as I had a rest day yesterday

lol Caz - I was just thinking that I'll bet you've swam more miles than I've run.  Now to convert k to miles and add to the tally. Lets see if we can collectively beat it next week. I like the idea of the group thing, sort of takes some pressure off it getting individually competitive. 

Caz - 10 miles swim 

Total - 41.

Bricki - I apologise that I've got behind with your blog. I will try and catch up later.

Embarrass away, please could you mileify and add it
Hopefully I'll make a contribution next week. I am a bit sad, it's entirely my own fault though cos I haven't been taking the anti d's. I don't understand why I do that

Norty solb not takin tablits. 

My sin is to run out just before I go away. So I end up taking one every other day to make them last till I can get an new supply and after about 4 days I'm waking up in a sweat with anxiety for no reason. I have to put in for a repeat prescription on Tuesday at the latest or I'm in trouble again. I'm meant to have a review next week to stop them but I daren't, I'm sure I'm no where near ready for that.

So where are we about it?
13/01/2013 at 21:14

41? with more still to add.

Will your doc take your feelings into account SD?
13/01/2013 at 21:39

I'm sure he will Solb. I'm thinking about another 3 months to give me some stability in an non-stressed work place. I've always suffered anxiety though, even as a chlid I had school phobia,  and the anti ds have helped with this no end, so I'm keen to stay on a reduced dose long term.

It's good that you feel confident with your plan, it made me sad to think of little Soupy having a school phobia though (((little soupy)))

I was shocking at school but didn't know any different. I went to a traditional grammar school and at every school assembly they would read out the list of people in detention that day. I was always really anxious that I might be on the list and no matter how many times I was told that I'd know if I was and that I would have done something wrong, it didn't help. And I worried that my homework wasnt good enough and would skive off for the day to avoid handing it in. Its only now that I realise how abnormal that was.

Oh wow you poor little soul, life must have been so tough with so much fear around. Guess you must have strived so hard to be 'good' too. (((little soupy))) times a million ... wish we could pop back and tell little soupy that it was all gonna be OK 

13/01/2013 at 22:45

aw thanks Solb. Actually, thats the first time I've openly admitted my school problems. 

13/01/2013 at 22:48

How do you feel about it? hope it hasn't made you feel too vulnerable x

13/01/2013 at 22:54

No not at all. I think its progress.

Well I've fallen foul of the midnight rule, but I'm working really, really hard and even though I feel a bit rubbishy at the moment I feel confident if I can just push on with some regular exercise and more of a routine my mood will pick up .... oh yeah and actually taking all of the meds I'm prescribed 

With that I'm off to bed, night night all xxx
