Mental illness and running

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

Argh!! I woke with a tight chest and irritating cough. No, Mr by eck wasn't sat on me. Toddled off to find one of moo's inhalers (they had all decided to join up and have a party rather than be somewhere I could easily find them), woke the whole household coughing and clattering, and now can't get back to sleep. I doubt it's asthma but it feels scary when it's happening as you just can't catch your breath. I had this over the summer when the pollen was really irritating.
Solb, fab news about spotty.
Is someone going to keep tally of our miles?
I did 8 yesterday (sub were sub-9mm which is worrying), and 5 slippy walk/jog miles in the week if they count. I may do a few more tomorrow.

Hi Bricki. Nice to see you back. 

Spotty hugs all round. 

Lovely photo Caz with your usual lovely big smile.  You are quite mad though. 

Got to dash back to watching tennis now. Murray needs to hold serve to stay in the set.

I can't see the picture on my phone and the internet is down AGAIN. I can imagine the smile though!
I'm not babysitting until 5.30 now. I don't want to go cycling, no idea why not, but have decided not to push it today. So long as I run tomorrow, book a docs appointment and start Spotties pooch to 5k schedule with him all will be well.

Hope everyone is feeling ok today x

Pooch to 5k...that's funny

SuperCaz - that looks amazing!! I am definitely a fair weather swimmer though! How can you deal with the cold!?

Had a big old cry last night. Over nothing really. Just anxious and blue. But it seemed my wishing for the snow to go had an effect - heaps of rain last night washing away the good few inches of snow...meaning I managed a 15 miler today. Got rid of that blue feeling for sure!

The same way as you deal with the cold or tired muscels when you run 15 miles!  I was only in the water about 30 seconds.

Really I don't know why everyone makes such a big deal out of the cold.  You are all fighting much bigger issues on a daily basis.  I know I will be warm again shortly but you are all delaing with stuff that has been going on for weeks, months or years and has no set finish date.

I am so proud of all of you for what you achieve every single day.  Don't try to tell me that I'm any more special than that.

Caz, That's very true, well said. Still, I'm not a fan of the cold even if I know i'll get warm later... Why I still live in England is beyond me...

Ha I'm too hot today

My name is by eck and I have an eating disorder

Well done by eck, that was brave xx
27/01/2013 at 15:23
Thank you Solb. I told Mr by eck last night. Today has been much easier.

Glad you're feeling better and that Mr by eck is being supportive. Are you planning on talking to the doctor?
27/01/2013 at 16:26
Nope most definitely not.
27/01/2013 at 16:27
We get on much better when I don't talk to him.
27/01/2013 at 16:29

(((by eck))).  Well done love. x  Shame you can't talk to your doctor though.

He would just try to make me take tablets, write it all in my notes and tell moo's drs. They then would think I'm causing his eating problems rather than his eating problems triggering this off agsin
27/01/2013 at 16:50
Oh sounds complicated indeed.
Still you know what you are up against now which is good and hopefully feeling more certain of what's happening will help you to feel a bit more in control. We're all here if you need us

Big hugs (((By eck))) and well done for coming out with that on here. 

Just been to my archery session.  Was really nervous to start with but after dodgy first attempts it came together and I relaxed a bit more.  A non productive day prior to that though.  I just don't seem to be capable of achieving anything before midday on a non work day so I need to get busy now.
