I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Welcome ctpotato! Always good to see a new face
Top up hugs for by 'eck (((by 'eck))).
Welcome ctpotato. Just been having a read of your blog. Stay around and I'm sure you'll find plenty of support and encouragement.
Hi ctpotatoe. Really like the blog . Yeah, focusing on events does help, i find structure helps me a lot..it gives me a purpose and those days where its just hard to get up and face the world, if I've planned a run then it gives me a bit more of a push....which makes this snow suck so much .Still finding today tough. But deicded tomorrow I'm just going to go out and hit the fields. It won't be fast but I'll try and just enjoy it...hopefully...
by'eck...lots of hugs. I hope everything goes ok.
Evening. Glad to hear about Moo getting the attention he needs.
Hugs to Caz and by 'eck. Wish they could be real ones.
Big welcome to ctpotato. I'm into triathlon too so will read your blog with interest. I'm another one for writing it down to work things through. I started with a note book but then got worried about who else might see it so resorted to scraps of paper I could throw away. (don't know why, there is only me and Mr Soup at home). I looked at some of my old stuff in the book recently and realised how far I've come. At times I still feel my arms tingling, especially at night but breathing through my abdomen seems to resolve it. Anxiety is still grossly misunderstood. Depression seems to be getting more publicity which is good, but at the expense of other mental health conditions I fear.
Speaking of blogs, anyone got any contact details for Bricki? Bricki if you are reading this please pop in just to say you are okay.
It is concerning about Bricki. I've been doing some digging around to see if he's been active on Twitter and a Man Utd site he contributes to - but seems to have been quiet on there as well.
I thought that was supposed to be next month. Could have changed I suppose.
Difficult one - I'm a bit wary of asking others he's been in contact with on Twitter. Not really fair if they don't know about his depression and he wouldn't want them to know.
Off into work early again. Can't decide whether to walk or drive at the moment.
By 'eck - hope it goes OK today.
SOLB - hope you're OK.
Thanks for the ((hugs)) - no need to worry about me, I am still lurking but just very busy at work and trying to stay upbeat.
I hope things go OK for the By Eck's today x
*leaves spare hugs and tea for Bricki*
Oh, thats pants, by 'eck. Don't know what else to say.
by 'eck - is there any follow-up at all? I hope you are not left struggling again on your own. That sounds a bit of a shambles. Hope its better than that.
Can I do a bit of my indulgence please? Mr Soup has now been admitted to Exeter Hospital for pain management and observation. In one way I'm relieved because he was struggling so much but I'm now sat in the hotel room on my own and wondering if I should extend the room stay and phone work. I'm meant to be going home tomorrow for work on Wednesday. I will see what tomorrow brings and extend the room anyway.
Sorry to hear your news Soupy, hopefully he will be on the mend. You're right to see what tomorrow brings, no point in making solid plans at the moment until you know what tomorrow is, NHS can be quick to discharge if they think everything is under control.
Hugs needed all round methinks. (((everyone)))
You really could have done without that by 'eck. Do hope you can get sorted soon.
Soupy - I hope your employer is understanding when it comes to these things. You certainly ought to stay around there if you need to.
Caz - any word from SOLB?
