I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
I'd love your motivation, thanks by'eck. You can keep the green nasal caterpillars though.
Fist admin task done. 5 more to do.
Credit card paid off in full.
Car insurance sorted.
edit - stupid double post deleted
Great news by 'eck
Another fun night at improv - unfortunately it leaves me pooped the next day
Pleased to hear about Moo. Long may it continue.
Well done on the improv Bear. You really seem to enjoy it.
LR - any more achery planned? You lot are tempting me to pick up my painting hobby again, or find a new challenge to have a go at (or both).
Most of my fidly little jobs done so thats a success for the Productive club. I've put in an offer to settle my tribunal claim against my employer too so fingers crossed. Acas is now on the case. I'm not asking for money, just for a less stressful and more understanding work place and for the investigation recommendations to be implemented. I've heard nothing since the last meeting and still don't know where I'll be working at the end of February which is a bit unsettling.
Better day for me after really struggling for the last 3 days. More productive day at work as well. Don't want to tempt fate but I think I'm good for a running club run tonight.
Soupy - the archery was a one off and was last year's new sport challenge. Got to think of one for 2013 now. Good to hear you've also had a productive day. Hope your chickens are a bit happier with life now it's turned a bit warmer.
Doctor's appointment tomorrow morning to report on progress or lack of and see where we go from here.
Lots of good news seems to be around tonight. Must be the snow melting Quick question...do any of you have a particular person who triggers you? I only ask as an ex of mine is one of the biggest triggers I have. And to add to it he also suffers from depression so knows exactly how much he hurts me. Most of my worst times have been because of him. He's very much out of my life right now but I still find myself thinking about him, and as soon as that happens I enter a cycle of bad thought, especially due to events that happened and makes me think I'm an awful person (long story short...he has a gf and i knew her, but we went on a group uni holiday and drunkenly got together quite a lot. felt terrible about it but really was not in a good place at the time so have no idea why i really did it. she later asks, i tell her the truth thinking thats the right thing to do, he denies everything to everyone and makes me out to be a 'pysco bitch'). So whenever I find myself thinking of him I question if I'm a good person or not. That's not a quick question in the slightest...apologies!
rwthw - I know exactly what you mean and yes, I do have people who trigger. One is my work colleague who I complained about. I had to phone my therapist a number of times because I just couldn't find an alternative way of thinking about her and part of me didn't want to. I wanted to justify my thoughts that she is a real bitch. I still think she's a real nasty bitch but I'm a lot better away from her. and those thoughts may mellow in time. The thing is, that even if what I was thinking is true I was totally over-reacting to it. For instance she hid some christmas chocolates from me which was pathetic and selfish, but to me it was akin to assault. I wouldn't have reacted like that with anyone else. My therapist said it was about deep seated beliefs about myself and her. I'm still working through some of it so that it doesn't happen again and I can avoid things getting to that level.
Caveat - she is bitch though.
Oh thank you. It's reassuring to know other have a trigger. Yeah...even though he's out of my life, I have bumped into him in the past / seen pictures of a friend with him and got so angry and worked up about it.
Yes, I would say I have a trigger - but it's one of those things I'm a bit wary of discussing too openly on here. Maybe some more PMs on this at some point.
Run achieved so that should be at least 5 miles towards this weeks total.
Don;t think I reported my total for last week - I can only offer one walk to work and one aborted run totalling 8 miles.
My dad is my trigger.
well done on the run! feel good about it?
Caz and by'eck - that's sad . I can't imagine how tough that must be having someone so involved in your life be a trigger.
For me its about something we've mentioned on here before, a sense of injustice. Mr Soup battled with that too in his black dog period. It can get all-consuming and very destructive but hard to deal with. I'm now asking myself "what does that mean to me?" to get to the deep inner belief. So if someone wrongly thinks bad of me, what does it mean to me? And then I challenge that thought, so if I think it makes me an inadequate person I have to look for evidence if that is true. Its not true and not everyone is liked by all, and my friends and husband, and people on here are more important to me. Its taking practice and will get easier if things don't get too ingrained and festered.
I have some handouts about thinking errors in pdf from beating the blues. If anyone here wants to send me their email I will gladly forward them on.
Might take you up that, Soupy.
