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

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.

We get on much better when I don't talk to him.

(((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

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.

Lr, I really battle with non productive days
27/01/2013 at 17:37
Thank you everyone. I wanted to admit it because I know I need help and support

by eck. The hardest part is admitting it (IMO), there will be help and support now you've made that brave move.

First run in a month today, I couldn't believe it had been that long when I saw my training diary but bad weather and a muddled head have taken their toll. Nice to see green grass and grey pavements again although I did nearly get blown off my feet in the wind! Did a very positive 7 miles then went to the pub for lunch with the family to celebrate my mum's birthday. A good day.

Well you know you'll find plenty of help and support on here, by 'eck.  Maybe in addition to the Virtual Running Club we need a Productive Day Club.

potato - I see you've entered IM Wales. Lots of pirates doing that again this year, you will be in good company. Are you getting/have you got pirate kit? There should be some good training rides coming up in the summer too. I'm down for Challenge Henley. I'd love to do Tenby but the sea swim and the hills scare the life out of me. It will be my first long distance too. Meant to do Outlaw last year but I was too ill to train, got panic attacks on the bike and all sorts of nonsense.  Good luck. 

PDC - what a good idea.
